Sorry to hear of the loss of Ken, he was an amazing person to work with. He hired me on at Common Weatlh CU (now Servus) and I took his encouraging words with me through my career. "Keep going and you'll go far"
You made a huge impact on my life! Thank You... My condolences to the family, he treasured you so...

To Louise and family ..
My deepest sympathy .. The first person I met when I attended the GP branch of Common Wealth Credit Union at the time was Ken. He made me feel welcome and at ease with his down to earth personality and caring nature. He often spoke of his family so was very proud of you all. I worked with Ken fir only a short period but will remember him for a long time. My deepest sympathies.
A gentleman has passed

So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. He was a gentleman and a fantastic man to work with. I had the privilege to work with Ken late in his banking career and found him to be a man of care and integrity. Condolences to the family. He spoke often and fondly of each of you.
With Deepest Sympathy

We were so sorry to hear of Ken's unexpected passing. We have such fond memories of Ken and the many, many weekends we spent together with the boys. I remember fondly how much Ken enjoyed spending time at the rink and how good he was to Scott. Please accept our deepest condolences.
