Our father, Ken, passed peacefully at home after 93 years of great adventures.
Born in the village of Cwmllynfell, Wales, Ken immigrated to Canada in 1956 where he began a new life in Toronto. He met and married his first love, the late Rita, and they had three children. There was nothing more important than family to Ken. His smile and joy overflowed when he was together for family gatherings, which now expanded to include six grandchildren. While living in Canada, Ken kept his Welsh roots strong by being a member of Dewi Saint Welsh Church. He remained in close touch with his loving sister, cousins and other family in Wales.
Ken loved the outdoors, puttering in the garden, enjoying life at his cottage, and wintering in Florida. The last decade of his life was spent in Unionville, close to family and making new friends at Wyndham Gardens, especially his close friend Heather. Coffee hour, special theme dinners, and after-dinner sing-songs were popular condominium events. Up until a week before his passing, Ken enjoyed sitting outside in the afternoon chatting with his friends from the building.
Our father showed us to live life to the fullest, enjoy the company of others, and always live in the present. Thanks Dad.
Private interment for immediate family will take place in the near future. Please feel free to make a donation in Ken’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
