He was always lending a helping hand to whomever needed it. Ken loved to chat with people and tell his stories from years ago. He had a large sense of humour, was always telling jokes, and he always looked at the positive things in life. Ken touched the hearts and souls of everyone that knew him. He is and will be, greatly missed. His home was Entwistle for 60 Years. Please feel free to share any pictures or stories that you have of him.
