He will be sorely missed by so many! His humour and his ability to say and do the most outrageous things in the funniest way possible are things we don’t often get to experience. And for certain, Kenn was an experience! Love to you, Dawn.

I am so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. I have known Kenny for more than fourty years In the younger years he made me shake my head and laugh Throwing used up cell phones under his truck tires and after running them over he would ask who was missing their phone. Oh he stopped some hearts lol. You will be missed, my thoughts to you Dawn.

He was my older brother. That meant a lot to both of us. He also was my first spiritual teacher. Kenn never dropped his spiritual beliefs, and I am sure he is twinkling with the stars and dancing with the wind now
