Marian Lalonde (nee Watts, Ken's daughter) I recently heard of Ken's passing and extend my deepest sympathy to Joyce and all of the family. I to (like Moira) remember many visits to the family farm when all the boys would take time out of their busy day to visit with their Uncle Ken. I can still see Ken standing in the very large kitchen sharing and enjoying the conversations...I remember him to be very kind and always happy. So sorry for you great loss.

Moira Herman nee Watts As Ken's, Uncle Buster's daughter, I extend my sympathy to your entire family at Ken's passing. I remember his passion for antiques . As a child I remember my Dad taking me to the farm and my Aunt Gladys calling the boys up to house with the old telephone. My Dad thought so very much of the all his nephews. So sorry of your loss He will missed.

Jim Racknor ... my condolences to the entire family ... my father Don and I didn't always agree on everything but we both had great appreciation for the opportunity to know Ken ... for me, that was since I was about 10 ... while he kept popping up in so many different places throughout my life I will always remember him first as a worthy fastball opponent in Princeton and as a wonderful fastball teammate in Oxford Center and second as a completely believable Santa for the Willsie Family Xmas reunions ... I also remember once on the Balls farm when we couldn't get a heifer to go up the ramp into Ken's truck so he just grabbed her tail, hoisted her up on tippy-toe and marched her up and in ... so sorry for your loss

My condolences to the family. May you look forward to the fulfillment of God’s promise to resurrect our loved ones in the near future. “He will swallow up death forever and... wipe away the tears from all faces.” Isaiah 25:8
