Ken was born on July 21, 1954 in Rosetown, Saskatchewan. He lived in multiple places throughout Alberta and British Colombia before settling in Taber in 2002 where he met the love of his life, Kathy. He was known for his love of softball through the many years of playing and coaching.
If not spending time with his family, Ken would enjoy the open road on his Harley Davidson, his pride and joy.
Ken was a husband, a father, an uncle and friend you were always able to talk to. He will be greatly missed being seen around town on his Harley with that big smile on his face.
