John and Florence Patrick wish to offer condolences to the family. As we live on Howard Ave in Hamilton we talked to Ken often. He regularly would stop when I was out working on motorcycles or old cars. He had a friendly wit and even though he had a variety of issues going on he was a cheerful fellow and will be missed in the neighbourhood.
