April 16, 1932 – November 19, 2019
Our family is profoundly saddened to announce Ken’s sudden passing on Tuesday, November 19th at St. Joseph’s Hospital. He slipped away quickly and peacefully, with his loved ones by his side.
He was a devoted husband for 55 years to his beloved wife, Margaret (née Harris), the much-loved father of Allison (Mark Litfin) and Kathryn (Russell Rowse), and loving Grandpa to Christopher Litfin, who was the apple of his eye. He is fondly remembered by his nephews Mike and Vince Rutter and their families, and by all his treasured family in the U.K..
Ken worked at many different jobs before embarking on his career as an elementary school teacher. His retirement in 1989 allowed him to spend many years enjoying his family, travelling and doing volunteer work. He will be very much missed by his family, friends, and church and volunteer communities.
A visitation will be held at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St., Dundas, on Sunday, November 24th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. A funeral service will take place at Christ Church Flamborough, 92 Hwy. #8, Dundas, on Monday, November 25th at 2:00 PM, with visitation prior from 1:00 PM. Please join us for a reception in the church hall after the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations to either the Hamilton Foundation for Student Success in support of the Ken Snell Memorial Student Award at Westdale Secondary School or to Christ Church Flamborough, where Ken was a long-time member of the congregation, would be appreciated by the family.
