Kenneth Dalby

At Ballarat on March 26, 2020.

Dearly loved husband of Anne. Loving father of Julie, Kenneth, Alan (dec), Rachel, Jason and their partners.

Dearly loved grandfather and great grandfather.


My beloved husband of 63 and a half years.

There’s a place in my heart

That is yours alone.

A piece in my life that no other can own.

The tears in my eyes I can wipe away.

But the memories of you will forever stay.

Your forever loving wife Anne.

Reunited with our son Alan.


A private funeral for Ken will be held. Details of a memorial service will be advised at a later date.

Funeral Notice

  1. I will never forget the first time I met you when I was 16, you told me to ‘speak up and be confident’ or I wouldn’t survive in the family. How true that advice was and also very rare for a man to advice a young lady to speak up in this world.

    I have so many great memories of you from singing at our wedding, our art talks and your stories about your family and England.

    Rest In Peace Ken

  17. My grandad , the strongest , toughest man I’ve ever know. You were the definition of what a man should be and I’ll always remember you for that. The endless love you had for nanna and the whole family will never be forgotten . From your cheeky grin to you quick whitted responses , you will be truly missed . With a tear in my eye I hold my head held high knowing you’re at peace now. Love you always and forever
