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.

To my “Aunty Anne”,
I was so saddened, to just hear of the loss of my “Uncle Ken”.
He was a wonderful genuine man, whose booming voice used to ovewhelm me as a kid.
I was never one to wear shoes, but if I had, I would have been shaking in them.
I had to get a little older before I realized it was all bark!
He was to me, such a caring man, and loved his family to bits.
My deepest condolences to Anuty Anne, Julie, Rachel, Jason and Kenny, and your respective families, and my thoughts are with you all.

JakeMarch 29, 2020
It broke my heart to hear you’d gone to another world. My heart fell apart even though you may not hear this but in the inside I was sad.
Every time I came to stay at your place it was because I wanted to spend as much time with you as I could.
Love your GrandsonMarch 29, 2020
Dearest Ken, I have so many fond memories over the past 15 years, and I knew I was part of the family from the moment you told me ‘your feet are under the table’ many years ago.
From family times together, our holiday in Thailand, Thursday night dinners, and most recently the treasured cheeseburger lunches we shared since your move to BUPA. Even when you were really sick Ken, sometimes the treat of a Macca’s cheeseburger was the only food you would eat.
Whilst I am deeply saddened that you are no longer here with us, I am somewhat comforted that you are no longer in pain and finally at peace.
Rest Peacefully Ken
Bentley sends his greatly missed Grandad, lots of love, cuddles & kissesMarch 29, 2020
Grandad, I will never forget the art lessons you gave me (I didn’t know there were so many shades); the many talks at the dinner table and the performance’s that I’d do at the end of dinner. I knew I was a bad dancer but when you were cheering me on I felt like I could be the best dancer in the world!March 29, 2020
Your smile was bright enough to lighten my day.
I will love and miss you forever Grandad.
With love always Savannah 💕
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 KenMarch 29, 2020
