  2. My condolences to Ken’s family. I have just learned of his passing.
    I worked with Ken for 3 years or so when he was Sen Sgt at Nunawading from 1990 to 1993. Very happy to serve under him with his expert knowledge and advice. I had and have great respect for his leadership. A thorough and professional Police Officer, and a damn nice bloke as well.
    Fortunately I had the opportunity to meet and talk briefly with him about 18 months ago.
    Sadly Missed

  8. Ken
    I worked with you in the late ’80s at Nunawading PS. You were a great boss, mentor and friend. You helped me through some awkward and traumatic times with work providing advice,compassion and direction which is severely lacking in today’s world. Morning teas were the norm back then under your command allowing for a form of comedic debriefing in what was at times a difficult job. A venting for our mental health. Your kindness and caring for your troops was above all. Denise and I still have the exquisite gold leaf bible you gave us on the birth and christianing of our son in 1988. This will be handed to our grandchildren with great pride. The odd rostered Reno was also bit of a laugh. Your humour, sometimes dry was always meaningful and relevant.
    Condolences to the Mollison family for your loss but much to celebrate on the life and the man.

    Allan & Denise Smith

  9. Ken I never had the privilege of working with you, but I was privileged to have you as my father-in-law for near 20 years and that I thank you for. You supported me personally during some very difficult times in my life which I will be forever grateful, you were always there for the many that needed help and true to your family and friends. Your passing will certainly leave a huge void for Brad and Dayna and my thoughts are with them during this difficult time. You had the fight of your life, now is your time to rest in peace for ever after.

  16. Ken was an honest man who possessed exceptional integrity and ethics. He has a genuine desire to help people, without compromising his personal qualities. Over the more than 46 years that we knew Ken, we were proud to call him a true friend. He will be sadly missed. Our sincere condolences to Brad and Dayna. May he rest in peace.

  17. Condolences to Ken’s family and friends. Although I never worked with Ken (other than Russell Street when we first graduated) we were in the same recruit squad at the old Police Depot in 1967. In later years we kept in touch via email and Ken, myself and others organised our recruit squad 50 year anniversary. Ken’s registered number was 15479. I was 15478. I remember him as being a wise man who didn’t tolerate fools.

  18. Dad …. You were always reliable, dependable and ON TIME! We made a good team from me handing you nails as a little tacker to renovating old houses and developing land together. Always there to lend a helping hand to anyone and bright and witty making jokes with the nurses until the end. Enjoy the next chapter no doubt charming everyone along the way. Love ‘Number One Son’ – Brad xx
    Special thanks to all the awesome staff at St John God Hospital, Ballarat, for making Dad’s final days so comfortable. You are truly amazing people.
