    Ken and I go back a long way. From St Kieran’s days in the 50s, to playing footy at Hillend and catching up at Power Station functions, down the street, or when I was operating my local business. We had a natural connection and conversation was always easy. Ken was an easy man to like. I am so sorry for your loss.

  67. To a man l was proud to call my Uncle. To me he was a giant not just in height but in heart as well. To everyone who knew him he was kind, thoughtful, reliable and a great mate to so many but to me he was a man l admired and adored. We shared many a conversation about footy, cars oh and his jokes and l will miss this. Sometimes we take things for granted and forget life is so precious and can be gone so quickly. I miss you Uncle Ken, Rest In Peace.
