    Our thoughts are with the family at this sad occasion. Ken was a gentleman and respected by those who knew him well. The vision of his canvasing for the Poppy campaign outside the Beer Store will forever remain in my mind. He has been sorely missed at the Legion and remain a part of our history at Branch 05-112, Royal Canadian Legion, Whitby.
