Nov 29, 1944 – May 22, 2018
We are sad to announce the passing of Ken, beloved father, brother and grandfather and husband after a two year battle with cancer.

Ken was born in Toronto Ont, moved to Chilliwack in his late teens, then to Surrey and Langley and then back to Chilliwack in 1990 where he moved his automotive business, Ken’s Automotive and Vintage Auto Parts, which he ran for 45 years. His love for old cars had Ken collecting Hudson cars. His need for speed had Ken owning and sponsoring race cars, which became a fun family sport.

Ken is predeceased by his parents and 5 siblings, and survived by his sisters Ellen and Linda, children Pamela, Ken and Stephanie, grandchildren Bentley, Logan, Hunter and Gracie and his wife Lisa.

We will miss his infectious smile and quirky sense of humor which he had to the end.

We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Cascade Hospice who made his last day so comfortable.

Celebration of life will be held Friday, June 1 at 6 pm at The Royal Hotel, 45886 Willington Ave., Chilliwack
