MACLAREN, Kenneth (Ken ) -

Passed away peacefully after a long struggle with Parkinson's and prostate cancer, on April 14, 2014 at the age of 86 years.

Predeceased by Margaret, his beloved wife of 60 years. Cherished father of Keith (Carol) of Ottawa and Scott (Jose) of Niagara Falls. Proud grandfather of Brian (Christina) and Kathryn (Jacob) of Ottawa, Jamie (Isiah) of Edmonton and Cameron (Ghinel) of Toronto and great-grandfather of Logan.

Predeceased by two brothers, Colin and Laughlin and survived by brother Iaian in Burlington.

He will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews and many long-time friends made along the way.

Ken was born in Scotland and came to Canada in 1952 after a short service with the RAF. He married Margaret on December 25, 1952 in Hamilton and later moved with family to Jerseyville.

After a 20 year career with Westinghouse, he then began a new career with Canadian Tire until his retirement as General Manager of the Upper James store 20 years later.

He was, along with Marg, a founding member of the Jerseyville Riders and a long-time member of the Canadian Kennel Club.

Ken was known for his tremendous sense of humour, his ability to tell great stories and his sage advice.

The family wishes to recognize the loving care, comfort and support of the wonderful staff at Macassa Lodge over the last 6 years.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Ken's life will be held later in the spring.
