CAVERLEY, Kenneth Joseph - May 10, 1957 – December 6, 2022
Ken passed away peacefully at home with his family on December 6, 2022, from an advanced illness.
He was 65 years old.
Beloved husband and lifelong partner of Melanie (neé Green) for 42 years, loving Father of Sara (Chris McKaig), Lisa (Taylor Glazier) and Kelsey (Ricky McClenaghan).
Cherished Grandpa of Lorelai Glazier. Survived by his sister Sue Taylor (John) and he was a proud uncle to many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
Ken was predeceased by his twin brother David in 1970, and by his parents Joan (neé Thorpe) in 1982 and Truman in 2008. Ken was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario.
In 1980, Ken and Melanie were married in Toronto and together built a home and hub to family and friends.
Despite his illness Ken maintained a full and fearless life on his own terms.
He was, to the very end, passionate about his family and friends.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the healthcare unit who provided everything possible to make sure Ken was comfortable. We are grateful for the attention of Dr Perry’s team at the Odette Cancer Centre and for the caring Palliative Care of PSWs, nurses and doctors who gave Ken an abundance of kindness in his final days.
As expressions of sympathy, contributions may kindly be made to the Odette Cancer Centre or the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research at Sunnybrook Hospital.
Memorial visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 13th at Mount Lawn Funeral Home, 21 Garrard Road, Whitby from 4:00p.m. until time of service in the chapel at 5:00p.m. with a reception to follow.
