    So many memories of Kenny through the years, from childhood and beyond. He was always a kind man with a huge heart. So intelligent and gifted. Bernie remembers him as a hockey team mate and a fellow Montreal Canadian fan. So much time spent together in their young years. A true friend to be remembered forever. Our hearts go out to Larry and Bonnie.

    Fond memories of the Schneider family – their family home on Main Street was just around the corner from my cousin Luella’s house where I lived when I moved to Wawa in January 1952
    Later worked with Kenny’s dad Jack shifting underground

  10. Condolences to everyone on Ken’s passing. Growing up on Main Street in the 60s we had quite a gang. Schneiders, Woods’, Koningens, Gerriors, Amos’, Taylors, Scotts and Cambells, and more, all in the neighborhood.
    Larry and Kenny were pretty much the ringleaders in those days being a bit older.
    R.I.P. Ken.
