    Another great medic has gone to the upper camp.

    Ken was the dude who sutured my finger in the back of tracked ambulance while we on an arctic sovereignty exercise way back in 1970s. Over the course of about 30 minutes, his skills, professionalism and sense of humour inspired me to become a medic. Our paths crossed many times over the years in Calgary, Esquimalt and while on babysitting duties @ Vernon Cadet Camp. Occasionally, I cursed him over his influence upon me and my career choice but, mostly I thanked him for being such a being an excellent mentor and friend.

    No doubt, he’ll have everything sorted out by the time the rest of arrive…

    Condolences to Ken’s family.

    May he RIP.

    Rosa and I send our condolences to Ken’s children and grand-children, to you Clara and to his sisters Linda and Katheline and his brother Leonard . We are praying for the repose of his soul in a novena to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We also pray that you remain strong during this time of mourning. God bless, Michael & Rosa Maria Mainville

    Ken and I both served together in the Canadian Army in Canada and overseas. His daring made hardships more of a challenge than an arduous task and his sense of humour helped competently deal with any issues. He was just fun to be around.

    Condolences to Ken’s family.

    In Arduis Fidelis

    My condolences. Worked with Ken in 1979 after i graduated my QL3’s. Loved his laugh, his big cookie duster he had back then, made you laugh. I remember he once said to me “if i find all those thermometers are all shaken down you get a day off”. I had just done them and they were but he didn’t give me a day off. Bet he never said that again to a QL3 medic. We also worked together in Germany. Good memories. RIP Ken, hope it wasn’t a painful passing. See you in heaven.
