We first met Ken and Joyce shortly after moving into the subdivision in 2004. We'd walk our 2 pups, Tinker and Belle, past their home and would stop to talk on all the important things of the day, that is ....GOLF! Immediately, we felt like old friends. Ken and Joyce even hooked me up for work in my last career...where?...on a GOLF course, of course! (Thanks to Terri, too.) Ken also said he used to play "rock and roll" in a band 'way back'. What he didn't say was the band was "Little Caesar and The Consuls", an iconic Canadian group from the 50's to 70's. Sadly, we never heard him play in person. Rest in peace, Ken! We're glad we met you and Joyce! Play on! Terry and Laura (aka to Ken as "Shorty") Wilson

I’m deeply sorry.  I know those words are inadequate, but I am truly sorry for what you are all presently experiencing. I remember Ken as a carrying individual a great husband, father and brother. It’s been a few years however, I will always remember the time spent with this family from playing his guitar around the the campfire in Alliston and many family gatherings.

My memories of Ken are from 50 years ago at the Belgian Club in Delhi Ont. I was in my late teens and it was always a special night when "Little Caesar & The Consuls" were appearing. I was learning to play guitar and their music totally captivated me. I would stand at Ken's side of the stage and watch how he played their songs. I would return home that night and try to remember what he did and thought of how I would get a red Gibson guitar like his some day. Sometimes in the bands breaks, he would come over and talk with me. I felt so privileged because I talking to the guitarist with Caesar. Those times there did not last and I never saw Ken again. But, I never forgot him and their music. Thank you Ken for a special time in my life. And oh, by the way... I did get a red Gibson guitar just like his. My condolences to the family.
