  4. Remembering many happy times spent with Ken over the years. A great friend, he was loyal, generous, caring and kind to us on numerous occasions. A deep thinker with a great sense of humour. Ken always welcomed us into his home. He loved sharing food, wine, music, dancing and movies. We shall miss him.

    Eternal rest grant unto Ken, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

  15. I only knew Ken for a few years of his life through karate, however, I will never forget the worry I had when I was partnered up to spar with him during class, I am naturally very small and Ken very tall so It was always daunting. I will also remember how much Ken loved karate and how he came every week I was there without fail, especially the time he loved karate so much that he broke his arm, and didn’t even realise.

    Wishing you all the best Ken as I’m sure you’ll still be practising your kata even now.

    1. Thank you Nick for watching the service.

  18. Could not have been kicked and punched by a anyone better than Ken! One of the first people I met at the Tiger Spirit Karate Academy and someone who made us all feel welcome. Karate on Saturday will never be quite the same. Ken was a great teacher of other students and an inspiration to me, another more senior member of the class! I know you held back on your punches Ken, when we were opponents, so thank you.
    We’ll all miss you.
    Rest in Peace

    I will never forget many hours spent with Ken at karate, training with him, and having many a laugh. I was so sad to hear of his passing, and I am sure that those of us who have been touched by his friendship will never forget him.

  22. Myself and my son Finn will very much miss seeing Ken at Karate training on Saturdays. He was such a dedicated student, friendly and kind. Ken was a shining example of what someone can achieve if they set their mind to it. I firmly believe that no one is ever truly passed from this world if they are held in the memories of those who loved and respected them. Ken has so many people who will continue to remember him and remember him fondly.

  24. Condolences to the family and friends. It was a major shock to lose Ken and he’ll be greatly missed by the many friends he made in the karate dojo over the years. I’d always chat to Ken during the sessions and often afterwards. He was a kind and friendly person. He loved karate and was very proud of his achievements. He worked so hard on refining his skills in and out of the classes as he was so self motivated to succeed. Again he’ll be greatly missed.

    1. Thank you Rolando for watching the service.
      Jessica and Charmaine appreciate your kind words.

  25. Jess, Damien, Charmaine, Robert and families
    Peter and I wish to extend our sympathies to you on the death of Ken. Many good times of parties, friendship, laughter and sometimes tears have been shared. Memories created that will not be forgotten and we look forward to being able to share these stories and memories when we can come together in person. We are with you as you mourn his loss.

      Jessica and Charmaine appreciate your kind words.
