1. I was never fortunate to have known Kenneth. He has been in many family conversations and I was determined to find him although was hoping for happier news. He was the cousin of my Mum Cynthia and her siblings Valerie and Ian who grew up in Great Harwood. We even got the photo album out a few weeks ago. Sending my condolences to his family and friends.

  2. A very kind man who always liked to chat with me about cooking. Sadly missed. RIP Fr Ken.

  3. Many, many hours of conversations, coffees and celebrations. You will be remembered with love, laughter and joy, just as you always made us feel. Rest in peace, Ken. Tito and Andrea xx

  4. I recall my visit to Ealing in September and our chats together and how impressed I was by your interest in how the brothers you knew in the seminary and afterwards were doing and your patience and good humor in spite of being bedridden and in a lot of pain. May the Lord welcome you to the joy and tranquility of heaven. Columban SSCC

  5. Fr. Ken, thank you for your warmth, kindness and love. You love of God was a lived experience in word and action. Rest in peace good man.

  6. I say thank you, Barnesie baby — the times we worked as part of your “cooking crew” when the Sisters of the Love of God had a “day off” – Martin

  7. Very many happy memories of your years in Epsom, dear Kenneth; your kindness, caring and thoughtfulness will always be remembered by those of us who knew you in those days. May you rest in the peace you so deserve with our loving Lord and those who loved you on your earthly pilgrimage. Mary C. (Mary Brendan)

  8. Visits to my uncle Ken since I can remember were a highlight of my visits to London. He is missed very much already.
