  2. My deepest sympathy goes to the family of Ken Galon, my long time friend.
    Ken and I attended Campion College, Arts & Science in Regina in 1966. We became very close friends… he had a keen sense of humour and wit. Most of the time, our minds were on the same page… without saying a word, we could look at each other and break out laughing!
    After school break, to pay off our loans as soon as possible, we worked together with the PFRA at the Diefenbaker Lake dam. Later, we restored the old SGI Head Office (Cornwall & 11th) with Jet Building Restoration cleaning the 7-storey building with RC-3 acid cleaner.
    The last time we visited was at his Dad’s funeral. I will miss my old friend because he was a good person who truly saw the “good side” of others!

    Linda:
    Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of Ken. He was such a lovely, thoughtful and caring person, and I always felt safely cared for as his client. Ken, with you and often Shannon at his side, worked very hard and always had my best interests at heart, and it is devastating to know that now you have lost him. My heart is with you and your family at this difficult time.
