    My heart is so sad to hear of this but I take such comfort in the beautiful legacy Ken has left behind. From the first times I visited the Funk household he always welcomed me with an abundance of kindness and laughs. I will forever cherish the chats and jokes in the garage and remember his sincere smile and thoughtful soul. Oh how I wish I could be there with all the hugs for you Nicole and family! Know that on Monday I will have take a moment on my own to be silent, remember the beautiful moments and give my respects for the life of Ken. Sending all my love and hugs, my heart is with the Funk family through this tough time <3

    Nicole …and all of Ken’s family…. we are so sad to hear of the sudden death of your beloved father and husband.

    I’m sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. I had coffee with him when he came out a few years ago with your daughter in Steinbach. I hung around with him in the 70’s and remember his laugh. What good times we had together fishing and card playing. He was well liked by all.
