One of the most unique and complex and plainly wonderful individual that I had the fortune to have met and spent time with. Ken, you shall be missed but let me tell you …never forgotten. Rest in peace friend.

From: Kim (Nick) Nickolchuk
Relation: friend of the family

To all the Lamb family: It is with great sadness when I read of Ken’s passing. He was an icon of Baker Street for so many years. I saw him very often when I was at work at Stanley Baker’s Cafe. Always brought a smile to my face as he did “his rounds”. We would have these quick little chats on the street that were always a delight. I can assure you he is in a unbelievably, beautiful place right now. My heart goes out to all of you. Take care of yourselves. Love Nick.

Shawn, very sorry for your loss. I often heard from my mother that she really liked and admired Ken.

From: Kevin Connolly
Relation: Friend

Dear Shawn, Marianne and the Lamb family.
Sincere condolences on the death of Ken. He touched many lives and was well loved in his life. I remember he always made time for people and was at ease with serious discussions or lighthearted jests. His quick wit caused me many a double take – only to spot the twinkle in his eyes. All the best, Kevin.

From: Julia Ratcliffe
Relation: My neighbor for several years

Ken was a wonderful and intriguing neighbor to my family for several years on Silica st. He was very kind and generous… and he knew how to make a delicious homemade brew 🙂 I will look back at those years as neighbors fondly.
My condolences to his family.
