Funeral Service for Ken Thom

On September 24, 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa. Loving husband of Karen. Cherished father of Christopher and his wife Bonnie, Stephanie and her husband Nicolas and Curtis. Beloved grandpa of Riley, Alexis and Maleia (who were the center of Ken’s universe) and one yet to be born to Stephanie in January. Dear brother of Larry, Pearl, Phil and Jo.

Many of you will also be aware of Ken’s love of sport and especially his commitment to coaching Paralympic athletes where he coached Bermuda in the London Paralympics in 2012. Who will ever forget the sight of Ken in his pink Bermuda shorts at the opening ceremony?

Ken was a member of the Canadian Paralympic Committee and coached his son Curtis, who is a Canadian National wheelchair athlete at the 2016 games in Rio. Ken also had a great love of football, which he coached in Streetsville-Meadowvale for many years.

Visitation will be held on Sunday October 15, 2017 from 1-3 pm at St. John’s Dixie Cemetery & Crematorium, 737 Dundas St. E., Mississauga, Ontario. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel at St. John’s Dixie on Monday October 16, 2017 at 2pm, with visitation one hour prior to the service.
