The Story

Ken was born on August 30, 1924 in Toronto, Ontario, to James and Emily (Howard) Williams. He started working at Simpsons-Sears at the age of 16 in the shipping dept. He joined the army at the age of 17 as a signalman and returned to Sears after the war where he was promoted several times, working as a buyer in men’s clothing, then carpeting. He finished his career as the controller of the sporting goods dept and retired at the age of 55. Ken and his wife Marge then became Snowbirds splitting their time between New Port Richie, Florida and their cottage on Round Lake in the Kawarthas.

On Sept 15, 1950, he married Marjorie (Marge) Helen Whittaker. They raised a son Ken Jr. and daughter Susan.

Ken’s passion was his cottage on Round Lake where he spent weekends and summers and eventually retired to. Playing cards and fishing took up most of his day only interrupted by Cocktails at 4:00. Music that he could sing or dance to, filled the rest of his waking hours.
