Kenneth Frederick Harry Isaac of Parkhill died peacefully on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at home in his 88th year.
Ken and his cherished wife Jean (nee Laye) were together for over 60 years and would have celebrated 63 years of marriage this coming April. Ken & Jean raised their four sons, Daniel (Brenda), David (Jenn), Lee, and Mark (Karen). Ken was blessed to know the love of his 12 grandchildren, Tony, Crystal, Tasha (Zach), Rebekah (Jeff), Sarah (Jay), Amy Joy, Jonathan, Katherine, Stephanie, Alex (Kristine), Seth (Lauren), Andrew (Becky), 11 great-grandchildren, and 2 great expectations due in July 2020. Ken is predeceased by his parents Harry & Ruby Isaac and siblings Gerald Isaac (1990) and Carol Duggan (Isaac-Charlton) (2018).
Ken spent his early working days in road construction with many years working on the family farm. There Ken and Jean raised their boys, Ken’s pride and joy. He fixed old cars and enjoyed organizing and attending antique car shows, even starting the Corbet Car Show during the Corbett Fun Days.
Ken loved those cars, especially if it was a Dodge; he made sure each one of his boys got to enjoy the thrill of the ride, passing on to his sons a ’52 Fargo, ’56 Dodge Royale, ’58 Chevy Biscayne and a’78 Dodge Warlock.
Ken’s family would like to thank the wheels of hope volunteer drivers, the London Regional Cancer Clinic, the Chemotherapy Department, Ken’s PSW Brenda Beierling, and the VON. In honour of Ken’s desire to help in his own community, knowing the need at this time, donations are appreciated to the
