BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.
