IWAI, Kenneth Takeshi
Passed away suddenly in St. Petersburg General Hospital, in Florida, on March 31, 2006 at the young age of 70. Beloved husband of Elaine who he so cherished. Loving father of Darryl (Jan), the late Dana (David BROWN) and Dean (Kelly.) Adored Papa of Michelle, David, Matthew, Kaitlin, Darren, Ali, Connor, Jake and Daniel, a new grandbaby due in April and many nieces and nephews. Ken's life was a life well lived. Although he left us much too early, the last 8 years of his retired life was solely dedicated to his family, particularly his 9 grandchildren age 2-17, and his many Friends and golf buddies both in Canada and the United States. Ken was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on June 23, 1935 and moved east to Toronto with his parents and older brother Tosh after the war. He began working in the energy sector as a young man in his early 20's, and at the same time started his family with his wife Elaine. He worked for Canada Iron in sales and later sales management in the gas and oil valve division for almost 25 years before starting his own manufacturing business at the age of 48 in Burlington, Ontario, with California based partner Bob LYALL. In 1988, Ken founded his own national distribution company, KTI Limited, with head offices in Aurora, Ontario and branch offices in Calgary, Alberta and Montreal, Quebec. KTI Limited currently represents several Canadian and U.S. manufacturers operating in the natural gas and electric industries. Shortly after the tragic passing of his daughter Dana in 1997, Ken decided to completely dedicate his life to his wife and family. He and Elaine traveled the world extensively and spent winter months in Florida enabling him to play golf and enjoy the company of many great Friends all year round. Due to his vibrant love for life and the people around him, he leaves behind many close family and Friends both in Canada and the United States. He was considered a gentleman by all and everyone that knew him will miss his gentle disposition and quiet sense of humour. We would like to express a special thank you to his many Friends and family for their outpouring of love and support during this difficult time. The family will receive guests at the Ogden Funeral Home, 4164 Sheppard Avenue East, Agincourt, Ontario, Canada, (east of Kennedy Road), on Thursday, April 6 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held at The Aurora Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria Street, Aurora, Ontario, Canada, (south of Wellington, east of Yonge Street), on Friday, April 7 at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in memory of Ken Iwai to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation, c/o The New Regional Cancer Centre, at 596 Davis Drive, Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, L3Y 2P9, would be appreciated by the family.
