Ken was born in Hamilton to Donald A Clarke and Lovise Sinclair Clarke. He was predeceased by his older sister Lucille (2016). Ken was the one and only to his wife B. Joan Clarke for 64 years. Together they created a beautiful family, living for many years in Leaside/Toronto; Sue (Steve, later Heather) grands Leah (Raj), Kristen (Stelian) great grands Adriana and Celeste, Peter and Patrick (Fernanda); Paul (Darlene) grands Jordan and Megan (Grady); Ian grands Laura and Kristin (Joe). Ken was our ‘Boppy”. He loved his wife Joan with all of his whole self. He became a hero to all his grandchildren who dared to enter the magic cave with flashlight and protective hat to find treats. Ken gave his best to Phillips Canada, later Lipton Co. where he earned an MBA. In retirement Ken and Joan headed for BC, bought a home and a boat and learned to navigate (at Joan’s command) the Johnstone Strait of the Inside Passage along with a small group of like-minded boating friends. Ken made wine, loved God, served his churches (St Cuthbert’s Toronto; St Andrew’s Sidney, B.C.) He did well without his beloved Joan (2015), but now he’s better. His soul is restored, rest well in the arms of the Almighty and in the company of saints.

I was sorry to hear of Ken's passing, and had been thinking about him, wondering where he had moved to. He was a man committed to do his best at anything he chose. We boated with Joan and Ken, on Legasea, with our Saanich Peninsula Power Squadron.
Following Joan's itinerary, we cruised to the Broughtons, and many of the Gulf Islands with them. He was an exemplary leader as our Squadron Commander, and later as the District Commander. He set a fine example, and guided me to also become a leader of our squadron. I was a pleasure working with him. Ken, thank you! Rest in Peace.

I am sending my condolences to the family, I know that Ken will be missed by all. He was a wonderful man and I was privileged to know him during the years he spent at St. Andrew. I still miss hearing Joan's voice next to me at choir, but now they are together again. Thank you for putting the notice of his passing in the T-C where I read it this morning.

My sympathy to the family, I know he will be missed.
I remember that I first met Ken and Joan here at St. Andrew Anglican church in Sidney. We served on our parish council, and so I rode with Ken to the meetings. Later I joined the choir and got to know them as a couple and so enjoyed their friendship. Eileen & Joan were the best altos and when Eileen left the choir to live in a care facility
