6 Condolences for “WOODWARD Ken”

  1. Michael Cornelius says:

    My sincere condolences to Ken’s family. I started working with Ken in 1988 in Lloydminster, Alta. He worked the ramp and I flew the Beech99 scheduled service from Calgary. He was such a bright, friendly and extremely competent fellow employee that I instantly respected. Our paths crossed in Naniamo and on into Kamloops. I was always reminded of his “smiley” and frienly demeanour as I saw him briefly on turns. A familiar face from 28 years ago. I will miss him. We basically started in the same industry along time ago mostly because we both loved airplanes. He will be missed. I always thought he was one damned fine person that stood out above the rest! I am truely saddened by his passing and wish his family well. We are ALL better people to have known Ken. Mike Cornelius

    Ken worked at our airport here at CNRL Kirby South. I never had much chance to chat with him but he was always pleasant and kind. Always offering a smile and a hello when we met in the cafeteria, or a passing joke in the hallway.

    Sending condolences to his entire family from the CNRL family here at Kirby south!
