KENNETH JAMES STAPLETON August 22, 1944-December 5, 2012 Ken left this world at approximately 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, December 5, 2012 to meet our Lord after a 6 month battle with disease. The struggle led him directly into the hands of the Lord. He will be missed by Anna Marie, his wife of 34 years, mother Meda Stapleton of Port Hope, brothers Robert (Barbara), Frank (Betty), sisters Lynda and Carol (Bill), Cheryl and Kimberly (children), Marie Jalsevac (mother-in-law), Stephen and Bonnie, John and Joanne (brothers and sisters-in-law), Annette (sister-in-law) and of course all his nephews and nieces, whom he all had a special connection to. Ken also had a lot of friends everywhere he went, whether they be from a social or business connection to the funeral business and I know, they will miss him too. Born in Oshawa, Ken was raised in Newtonville, ventured out to Toronto at an early age and dedicated himself for a span of more than 50 years with Hallowell Funeral Home and Trull's Funeral Home now SCI CANADA. Visitation will be held at the Giffen-Mack Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 2570 Danforth Ave. (at Main Subway) on Friday, December 7, 2012 from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held at St. Dunstan's Roman Catholic Church, 3150 Danforth Ave., on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. Special thanks to Bonnie, Fr.
