MacLACHLAN _ Kenneth Duncan October 14, 1918 - April 20, 2006 Our Dad peacefully left us on April 20, 2006, with his son, Doug, by his side. He also left us with many happy memories back dropped by the sound of his piano playing. He will always be remembered for his amazing sense of humour, wit and intellect. Dad was a veteran of WWII (RCAF) and worked for Coast Paper Co. Ltd., until his retirement due to a stroke in 1970. Most of all, Dad was a pianist. He played with Hank the Hobo, and was resident pianist at the Lulu Belle and Bayshore Inn for many years. Ken was predeceased by his wife, Hortence Mabel (nee Piper) in 1982. Left behind to cherish his memory are his children Neil (Gwen), Donna (Rick), Kendelle (John), Doug (Breean) and Corrine (Thomas), his grandchildren Lara (Ken), Ian, Piper, Sadey, Debbie (Ryan), Tanya (Jamie), Jennifer, Jonathon and Tyler, his great-grandchildren Ronan, Hanna, Kenneth, Hayden and Jared. Dad is also survived by his brothers Doug, Larry (Doris), brothers-in-law Don (Anne), Garnet, sister-in-law Hazel and many nieces and nephews. Ken will also be truly missed by the Segal family. A Memorial Service will be held at Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver on Friday, April 28, 2006, at 2pm with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the B.C. Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. "You will always be in our thoughts Dad, give Mom a hug for us. Love you!"

Dear Ken,
I just wanted to thank you for the many laughs and time we shared together. I didn't spend a lot of time in your presence, but the time I did, was always enjoyable. Whether at a family gathering or on the golf course you were quick with a joke and always saw the lighter side of life.
You are now at peace.
Watch over us.
To the family: Our deepest sympathy and condolences to you and yours regarding your loss. Losing a family member is never easy but take assurance knowing that Ken was a gentleman who impacted many lives in a positive, loving and fun way. Ken will be our memories.
Love and peace.
Paul & Anna Hayes & Family
