Ken grew up in Kildare Capes and his love for the sea found him on the seas as a lobster fisherman for many years. He also worked in the potato warehouse for Frankie Shea and often in the winter months he would be founded in the woods cutting lumber. He also spent time working in the tobacco fields in Ontario. After moving to Moncton in the early 70’s he worked at Scotia Textile Wool Mill until his retirement. He loved the outdoors and he would often hit the roads on his motorcycle or go for long walks. He kept busy until his late 80s being the "family taxi driver" as he loved helping family and enjoy hitting the roads. He always had time for a game of auction 45 when asked.
