Dear Uncle Ken,
We can only be eternally grateful for the warm welcome you have given us during our UK trip to Bruton. The combination of your interesting life stories, lavish high tea and splendid flowers in the conservatory really made our visit unforgettable. Moreover, your yearly Christmas letters have always been very much awaited, as you could see that were written with sincere interest for our lives. You were always up-to-date with what was going on in Venice, and concerned whether the High Water could have caused us any trouble. In every single letter you tried to cram all the events of an entire year, and we felt blessed to be allowed to partake in your life events. Your charity work, military value and good heart will be always remembered.
With love
Toniolo Family (Sofia, Irene, Franco and Valli')

Dearest uncle Ken
You will be fondly remembered for the loving, kind and caring person you were. You were such a knowledgeable person on so many topics - from your love of classical music to steam locomotives to aircraft and more (I recall many fascinating discussions regarding your Concorde flight !!). We could approach you for advice, and even if you didn't have the answer at hand, you would do your research and then come up with an answer. During your working life that we were privy to, the legacy you left in Botswana, Malawi,the UK and Bruton simply told the story of the brilliant man you were. In all our visits to you in Malawi, Bromley and Bruton we were treated like VIPs with so much love and hospitality, for which we could only thank you.
You will be sorely missed.
RIP uncle Ken

Thanks be to God for all the joy my father brought to both family and friends alike, as witnessed by the other posts here. And also for the love he showed to me, his som Michael.
My own happiest memories of my father are of the all too few times when I was able to share in some of his passions - I love to listen to people share their life stories with me: Railways and aircraft - the railway line that he lived alongside in his latter years, known as the GWR up to 1948 (God's Wonderful Railway to some!). He used to love to cycle as a child to a piece of railway track between the three railway stations that Yeovil then had, and watch the Pannier Tank locomotives (which he called "Matchboxes" from the shape of the water tanks sitting over the boiler) shuttling carriages and goods trucks between the stations. As he grew up, he also took an interest in the local aircraft factory, Westlands, and cycled there, a bit further away, to Yeovilton, so a good cycle ride away. He watched and took an interest in the designs of Teddy Petter, who made the Lysander at that time, and he told me of a rarely seen prototype of that aircraft with a gun turret at the rear which he saw tested.
He was, and is greatly missed.

Ken was admired for his commitment and tireless work on the aid programme, including two overseas postings, and for his friendship. During their devoted life together he had wonderful support from Maureen. They were good friends to anne and me and to many others.

Farewell to a good man and condolences to his family
