    Sincerest Condolences to Dianna and family on the loss of Ken. For many years we were regular participants in the Friday night Finnerty auctions and grew to love and appreciate Ken and Dianna and particularly Ken’s sharp sense of humour as well as charity towards many of his older regulars. He was an interesting and good man. Time passes, the world changes but good memories remain. Rest in peace Ken.

    To Dianna and family, so very sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. He was a lovely man and always spoke so proudly of his family. You and Ken worked tirelessly and very well together and you looked after him Dianna, making sure he had everything with him when leaving to attend a special gathering. I remember one time he had a funeral to attend and you said “Ken, I put your tie in your pocket” – one little sentence, but it impressed me. My sincere condolences. God bless….Julie Gill
