Atherley KennethATHERLEY, Kenneth Lorne   -  July 7, 1932 - December 13, 2022

Ken had many years of love and laughter with his late wife, Frances Louise (nee McGuire), who died in 1989.

He later met Sylvia Louise Knox on a double date and spent the rest of his life married to another wonderful woman. It truly was a wonderful life.

Ken was an icon in the steel industry before retiring to Wasaga Beach, where he and Sylvia ran an antique store. Ultimately, they moved to Picton, Ontario to be closer to family.

Through the years, he played league baseball and hockey (at the Gardens, no less), and owned two Standardbred racehorses.

He was an avid fisherman.

He died peacefully at Picton Memorial Hospital, listening to Old Blue Eyes, surrounded by his family, and cared for by angels disguised as nurses. Ken was predeceased by his first wife, Frances Louise; his daughter, Laura Denise; his brother, William Ernest; and his brother-in-law, Richard Brown.

He is survived by his wife, Sylvia Atherley (nee Knox); his daughters, Beverley Wood (Chris), Ruth Atherley (Paul), and Janine Fisken (Barrie); his grandchildren, Treana (Ryan), Amber, Denver, Conor, and Tanner; and his great-grandchildren, Dax and Acadia; as well as many adoring nieces and nephews.

Via Con Dios, Kenny.

May your next life be as full and happy as this one was – and may we all meet again.
