Ken was predeceased by his parents Sarah and Alex Savage, and brothers Campbell, and Dougald.

Ken was born July 24, 1923 in Miami and was raised on the Savage homestead. He lived on and farmed the homestead for 67 years. His love of farming and working with machinery was seen in every aspect of his life and work. He was involved with the Dufferin Agricultural Society for 35 years and was president of the young men’s section.

Ken married Frances Murray on June 19, 1951. Together Dad and Mom raised their family and farmed for many years. They took great pride in their yard and were rewarded with third prize in the Provincial Home and Garden competition in 1972. A farmer at heart, Ken finally moved off the farm after 67 years and put his skills to use fixing things at A&M Soil, and at Lloyd Nordquist’s in Carman.

Ken was a lifelong member of the United Church and served as an Elder. He was also a member of the Royal Canadian Legion.

After retiring from farming, Ken and Frances enjoyed traveling. They visited and saw many new places including Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland, Hawaii, and Canada from coast to coast. In later years he enjoyed his coffee time with his buddies at Break a Way. Ken also remained and avid curling fan throughout his life.
