  1. Dear Ken, Kory and Kopko family, Remembering working with your Dad at Waltec and spending time with both of your parents. I do remember the kidding. Always was fun going into the shop and just catching up. Jack and I will be thinking of you in the days ahead.

  2. Dearest Kory, Christine and family;

  3. Ken and Kory.

    Your dad is why you have such an incredible work ethic. Your dad LOVED being in the shop. He loved being around people. It was truly a joy to be able to grow up with your family.

    I got to have a coffee with him a few years back. I had popped into the Frame it Shop to say hi and he suggested we hit Tim’s. It was like getting to know him all over again. We must have spent two hours catching up. So glad I got to spend some time with him as an adult.

    My deepest condolences.

    Mike

  8. Harry is fondly remembered up here in Barrie, Ontario, where my late husband Terry Mills and I enjoyed many a late night dinner together with much laughter and camaraderie. I am very sorry to recently hear of his passing and your loss Ken and Kory. We always looked forward to his visits.
