It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Alexander Kenneth Linton, who passed away peacefully at Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Sat., June 4, 2011, in his 81st year.
He was the beloved husband of Audrey (nee White) for 60 years. He was the much loved father of Brian, Dale, Gordon (Joanne), the late Kathy, Shirley (Don Wagar), and Heather (Don Lewis). He was the loving grandfather of Jason, Tammy, and Sarah Wagar; Kenny and Lindsay Linton; Kyle Danis-Linton; Mac Lennox; the late Cody Simser; and the proud great-grandfather of nine.
Ken worked for Walkers Bread, Clark Dairy, and the Experimental Farm for many years before he and Audrey bought their own farm, which they sold in 1984, upon their retirement.
Ken was always ready to help anyone and never expected anything in return. He liked to play cards, and was a very good bowler.
A graveside service was held on Tues., June 7 at 1 pm at Reids Mills Cemetery.
The arrangements were entrusted to the Daley Family Funeral Home in Metcalfe (613-821-2120).
He was a wonderful husband and I miss him terribly, but know he is at rest and is no longer suffering.
I wish to say thank you to everyone that attended the graveside service.
Audrey Linton and family
