We have just heard that Ken Anderson passed away peacefully on 22nd January, surrounded by his family. He was 92. Ken had Alzheimer's and has had a difficult couple of years as a result, becoming very frail. He was a much-loved and appreciated Supernumerary Minister in this church and circuit. About 10 years ago, following the death of his wife Meg, he emigrated to Australia to be with his two sons and daughter and their families.
AMC's Ceita Johnson has been in regular contact with Ken and has visited him in Australia. She always enjoyed his rich fund of stories of his many travels including his time abroad as a missionary. Ken was an accomplished comic artist. many of his cartoons illustrating a fund-raising AMC Readers' Dire Jest Joke Book.
We remember with fondness and gratitude his relevant preaching, his values and opinions, his delightful company and irreverent humour. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends in many countries.
Ken's son, Gordon, has sent this link. He says, "The link is a memory book you might like to use/share, as Dad was so popular and respected".
