Dad was born as born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Ed and Connie Sleno.  When Ken was seven years ols the family moved to Vancouver.  There he worked with his father at a box factory.  In 1948 Dad married Colleen and moved to Powell River.  In the following years he worked in the logging industry, aquired mechanical knowledge to get a job at the mill.  There he learned how to weld and after eight years struck out on his own with Field, Welding and Maintenance – “Have Welder Will Travel.”  Years later he and Bob Johnson partnered up to open Precision Machining.  After selling the business Dad worked out of his back yard building wrought iron railings and general welding.  Dad was a man of many talents, always thinking of ways to make things better, willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed.  He will be missed.

The family would like to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Marentette and all the staff at Evergreen Extended Care for their dedication and support durining this time.
