Kenneth Marsden

Obituary of Kenneth Thomas Marsden

Kenneth had worked as a motion picture projectionist in theatres in the Toronto area for 43 years until his retirement in 1992 and spent time hobbies and family for many enjoyable years in North York.

Kenneth proudly lived with his wife Jacqueline in their lovely home until she passed following a short illness on December 1, 2016 at Toronto Grace Hospital Palliative Care Unit at age 91. Kenneth then moved to Canterbury Place in Toronto.

Life continued on but never the same and his health and spirit deteriorated with several hospital admissions with falls and pneumonia until these last 2 weeks when he did not have the strength to go on.

He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his two sons, Larry (Annette) and Don (Mary), four grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Celebration of a life well lived will be planned for a later date for family and close friends. Internment in the fall in the family plot in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto. In lieu of flowers please consider donations to either the Canadian Cancer Society or The Salvation Army
