In Loving Memory of Kenneth William Benstead

In his mind he could still go on but his body gave out on Aug. 22nd 2019, just shy of his 92nd birthday.
He leaves his wife of over 69 years, Helen, who he met at 16, she 18, while they both worked for her uncle.

Also left to remember him are daughter Jenifer(Olaf Lindow) and the Lindow clan Scott(Angela) and their children, Kirk(Samantha) and their children. Son Greg(Marilyn Stafford) and grandson Liam. Best friend and brother-in-law Ian Comrie, the Comrie, Mack and McCann nieces, nephews and their spouses and children.

He was predeceased by beloved son Jeffrey(1982).

At his request there will be no memorial or funeral services. He simply asked to have his ashes scattered near his parents and Jeff at the Necropolis Cemetery in Toronto.

In his honour, continue to be good to your family, friends and community.

Thank you to all the staff at Hyland Crest for your care and support.

Memorial Donations to the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Foundation would be appreciated by the family and can be arranged through the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., P.O. Box 427, Minden, Ontario K0M 2K0.

Dear Jenifer,
So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Jayne and I were just talking about him and your Mom a couple of weeks ago. I have so many memories of your parents up at the cottage and all the fun we had. We couldn't have asked for a better childhood. Remember me to your Mom, she was always so good to me. Would love to get in touch with you , Charlotte Carnegie Law

I am so sorry to learn of Ken's passing. I am a psw at Hyland Crest and had the pleasure of becoming Ken's friend. He was such a gentleman and always made us smile and in return we made him smile with our joking and cabitzing with him. He jokingly nicknamed my fellow worker Shaggy because she forgot her hair tie one day. The name stuck. He loved to visit with my son's dog Henry when he came to visit. He worried about his beloved Helen when she wasn't present in the dining room for her meals. Ken made our day so much better and the loss of him will be felt deeply. Please keep your memories of him close. I know Shaggy and I will. Liz Griffin
