My Story…

“All you need is love, love, Love is all you need”
I grew up on the music of the Beatles and these lyrics remain timeless. They pay tribute to the work of the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off, its many supporters and volunteers, building our community year after year.
I moved to Red Deer in 1996 with my wife Isabelle and two children, Tamaran and Stephen. Over the years I have been very active in all facets of the City, including the United Way, the Chamber, the Westerner, STARS and Rotary. I concluded a 40-year career with Scotiabank in 2013 and embarked on a new career as a City Councillor thanks to the support of this City’s great citizens.
I am dedicating this dancing journey to my sweet Isabelle who we lost to heart failure in 2017 and to the extraordinary medical team at the Intensive Care Unit at the Red Deer Regional Hospital. What an honour to be invited to join in the 2019 Dance Off in support of the Friends of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. Indeed all we need is love!

Donate to help Ken raise money for 2019 Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off’s fundraising campaign.
