GREEN, Ken “Benny” of Blenheim

Posted by on July 2, 2015

Website Pi

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our husband and father Ken “Benny” Green on Friday June 26, 2015 just two days before the birth of his first grandson Benjamin “Benny” Roger Cox.  Born in Chatham, son of the late Andrew and Mildred (Gosnell) Green, Ken grew up in Blenheim with his older brother the late Dr. Peter Green (survived by Peter’s wife Lyn), his sister Kathleen Perry (late David) of London and his younger brother David Green (Penny) of Beaumont AB.  In January of 1967, at a party in London, Ken met a young lady named Shirley Stanski and they fell in love. On August 30, 1969 Ken & Shirley married and began a life together that would span over 45 years.  He was especially proud of their two daughters Jessica Green of Calgary and Katie Cox (Todd) of Windsor.

Ken was larger than life.  In his younger days he played hockey with the Chatham Jr Maroons.  He was a lifelong learner whose education did not end with his graduation from the University of Waterloo.  His interests were many and varied; he enjoyed golf, playing pool, weekly poker games, gardening and dancing.  His appreciation of all types of music was known to everyone; he was constantly sharing his music collection with any and all who were within listening range.  His interest in cooking began with a cookbook he picked up out of curiosity, and this led him to become a great chef and caterer.  Ken also loved spending time with old friends and making new ones.  But most of all, he loved his family and the memories that he made with them.

In keeping with Ken’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date and will be announced.  Friends wishing to remember Ken with a memorial donation are asked to consider the Foundation of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance or the Blenheim United Church.  Blenheim Community Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements.  Online condolences for the family and memorial donations may be left at www.blenheimcommunityfuneralhome.com

Over a period of about four years he made twenty-five clocks with the help of his wife, for their family, grandchildren and friends.

Gordon is survived by his loving and devoted wife Blanche who has cared for him 24/7 since returning from the hospital after breaking his hip at Easter 2012.  Blanche also sat by his bedside for weeks in the Owen Sound hospital and later in hospice until he passed away.

He was a kind and loving father to four children, all who loved him dearly; Helen (Jack) Cumming of R.R. #2 Dobbinton, Keith (Sherry) Elder of R.R. #4 Chesley, June Craig of Guelph and Bernice (Don) Ewart of Owen Sound. Gordon will be lovingly remembered by fifteen grandchildren and twenty-seven great-grandchildren.

Gordon was predeceased by two sisters Gladys (Dave) Kobe and Ferna (Howard) Mackie and his parents John and Edith.

Visitation will be held at Rhody Family Funeral Home, Chesley on Thursday from 6 – 8 p.m. A celebration of Gordon’s life will be held at St. John’s United Church, Chesley on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 1 pm. Interment at Chesley Cemetery.
