    Hello folks,

    It's eerie how footprints last forever on the internet. I found this site awhile back in August when I was researching my Dad and his equipment, I planned to come back and inform you of the events of the accident when I was in a better headspace. I apologize in advance if I over share, Iím sipping a dram of Lagavulin 16, typing away on this with my Mac and listening to some Pink Floyd on these gorgeous Westlakes. Honestly things are a little emotional lol. I write this for those of you that knew Ken and called him a friend.

    I suppose I should introduce myself, I'm Ryan, 34 years old and Ken was my father. Me and my partner own a very small a/v & automation company here in Winnipeg, MB. I spent most of the day today with a few of my installers setting up my Dad's amazing Westlake speaker system in one of the empty rooms in my office. It was a difficult experience but also a bit cathartic. As I'm sure most of you know Ken really loved music, and it was a love we both shared. I visited this site again today to add a post about the accident and it was heartwarming to see the messages of support and condolences added to this thread. I didn't know my Dad very well for most of my life (I'm his son from a previous marriage long ago) but about 6 years ago we reconnected, and once he moved back to Canada we became very close.

    For those that would like to know I can say that my Dadís passing was very sudden and without suffering. He was riding out to the lake on his Harley Soft Tail Classic with his girlfriend (soon to be finance) Della. He was at a very happy point in his life. Back home close to family, healthy and in a loving relationship. It was at 11:30am Sunday that he struck the passenger side of an oncoming truck that was turning left off the highway onto a connecting road. The other driver was an 80 year old man and his 68 year old wife, they were both sober and just simply didnít see them. The elderly couple were released from hospital with only minor injuries. I have since forgiven them for the accident as it was simply that, an accident. I feel the spiritual and emotional burden of having taken someones life senselessly is far greater than any anger I could have for them.

    As his friends in this community I felt you all should know some further details, and see that his beloved audio system is in good hands. This equipment will be taken care of, added to when needed and passed down to my family. I should note that Iím nowhere near the audiophile my Dad was, so I may post here from time to time and call on some of you for advice if thats alright lol. I've also got a large amount of hobby audio parts and gear to go thru and don't know alot about it, I would love to get some information on it from those of you that posted below. So please PM me if you're interested in helpin me out

    Iíve attached a photo taken just after setup.

    Take care guys,
