Remembering Ken Menzies
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ken Menzies on June 15, 2018.
Ken was spending his working hours in a leading role with the Moncton Branch of Richelieu Hardware when he first joined the AWMAC Atlantic membership in 2006. He quickly became active in the affairs of the association and brought his industry insights to the table where he helped shape the direction, planning and growth of AWMAC Atlantic. We had hoped that Ken might attend, even for a few hours, the 2018 AGM.........but as it turned out, Ken passed away that Friday.
As Sarah Matheson of East Coast Specialty Hardwoods put it: "He did not steer away from tough topics, in fact, he was the guy we counted on to make us face tough and uncomfortable conversations. Ken didn't mince words, he said what he thought and thought what he said. This approach, in my mind, gives our association validity, which should not be lost going forward. Ken had the highest regard for our industry and, I believe, made us all stand a little taller and a little prouder. He was proud of the projects that our members built and he was grateful to be apart of it. We are grateful for Ken's contributions."
Ken was a mentor to many and a friend to all.
He will be missed!
