Kenneth Wayne Middaugh of Milton died on September 13, 2022, after a short but valiant battle with cancer. He was surrounded by love and loved ones.
Ken was the beloved husband of Linda Middaugh. Loving Father of Edwin, Brett, and Leslie (Chad). Grandfather to Taylor, Mackenzie, Sacha, Samuel, Mae, Brady, Colby, Avi, and Leo. Son of the late Lorne and Laura Middaugh of Shelburne, Ontario. Dear brother to Helen (Sonny), Stan (Lorna), Claire (Pat), Marie (Roger), Edwin (Ruby), Grant (Gloria), Robert (Judy), Linda (Jim), Bonnie (George), and Lorna. His wife, children, and grandchildren were the centre of his world. He was deeply proud of each of his children for the unique individuals that they are and was always there for them when they needed him. Throughout his life he maintained a deep love and connection to his extended family, including many dear nieces and nephews, and was always proud to have come from the village of Riverview.
Ken had a long career as an elementary teacher, teaching middle school science for many years at Centennial school in Georgetown. He was a proud graduate of McMaster University where he met his dearest friend and kindred spirit, Murray Parrott. Murray, his wife Pat, and their son Matt were like family to Ken. He maintained a friendship throughout his life with his former partner, Fern. Ken will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by all his family and friends for his intelligence, warmth, and thoughtful nature. He was an astute observer with a unique and wry sense of humour.
In addition to family, Ken loved sports, playing guitar, books, newspapers, and rock and roll. The Blue Jays, Argos, Maple Leafs, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones were lifelong passions. In his later years, he had opportunities to see the world, traveling to China, Alaska, and Great Britain and spending winters in Florida with his beloved Linda.
In his final weeks, Ken never failed to express kindness and gratitude toward all who cared for him at Milton District Hospital, maintaining his warmth, courage, and good nature to the end. The family wishes to express their sincere thanks and gratitude to the many fine and dedicated nurses and doctors who cared for Ken in his final weeks.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
