Obituary for Kenneth Wesley Dale Newburn

NEWBURN, Kenneth Wesley Dale
The family announces with sorrow the passing of Kenneth (Ken) Dale Newburn at the age of 83 peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, March 22, 2019.
He is survived by his loving wife Dorothy (Dot) of 62 years. Remembered always by his children - Dan (Ann), Patty (Doug), Cathy, beloved grandchildren David (Michelle), Sarah, Logan, Luke, Laura, Tim and great grandchildren Chase, Landon, Kurtis and Cameron and numerous other relatives.
Born May 14, 1935 in Midland, Ken was a career cop joining the Ontario Provincial Police in 1956, serving at numerous detachments before retiring in Perth in 1988.
He was an avid volunteer with many organizations notably the Lanark Children’s Aid Society and Lanark County Children’s Services, recently receiving an award for 32 years of outstanding community service.
Ken was quick witted and will be remembered for his love of a bargain, sense of humour, love of practical jokes and ability to spin a yarn. He was a loyal Toronto Maple Leafs fan and cheered loudly for the Montreal Expos where he often watched them play at Jarry Park.
His true passion was his family and dear friends who he leaves with a lifetime of fond and fun memories. He lived and loved and worked and played.
The family wishes to extend immense gratitude to the doctors, nursing staff and care team at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital who provided compassionate care, laughed at his jokes and stories and kept him comfortable in his final days.
To honour Ken’s wishes there will be no visitation or service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Great Memorial Hospital of Perth District Foundation in Ken’s memory are appreciated (

Mr. Newburn’s arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the O’Dacre Family Funeral Home, Perth. 613-237-3082
