This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Kenneth Drouin who was born on January 22, 1971 and passed away on January 9, 2005.
Those that knew Ken Drouin well know he was a leader who took initiative, who not only was self-motivated but inspired others. He was charismatic and quick to make friends to which he was loyal. Ken was a kind and thoughtful son to his parents Maurice 'Moe' and Pauline. He was an inspiration to and set the example for his sister, Michelle. Ken was a loving and generous husband to his wife Jennifer. He was a dedicated father to his two children, his son Brandon and his Daughter Caitlin. Being a father was something that Ken always knew he wanted in life and the joy he received from this roll was clearly evident. Ken was extremely gifted and skilled in so many ways. It is amazing to think about how much he accomplished in his short life.

"Can't believe that it's been 10yrs.Doesn't seem possible. Think of you often. Brandon and Caitlin must be getting so.big now, haven't seen them for along time.I.know my kids are almost all grown up.Rest in peace My friend."
"Always thinking of Ken when I am out walking or xcountry skiing on "his" snowmobile trails...hope his family knows that he will never be forgotten xoxoxo"
"Remembering all the good times ....thinking of of you all sending love xo"
"Thinking of you often especially this time of year when we were snowmobiling together. Miss you..."
"Love you Ken. Was up at 12am to about 2:30am thinking about you.
Wish you could see your kids and your nieces and nephew. You would
of been a wonderful uncle. Every time the snowmobiles go across
the street we think of you. We will never forget you."
"Hard to believe its been so many years, time goes by so quickly...Kenny, I picture you smiling, always that big, beautiful smile, and imagine that you, Jen, Brandon & Caitlyn would probably be off snowmobiling on a day like today. I'm sad that your family has to be with out you and that you never got to meet Michelle's children and be their fun uncle."
"Started working on snowmobiles and riding, started thinking about you and the times we where riding. great times, great memories.Miss you alot."
"Seeing all the snowmobile trails... I know that is what you would be doing right now. Monica had lots of questions about you the other day. It made me smile remembering and sharing with her. I know you would have been an awesome Uncle to her. You would have had fun with Thomas and Julia too. Thomas has a mischievous grin about him that reminds me of you. Miss you Brother..."
"Ken was a very kind soul. First meet him through his sister Michelle in HS, then met up again a few years later through a bowling league.
Was sad to here of his passing."
"Thinking of Kenny on this day and yesterday and always remembering his beautiful smile."
"My memories of Ken are his boundless enegy and bubbly personality. Ken knew I am a man of few words. Uncle Roger"
"Loyal, fun, loving, kind, generous.. the list goes on. So many memories and good times makes it hard to capture just one. I remember being in college and receiving a card on my birthday from Ken. We had lost touch, but he remembered my birthday! It was the perfect card. (he is Pauline's son after all). He touched the lives of so many. Today Ken, I remember you, and miss you on your birthday."
"Ken was a true package. Traits that made him special were his smile, his contagious laugh, determination, pride in home and family, true friend, busy working on his many projects or helping others and his ability to make you feel important in his company. We miss you and take comfort in our fond memories of you. Aunt Pat"
""Kenny..you are sadly missed everyday, you touched the hearts of so many. I am grateful to have had you as a friend. We had good times together. You were the perfect friend to have. I remember some of the talks we had, the partying we did, and best yet....you letting me drive down the back-roads....Thank you for the good times Kenny. I miss you"!"
"When I turned 40 on January 1st, I had Ken in my thoughts. I remember him always smiling and making others do the same, Remember kiddos that you dad is watching and is very proud of you. Everyone should live life as if tomorrow is the end. Enjoy family and friends each and every day. Kenny we miss you, may you RIP"
"Fun - that is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Kenny. When we were little, he was always coming up with stories and adventures. We had great times camping with our families. I remember how much he emulated his Dad when he was little, always wanting to be one of the guys. When we reconnected years later, it was like we had not lost any time at all. He was a great person."
"Your tribute made me laugh Trisha, thank you. Yes, Ken enjoyed his fresh vegetables strait from the garden though I don't remember us growing onions, radishes yes. My father used to get so frustrated about the garden and the "missing vegetables"
"I was not around him a lot but when I was we had a great time. I remember him building anything and everything out of wood or just anything that was lying around.He loved to pick onions out of the garden and eat it like an apple. He was always up beat and friendly with everyone. I always remembered him having a smile on his face no matter what was going on. He will be missed by all."
"Kenny was a man that everyone liked. He was a wonderful son, brother, husband and father. I pray for his spirit every night. I know that he and Chris are having a great time together in heaven!"
"So glad to have known Kenny, even if just for a short time. He was a great guy who always had a beautiful smile and a helping hand for anyone in need. He was a pleasure to be around and it was so sad to lose him so suddenly and so young. I think of him often, when I am walking in these woods of Pownal and on the snowmobile trails. I always think of him on January 9th and everytime it snows..."
"Your life was honored today with all of your family together. The candle was burning and your light was felt. Miss you Kenny."
