Ken F. Pallett DDS
Died peacefully and with serenity in hospital in his 97th year. Steadfast and devoted husband for 61 years of Margot (nee Allen) of Ottawa. Ken was the loving father to Tracey (Lee Grant), Michael (Marjorie Anderson) and Liane (Craig Armstrong) and very proud “Poppa” to eight grandchildren – Lauren, Taylor, Matthew, Kathryn, Charles, Grace, Davis and Piers. Ken is survived by nieces and nephews across the country, who Ken dearly loved and appreciated for their enduring family bonds. A native of Edmonton, Ken was the youngest of 7 children born to Alfred R. Pallett and Helen Pearl Duffie. A graduate of Lisgar Collegiate, Ken gave wartime service with the RCAF Bomber Command for which he received the Distinguished Flying Cross. After the war, Ken earned his BSc from McGill. Following a brief period of service with the Geological Survey of Canada, Ken continued his studies at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry. Graduating in 1954, Ken practiced dentistry with professionalism and dedication for 43 years. In retirement, Ken maintained many hobbies and interests, most notably his relentless pursuit of golfing excellence. As a long-time member of Rideau View GC, Ken’s on-course results frequently fell maddeningly short of his expectations, which he accepted with humility and grace. As a husband, father, friend and health professional, Ken led an exemplary life and will be missed by his loving family and many friends. His family wishes him peace and eternal rest in the comfort of God’s loving embrace. Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 315 McLeod Street (at O’Connor) on Wednesday, September 4th from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. and on Thursday, September 5th from 2 p.m. until the time of the Memorial Service in the Chapel at 3 p.m. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Ottawa Mission or a charity of choice are appreciated.
