Longlade, James Kenneth

It is with great sorrow we note the passing of “Ken” Longlade after a courageous battle with lung disease for many years. He is survived by his loving wife Barbara (nee Deyarmond) of 60 years, his children Bruce (Lise) of Oakville and Deborah Tillsonburg, predeceased by son Donald. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren James, MacKenzie, Davis Longlade and Jordan and Ashley Collings, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was one of 8 sons of Archie and Lena (nee Robitaille) Longlade (predeceased) of Britt. He is survived by brothers John Paul (Muriel) and Jim (Diane) of Montreal, sisters-in-law Liz Longlade, Theresa Longlade and Marie Longlade-Link. Predeceased by Damian (Colleen), Archie (Betty), Tom, Neil and Ed. He was a man of great faith and lived life to the fullest with family, friends, music and laughter around him. He travelled the North extensively during his working years in sales. He was a past President of ACT (UCT) Travellers Association. He enjoyed curling, golf and fishing on the Georgian Bay until health problems set in. A memorial mass will be held at St. Andrew the Apostle church, 1250 Barrydowne Road, Sudbury on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. Friends may visit the church from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lung Association or the Maison McCulloch Hospice would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Dear Aunt Barbara, Bruce, Debbie, and families. We were very sorry to hear about Uncle Ken’s passing. Growing up in Sudbury, we have so many wonderful memories of him and we always enjoyed his joking and teasing. And when we moved away from Sudbury, although our visits were less frequent, it was always great to see him, and he always wanted to know how everyone was doing. And of course he continued with the joking and teasing. Please know we are thinking of all of you and keeping you in our prayers.
    John, Laurie, and Family

  2. To Barb and Family. We are very sad to hear of Ken’s passing .We are sending our deepest sympathy to you and your family as we are unable to attend Ken’s service. Robert enjoyed his visit with Ken this summer, talking about Ken’s travels in the north, and about family and friends. Robert always remembered Ken asking for soup bones with a lot of meat. He will always be remembered as a great salesman of the north . Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
