We can’t believe that it is Ken’s anniversary, come so soon. We miss you Ken. On our last visit we had several chats relating to you and your dearest wife, Mavis Newman-Smart. You may have gone but your living examples of life experiences will not be forgotten. You did your job on earth and now that period of goodwill ended suddenly. We believe that you are in a better place now. It’s sad you left us so suddenly. To the Newman-Smart and Pabs-Garnon families we say God knows best why he was called home so soon. May his soul rest in perfect peace and harmony and peace. Amen.  …


Remembering dearest Ken on the first anniversary of his death. We honour him as a loving husband to Mavis, devoted father and grandfather, so fond of his siblings, all his family and friends who meant so much to him. He blessed so many people. We pay homage to the life of an amazing person who had such a remarkable career as a teacher and mentor, transforming student lives. I was indeed fortunate to know such an inspirational figure. May his Soul continue to RIP. …


It’s sad to remember that we have lost him. However, that’s life. May he continue to rest in perfect peace. …

” Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names” – Proverb.    Ken, it’s hard to believe that a year has already passed since God called you home. Our hearts are still heavy but the sweet memories of your humor and kindness bring a smile to our faces amidst the tears. I remember the day when I visited Ken & Mav and to my surprise I saw Ken with a full face of white beard. Of course, the name ” Father Christmas ” sprung up and that formed the highlight of the visit- with much bantering and teasing. Our ” Father Christmas” is now our angel in heaven looking down and consoling Mav, Karl, Kirsten and the grand-children. Notwithstanding,  I am sure you and my old man are still in the ” teasing/provoking” business up there. Ken, the days we spent with you were incredible! The life you lived and the people you touched will remain in our memories for ever. Continue to Rest In Peace!! Till we meet again….. …


Uncle  Ken I still miss you  i will continue to pray for you may your soul rest in peace ✌ …
