Our beloved former Principal, Mr Kenneth (Ken) Taylor passed away peacefully last week with his family at his bedside. Ken served as the College’s first lay Principal between 1976 – 1986 and he left behind a tremendous legacy. Brother Mark who served as Deputy Principal at Marist-Sion College from 1980 – 1982 remembered Ken’s life and work with great affection. “Ken was a visionary leader with a loud and commanding voice. When Ken bellowed people stopped.”
Ken was a proud family man and a devoted husband to Alma (who was a former teacher here). Much loved father and father-in-law of Neal and Tina, Paul and Ros, Virginia and Tony, Bernadette and Derek (dec), John and Cheryl, Catherine and Wayne, Joanne and Jim, Matthew and Adele. Adored Grandpa to all his grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchild. Loved by all his extended family. A true gentleman.
