Kaney was a true and steadfast friend, training partner and travelling companion. He cared about everybody, and had unending curiosity from Biochemistry to sparring techniques. He loved Emi and his family, and was very proud of his grandchildren. I will miss him greatly.

We are truly fortunate if only once in our lives we have the opportunity to know someone like Kaney. In his inquisitive, caring, and humble way he touched our lives. His enduring sense of wonder, appreciation for the world around him, his unending determination and positive outlook inspired us and will continue to. He never gave up. I’m so glad to have known him, will miss him and will fill the sad spot in my heart with good memories.

I was heartbroken to hear of Kaney's passing. Grover, and I would always stop what we were doing outside to enjoy a conversation on karate with Kaney. Grover and Kaney would demonstrate some karate moves and once in awhile compare techniques. I will miss his love for the simple things life. His drive at the age of 80 to successfully acquire his black belt. His excitement when Ruby came to visit and help him with his gardens. His love for Amy and his boys. For 23 years we were blessed being Amy and Kaney's neighbours.

So sad to hear of Kaney's passing. I am so fortunate to be among the many students he mentored and befriended during his long tenure at Western. His intellect, curiosity, humility, and compassion were unmatched.

Kaney and I became friends and colleagues when he first came to Western University in the 1960s. My enduring memory is of the walks that we took together around the campus and discussed scientific matters and all manner of things. He was an excellent scientist and a great companion. Ian Walker

We were sad to learn from Becky yesterday that Kaney had passed. He was a good friend and respected scientist. I enjoyed the years in the Cancer Research Laboratory following the progress of his innovative research. We extend our best wishes to his family.
