The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay is saddened to learn of the passing of Ken Mesher.

Known to many as Uncle Ken, Ken Mesher was a long-time resident of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. Serving with the Royal Canadian Legion, the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, and the Canadian Rangers.

Uncle Ken was a respected elder in our community and indeed throughout all of Labrador. His leadership and mentorship invoked calm and strength to many.

In honour of his contribution, flags in front of Town Hall will fly at half-mast until the evening of his internment, Sunday, September 26, 2021.
