His father’s occupation was as a jewellery maker, but he also did some work for other businesses at night, so they could make ends meet during the Great Depression. In 1938 Kenneth moved with his family to Miami Beach, where he attended public school until 1951, when he graduated valedictorian of Coral Gables High School. That same year (1951), he convinced his mother to move their family back north again because it seemed like there were more opportunities for a young entrepreneur in Montreal. After graduating from McGill University with a degree in commerce, he started Tropin and Co., selling fresh citrus fruit on the street to passersby.

In 1973 Kenneth married his wife Elizabeth, an immigrant from Russia (they met while they were both attending McGill). Together they had three daughters Karen, Nancy and Kathy and one son Keith. He died of leukaemia on January 11th 1991, at age 56 years old, leaving behind five children: four daughters and one son.

Kenneth is passionate about golfing with his friends on the weekend and spending time with his wife and two kids–the youngest just started kindergarten. Outside of work, Kenneth has a keen interest in reading books written before 1900 because he finds their storytelling more vivid than those published today.
