Obituary of Kenneth Neill Tupling

Ken peacefully passed away at Bradford Valley Care Community on Thursday, January 12, 2023, in his 92nd year.


Beloved husband of the late Jackie (nee Johnson). Loving father of Suzanne (Tom) McCasey, late Mark Tupling, Scott (Nada) Tupling and Elizabeth Tupling (Jerry McLean). Proud grandpa of Courtney (Michael) McCarthy, Nicole McCasey (Marcus von Reden), Alison McCasey and Kathleen McCasey; Laura (Kevin) Harvey, Adam (Jessica) Tupling, Rachel (Cody) St. Jacques; and Jacob Gourwitz. Cherished great grandpa of Declan and Beau McCarthy, George von Reden, Elliot and Isla Harvey, Ivy, Vera and Elijah Tupling. Dear brother of Judith Todd, Virginia Patenaude and late Russ Tupling. Ken will be fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.


Ken was a long time resident of Bradford and in 1952 he founded Tupling Insurance which is still in operation today. Among his many achievements he was a sitting council member for the Town of Bradford, past President of the Bradford Lions Club, past President of the Bradford Chapter of the Masonic Lodge and was the longest serving Justice of the Peace for the Province of Ontario. Aside from these accomplishments his priority always was his family and community. 


We would like to thank all of the staff at Bradford Valley for their care and compassion that was not only shown to our dad but to our family as well. They went above and beyond and for that we are so thankful. 


A private family service will be held, followed by a celebration of Ken’s life at IvyRidge Weddings and Events, Thornton, Ontario on Sunday, May 28, 2023 from 1-4 p.m.


In Ken's memory, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion, Bradford.
