Kenneth Wayne James Petrie was born July 11, 1946 in Stratford, Ontario. In 1957 when he was 11, he and his family moved to Cobourg. In 1972 they moved to Furnace Street across from Memorial Arena where he eventually worked for many years.

During a month-long visit from his grandfather one summer, Ken learned to play ball which sparked a life-long love of sports. He was an avid bowler as well early in his life.

The Cobourg Cougars made their entrance onto the hockey stage in the fall of 1965 joining the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League. Community minded businessmen, Clarke Sommerville and Jeff Rolph, provided the means to put the team on the ice while Ken Medhurst and Dick Robinson provided the team leadership. The nucleus of players was recruited from Cobourg’s two-time OMHA Midget AA finalists.
