July 22, 1944 – August 1, 2022
We are saddened to announce his unexpected death after suffering through many months of complications following a slip on the ice in April.
Left to mourn his loss are his wife of 55 years, Jan, and their three sons, Todd (Kimberly), Matthew (Crystal) and Darrell (Sue) and his six much-loved grandchildren Kaleb, Paige, Hudson, Jaide, Lincoln and Finn. He was predeceased by his brother, Bernie, (Sandra) on June 23. He leaves behind three brothers-in-law, Bill and Bob Henderson, Peter Rivers, many nephews, nieces, cousins and their families.
Proud to have been a born Edmontonian, but having settled in Sherwood Park in 1970, Keith was a Land Developer who brought many changes in Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan and in Edmonton but had to retire early due to cardiac health issues.
Keith has been a member of Gyro International since 1976 and played many active roles. For many years, the family enjoyed time spent together at South Seba Beach. He was an avid golfer belonging to Belvedere and loved “putzing” in his yard. He loved his Sun City Palm Desert home in the winter and made many friends there. Keith and Jan enjoyed travelling to many countries over the years.
He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend to many and will be greatly missed. Family times were the best times. His sons will miss his wisdom, warmth, advice and support.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16, at Bethel Lutheran Church, 298 Bethel Drive, Sherwood Park.
The family is sincerely grateful to the staff of 6 West, Misericordia Hospital for their tender care and support.
Memorial donations may be made to the Heart Transplant Clinic, University Hospital Foundation to support the work Keith benefitted from over 20 years ago.Please leave condolences at www.glenwoodmemorial.com
