To Keith's Family,
I was very sad to hear of Keith's passing. He had a special gift to connect with others. My grandmother, Hattie, and my dad, Paul, thought of him as family. When he came to see us at the log cabin in Burlington last year for Dad's Celebration of Life, my sisters and I were very touched! I'm truly thankful we had the time to reminisce and catch up that day.
My deepest sympathies go out to you.

Dear Family of Keith Parker:
My family have very fond memories of Keith as he was a dear friend of my Mother and Father and in his youth spent a lot of time with my father, Paul Saunders , and his Mother, Hattie Saunders at the log cabin in Lower Burlington. Dad often spoke of Keith and many fond memories, especially in his later years . It was so nice to see Keith at Dad’s celebration of life in 2019 at the log cabin. My deepest condolences.

My heart is heavy. I worked with Keith at Acadian Lines. I have not spoken with him unfortunately for a few years. I always said I was a better person because I knew Keith. Kindest person I ever had the privilege to call a friend. He will be missed. My condolences to his family. RIP My friend

Sincere condolences going out to the family of Keith;
Heaven received another angel when Keith received his wings - this kind, gentle soul was definitely one of a kind and will certainly make an impression in heaven. We will forever miss his stories (and those he had many) and will always hold a special place in all our hearts. He loved talking about his sons, Gordon and Garth, and always gave us an update on them - he was so proud of both of them and lit up each time he talked about them. We are going to miss sending him up Sunday dinner - and oh, how he loved the turkey soup. It was those little things we so enjoyed doing for Keith, as he was one of a kind.
Fly high with the angels Keith.

Sincere Condolences,
Brad, Mary, Dante, Isabelle and Abby Patten (Stoney Brook Court Apts)

Deepest condolences to Keith's family. I had many Hants County conversations with him when I worked at Dal. He would travel on his bicycle down to see me. He was such a sweet gentleman. May he rest in peace.
