Received word from Howard yesterday that our uncle Keith passed away on Sunday Feb 24th. We understand that Keith was still an active member of the Legion when Poppy Day rolled around each year. As kids we always considered going to Uncle Keith and Aunt Lillians house a treat.
Condolences to all.

With deepest sympathy to Rod, Jennifer, Greg, Brad and families at this time of Keith passing. Keith was a good friend of my late husband Ken Floyd when they worked together at Campbell's Dairy. We had many good times together when our families were young. I'm sure your many good memories of your dad will give you comfort. May God be with you.
