We are so sorry to hear of Keith’s passing and will miss seeing him bicycle up to a garage sale that we were also attending in the Crowsnest Pass. It seems that we were often on the same garage sale trail on many sunny pre-pandemic weekends. We enjoyed his quiet manner, and I especially enjoyed his coffee making as Barbara and I enjoyed a conversation. He will be missed. Kindest memories, Rachel Newrick and Ian Crawford.
My condolences go out to Barb, Roger and Gregory. Keith and I had a number of great hikes and rides in the Crowsnest Pass in the early to mid-2000s. Keith was just very steady on his feet. He had a quiet laugh, but he was a just a great guy! Keith, we will all miss you!
I met Keith in Crowsnest Pass. A group of us used to volunteer for the Eaglewatch Foundation spring and fall hawk watches on the Livingstone Mountain range in Crowsnest Pass. He was hands down the best hawk finder in the group, sitting there quietly and diligently all day long and 150% focused! He was always so calm, and a pleasure to be around. Good memories of Keith.
Keith and Barb and I met when we were all students at UofT. We lived on the 14th floor of a highrise built for students. Keith was really smart. He was the only person I knew that could talk with me about the theory of relativity. He did not seem to mind that my speculations on it were not backed up with the math he understood.
On a lighter note: as students we were always looking to save a little money so started leaning how to ferment our own alcohol. The first batch of beer we tried in his closet was exciting. The place we lived was a poured concrete building. The beer bottles exploded burying a shard of glass in the plaster ceiling of the closet. We got better over time. We made a really lot once for a big party to be held on the patio of our residence. I do not think we thought of ourselves as "BAD BOYS" but the party was such a success that our neighbors, The University Women's Club, tried to prevent it from ever happening again.
He was a wonderful guy.
Condolences from Kerry and Marie Liles (Toronto).
We are saddened to hear of his passing and wish we could once again enjoy
a dinner of pizza and beer in Toronto with Keith and Barbara.
