After a long career at the Dochart Brick and Tile Factory in Arnprior, Keith spent several years doing odd jobs for area residents. In retirement, Keith began to help out at the Funeral Home as groundskeeper and general maintenance person. He was always so proud of the work he did at our Funeral Home. Keith remained a loyal and dedicated employee of ours for many years. He moved to Almonte to be closer to his son and family a few years ago. A fine little man has earned his rest.
