Donald Gordon Keith

Dec 2, 1930 – Feb 16, 2018
Don was born at the Chilliwack General Hospital, an only child for Ariel and Eva Keith. He grew up on the family dairy farm on Prest Road.

In 1962, he married the love of his life, Magda. They were blessed with two children, Alan in 1962 and Jo-Ann in 1965. In 1963 he took over the operation of the farm with help from his father and his wife. He “retired” in 1986.

He was a deep thinker who could design and build most anything. He constantly had several projects on the go, planning and building.

He passed away peacefully in the Chilliwack General Hospital with his wife and son by his side. He leaves to mourn him his wife of nearly 56 years, Magda, his son Alan Keith (Heather) of Kelowna, his daughter Jo-Ann Vickers (Darren) of Madeira Park and one grandson Cooper Rancier also of Madeira Park.

He was a man of few words who never made an enemy in his life and was well thought of by all he came in contact with. He will be sorely missed.

The family would like to thank Dr. Fitzpatrick, the nurses at CGH, 3 North and ICU.

A Celebration of Don’s life will be held on Sunday, March 4th at the Best Western Rainbow Inn from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
