Obituary

STANLEY
KEITH ALEXANDER

100 years old
(Well not really, 97.5 to be exact, but he’d appreciate being rounded up)

It's with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving father and grandfather on March 4th, 2019, peacefully & surrounded by love. Affectionately known by many as Grandpa. Predeceased by his sweetheart and love-of-his-life, Madeline (nee Murray). They are doing the box-step together now in the clouds, covering the floor and never passing the same spot twice.  Also predeceased by his brother William & sister Isabel Drynan. Loving father of Glenn (Janet), Greg (Judy) & Lisa (Dan). Cherished Grandpa to Kristi (Mark) and Ami (Brandon).
Keith was a family man who cherished his time with his children and grandchildren. He was a fixture on his front porch, waving and always ready for a visitor. Often described as a gentleman, he loved to chat and tease. He was well known and loved in Almonte and the Ottawa Valley.
Keith grew up in the village of Clayton and it always remained close to his heart.  He served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War, stationed at the base in Jamaica. Most of his life he made a living driving trucks: lumber, bread and ice cream. In his retirement years his dream of opening up Grandpa's Chips became a reality. He had his secret method for making fries and was told he made the best around. Never a man to be still, he also dabbled in woodworking and that too became a side business. Perhaps all this work was key to his longevity. He will be missed by many.
Special thanks to the staff of Orchard View for their loving care.

Private family service will be held in the
C. R. GAMBLE FUNERAL HOME CHAPEL
127 Church Street, Almonte, Ont.
(613)256-3313

For those who may choose to honour Keith with a memorial donation please consider the charity of your choice.

To all the family of Keith, sincere condolances. Keith was such a fun and wonderful man. He was our bread man, as I remember as a child always stopped to talk to his cousin , my Mom Winnie. He was the son of Aunt Annie and Uncle Clifford, he was a second World War Vet. He was the brother of Willie. The twinkle in his eye was always there. How special that he was your father. You have lost a special person . Eleanor (Aldus)

I remember Keith sitting in the hallway at Orchard View always dressed in his finest Hawaiian shirt with a smile on his face ready to chat with anyone who walked by. Always the kidder! Loved to joke and have a laugh. He had a good long life and you will miss him. Hold on to the memories. With sympathy, Neil& Mary Ellen Adams

I was very saddened to hear of Keith's passing. Absolutely one of the finest people I've ever known. Keith always had time for a chat and maybe a story or two. It was always a pleasure to meet him out somewhere and we always took a few minutes to see how we were doing. He will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences to Glenn, Greg, Lisa and families.
