BAILEY, Keith:

June 5, 1935 –

February 26, 2014

Keith passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving wife, Annette and son Keith Jr.

Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, he later made his way to BC as a young man to work for his family at the Texaco Service Station. It was while working there he met the love of his life Annette. They were married in Natal on May 24th, 1958.

He spent the rest of his days raising his family and enjoying life to the fullest here in the valley. Keith enjoyed the outdoors and spent many hours camping, fishing and hunting. He also enjoyed curling and most of all snowmobiling in our beautiful valley. There was even a couple of trips over the mountain pass to Banff, Alberta.

Keith was known for his very friendly personality and always there to offer a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He was very generous with his time and always supportive of any activities his children or grandchildren were involved in. Lots of miles were driven hauling his two daughters and their horses to horse shows and gymkhanas over the years in the summer and spent lots of weekends at the snowmobile cabin with his son.

Keith is predeceased by his parents and infant son, Gary. He is survived by Annette, his wife of 65 years, his three children; Keith Jr., Colleen (Mike), Lynnette (Stephen), four grandchildren, Lacey, James, Kyle and Jared, along with his seven siblings.

Our loving husband, father and papa, rest in peace, your memory will live on forever in our hearts and we will miss you dearly.
