Ronald Everett Keith, 69 of Petitcodiac passed away at the Moncton Hospital on Friday, March 5, 2021.
Born in Havelock, he was the son of the late Wallace and Doris (Leaman) Keith and grew up in a family of 8 siblings on top of Powell Hill.
Ron had a 30 year career at NBTel, where he worked along side great comrades many with whom he formed life-long friendships. In retirement he enjoyed seasonal camping at TNT, playing golf, listening to music and playing crib with Louise since his move to Petitcodiac in July of 2020. Being able to help people with projects and have fun was his mission. He also loved cruising the roads in his Mustang convertible with the Abba tunes on repeat and his wonderful dimpled smile fixed in place.
He is survived by his son Nicholas; grandson Isaiah; brothers Richard (Joan) and Dale (Heather); sisters Patricia MacLeod (Rick), Marlene Keith and Judy Keith; sister-in-law Carol Keith; former first wife Donna Keith; cherished friend and neighbour Louise Fletcher and several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents he was predeceased by his wife Heather (Broad) in 2017 and brothers Larry and Roger.
There will be a private family service, with Covid-19 restrictions in place, at the Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800) with Rev. Stephen Brown officiating. Interment at Maplewood Cemetery at a later date.
If desired, memorials to the SPCA or charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
