Keith coached youth soccer, attended school field trips, taught Sunday School, and was a member of Trinity Memorial United Church. Keith spent his entire career with the BC Provincial Government. Keith’s 38 years with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure leaves a lasting legacy throughout the Province. He was passionate and excited by his work and provided exceptional leadership as the Director of Field Services in Kamloops.

Keith took great joy in golf, racquetball, traveling and trying anything once, true to his motto that we should “Live life to its fullest and cherish every magic moment”.
