IN MEMORY OF KEITH BOWER
1926 - 2021
Keith (our Dad) lived life at full speed for 94 years. Keith was a husband, father, tennis player, bicycle adventurer, harmonica player, animal lover, salesman, business owner, volunteer, and all-around admirable eccentric.
He left behind to follow in his size 12 footsteps are his daughters, Tracy (Paul), Kim (Steve), and Joanne; and his grandchildren, Alex and Simon. Keith was predeceased, by his beloved parents in England; his son, Craig (in 1994); and his wife, Marjorie (in 2014).
Keith left England as a young man to teach in Bermuda, later hitchhiked around the US dressed always in Bermuda shorts and socks, but his search ended when he fell in love with Vancouver and then with Marjorie and he stayed to raise a family. Until his final year, he could usually be found on the tennis court if he wasn't driving to the ends of the world in his camper, or climbing up onto his roof to clean the gutters.
Keith never liked to read fiction largely because he lived his life as a dog-eared novel. He would tell anyone that asked to just get out and enjoy life.
A celebration of Keith's life will be held on August 17, 2021, at 11 am (location withheld). Please RSVP to email@example.com if you wish to join us as we must be mindful of numbers.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Paul Sugar Foundation or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Goodbye Dad - the world will be a much quieter place without you in it.
