It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Keith Lynwood Macadam. Keith left us after a short but courageous battle with cancer surrounded by family and friends at home.
Keith was predeceased by his parents Gerry and Lillian of C.R. Keith is survived by his loving wife Lois White-Macadam, sisters Linda [Carvil] and Diane[Terry], sons Mark and Wade [Wendy], daughters Penny, Melissa, Melody, Erin, Monica, and stepmom Gloria White. Keith was especially proud of his grandchildren Melissa, Clinton, Virginia, Ariana, Izabella, and Sebastian.
Keith was born in Vancouver and grew up in Calgary where his first job was picture framing before becoming an autobody repairman. True happiness for Keith was fishing and camping with family or friends and this is what led Keith to pack up the family and move from Calgary to Campbell River in 1975. As anyone who was here then knows, it truly was the best fishing anywhere, whether in the lakes, rivers or ocean. Keith spent many happy days camping, fishing and gold panning the Oyster River and was fond of his camping trips to Miller Creek with friends. He was very proud to call Campbell River home. To know Keith was to like him, a man of generous heart cracking jokes to the end.
A memorial service will take place 1:00 p.m. Saturday April 20, 2013 at Suttons Campbell River Funeral Home to be followed by a Celebration of Life at 1631-20th Ave., Campbell River, immediately afterwards.
The family invites all of Keith’s friends to bring a picture and a story if they wish and to join us in this celebration of Keith’s life.
Those wishing, donatations in Keith’s memory can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Special thanks to all the friends and home care staff who kept Keith comfortable at home.
