Sutherland, Joseph ‘Keith’
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather Keith (‘Sudsie to his grandchildren’) on March 3, 2012.
He leaves to mourn his passing his loving wife Mona, children Irene (Murray), Maureen, Corinne (Randy), Dean (Teresa), Janine (Marty) and his nine grandchildren.
He was looking forward to meeting grandchild #10 in April when Janine and Marty’s son will be born, but time was not on his side.
Keith and Mona enjoyed many happy years on Vancouver Island, where they fished and toured on their old ‘Tolly’ with family and friends. Keith spent as much time as possible with his brother Ken and they truly enjoyed each other’s company. Keith lived his life to the fullest. People who knew him recognized his wonderful outlook on life. His glass was always half-full and he was the eternal optimist.
A funeral Mass was held in the St. Albert Parish Church on March 9, 2012. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Keith’s memory to the Diabetes Foundation.
