April 28, 1943 – December 14, 2021
In loving memory ~
With hearts filled with sadness we share that Keith died on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at Stanford Place in Parksville.
Keith is survived by his long time life partner, Lorraine Kemps and her family; daughter, Felisha; grandchildren, Christian, Brady, and Tiana; brothers, Gerald (Marjorie) and Raymond (Cindy); sister,Margaret Lynn (Larry) Chernuka; several nieces and nephews; as well as many extended family and friends in the Alberni Valley. He was predeceased his parents, Leonard and Connie Randall; and his daughter, Becky Ann Randall.
Keith was born and raised in Port Alberni. He graduated from ADSS (old school) Class of 1962 and went to work at Somas Mill for a few years before moving on to Pacific Towing where he worked as a Crew Hand on the tug boats for a short period of time before becoming a dispatcher/Manager for the next 40 years until retirement.
Keith loved a challenge – this brought him to sports. In school, he played soccer and baseball – a game he learned to love. After high school he joined the Major Mens Softball Leaque where he played for several years. Those years playing softball remained his fondest memories throughout his life. After ball, he went on to join the Alberni Dart League and played competitive pool for many years. He then carried on to golf which he played until his passing.
Keith would like to say thank you to a special friend, Barry Bowman for the many years of support and lasting friendship and a great golf partner.
In keeping with Keith’s wishes, no services will be held.
