AVIS, Keith Avis   -  September 17, 1946 - November 6, 2022

It is with sadness, the family of Keith Avis, announce his sudden passing on Sunday November 6th, 2022 in his 77th year.

Beloved husband of 45 years to Judy Avis.

Father to Kerry Avis Henry (Leon). “Popa” to Austin. Brother to John Avis.

A lifelong resident of Frenchman’s Bay, Keith always enjoyed talking about living by the water and recounting his dew worm picking business at the age of 5.

He recently retired from operating his business, Keith Avis Haulage Ltd, for 53 years where gladly shared his endless trucking stories with anyone who visited “The Shop” (including recounting the last haul of gravel down the DVP before retirement).

A private family service will be held with interment at Erskine Cemetery.

In remembrance, charitable donations would be appreciated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a CHARITY of your choice.
