BRODIE, Keith Ainslie - On November 6, 2022, Keith Ainslie Brodie passed away peacefully at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital at the age of 85.
Keith will be sorrowfully missed by Carol, his beloved wife of 65 years, his children Jim (Barb) Brodie of Uxbridge and Diane (Gary) Wallenwein of Markham, his grandchildren Brent (Rachel) Brodie, Robert (Laura) Brodie, Alysha Wallenwein, Camden Wallenwein and great grandson Oliver Brodie.
Keith was raised on the Brodie Family Farm on Stouffville Side Road and was the eldest son of Bill and Eva Brodie. He is survived by his brother Bryan and predeceased by his brother Neil.
Keith and Carol lived in Markham where they raised their family and were active members of the Markham Missionary Church.
Keith was a long-time employee of Bell Canada for 36 years. The last 15 years have been spent in their home in Uxbridge where Keith embraced the role of a friendly neighbour and volunteering at the Cardiac Rehab Centre at Southlake Hospital.
Keith was a quiet, patient and kind gentleman. He was known for his willingness to help and serve others, his integrity, faith in God and love for his family. He was such a handyman and excellent craftsman no doubt due to his guiding principle of “measure twice, cut once”. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix.
Friends and family are invited to A Celebration of Keith’s Life to be held on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at 1:00 with visitation one hour prior beginning at 12:00 at Low and Low Funeral Home in Uxbridge. A Private Family Interment will be held at Melville Church Cemetery in Markham.
In honour of Keith’s life, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
