Born November 13, 1940 in the small farming community of Cereal, Alberta, to Allan Harold and Florence Caskey (both deceased), Keith passed away peacefully in Toronto at the age of 81 on December 18, 2021, after a short illness.
Keith worked for the City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation Department for many years, and after retirement pursued various interests and hobbies, which included painting, winemaking, ballroom dancing, calligraphy, travelling, and his love of nature. He was a member of the Royal City Calligraphy Guild, and the Japanese Cultural Centre. An excellent conversationalist, Keith will be fondly remembered for his wide knowledge of many subjects, his ready smile and infectious laugh, and his thoughtfulness and kindness.
He will be dearly missed by his extended family: Claudette Alcala; her daughter, Grace (Glen Walsh) and their children Matthew and Kaelynn; her daughter, Anna Santos and her daughter Haellie; her son, Jaime Oris (Eugene) and their children, Josef and Jenna; and his numerous relatives including five siblings.
For the last 30 years, Keith enjoyed ballroom dancing and Argentine Tango. He will be missed by all his dancing friends specially Ann Lewis and her Argentine Tango group 'La Cumparsita'.
According to Keith’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to Shepherd Village, or a charity of your choice.
