From Bert Standring, Past President of the Royal Canadian Legion North Calgary Branch.

Keith has always been there when we have needed him, and I can’t say enough about him. He’s certainly been a loyal friend as well as a volunteer; he will be remembered for his sense of humour and his willingness to take on any task. It’s a tragic loss for us. Not only as a friend but as a volunteer, and the branch itself will dearly miss him because he was always there. He did a good job in being a sergeant-at-arms. He knew his job and made sure it was done right. We are going to miss him tremendously.
