It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Keith L. MacVicar of Edmonton Alberta.

Keith was born in Minto New Brunswick, the first child of six to the late Leonard and Jean MacVicar. He first moved to Western Canada in the early 1970’s and remained there throughout his life often returning to the Maritime provinces to reunite with family and friends, usually unannounced and unexpectedly. Keith was always passionate about was his work and finding solitude and serenity through his long drives. He also greatly enjoyed his frequent trips to Walmart and Canadian Tire. Keith also loved to travel abroad and in doing so met his final life partner Susanna in the Philippines where after many visits they were successful in relocating Sussie to Edmonton where they resided until his death.

Along with his siblings Marilyn, David, Rita, Ruth and Glendon, Keith is also survived by his two sons Greg (Lise) and Troy (Wendi) , his two daughters Nicole and Kimberly as well as his three Grandchildren Corey, Ethan and Molly.

In accordance with his wishes there will be no formal service, instead we ask that you share any fond or humorous memories of him in the comments section.

Of course donations may be made in Keiths memory to the charity of one’s choice.

I was leaving for the hospital for baby # 3 to discover there was a flat tire on the car – Keith is in the hall with only his trousers on going in circles saying “Here take my car I can change a tire but I can’t deliver a baby” He and Kathleen were great neighbours with baby Greg at that time.

  11. Keith accompanied my husband to Philippines when he picked me up in 2008. First time I met Keith, my impressions were negative as he cursed a lot. Little did I know, that is just his way. Since then, Keith has been a good friend. He’s been at many of our gatherings and with many visits in between. He was always full of life and made people laugh. Together with his partner Susie they visited my family in Philippines on one of his vacations. To date, he is the only Canadian friend that met my family in the Philippines. He will surely be missed. May his soul Rest In Peace and our deepest sympathies and condolences to Susie and his family.

  13. I worked with Keith for many years. Now there is one guy who you couldn’t slow down. Give ol Keith a pack of peanuts and he was ready to hit the road with his next delivery. I’ll never forget his trademark grumble, always left a smile on my face. Always ending his chats with a sharp “okay!”

    My condolences to his family and friends. He was a great guy to know.
