November 13, 1954 – May 31, 2010
It is with heavy hearts we announce that after a short but courageous battle with cancer, Gordon “Keith” Maxon of Calgary passed away on Monday, May 31, 2010 at the age of 55 years.
Keith was born on November 13, 1954 in Selkirk, MB and resided in the Selkirk and Lockport area before moving to Calgary in 1996. The majority of Keith’s career was in the flooring industry and his talented and keen eye always assured you of a job well done. Keith was always willing and ready to lend a helping hand to his friends, neighbours and family on big or small jobs. He enjoyed his musical friends and loved to show off his dancing crazy legs. Anything for a laugh; which was contagious.
Keith leaves to mourn his sisters and brothers-in-law, Ruth and Ray Brockest and Donna and Kerry Inkster; brothers and sisters-in-law, George and Judy Moore, Percy and Jackie Maxon and Glen and Yvonne Maxon; as well as nieces, nephews and numerous friends. He was predeceased by his parents Raymond and Edna Maxon.
Keith’s family invites you to a Celebration of his life at the Maxon residence in Calgary, AB on Thursday, June 3, 2010 between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m.
A private family service will be held at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Lockport, MB on Saturday, June 5, 2010. Flowers and donations are gratefully declined. As per Keith’s wish, cremation has taken place.
Keith’s family invites you to join them in a celebration of Keith’s life on Saturday, June 5, 2010 at Gaffers Restaurant, Lockport, MB at 2:00 p.m.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Diane and Bruce Andrews for their love and care; to Dick and Anne Ingram and family for adopting Keith into their care. We would also like to thank Dr. Lloyd Mack for being the quarterback involved in Keith’s care including the doctors and staff at the Foothills Medical Centre.
