STANILAND – Keith Robert

June 30, 1983 – October 4, 2010

 Keith passed away on October 4, 2010 at the age of 27 years.

 Keith is lovingly remembered as  gentle, thoughtful young man with a heart of gold and a mind full of questions.

 Growing up, Keith was always curious to understand  the world around him and enjoyed learning about the great outdoors and its creatures from his father.  He  appreciated his time spent with family and friends, especially  weekends and vacations at the family cottage at Gull Lake. He kept a wry smile while helping his dad with the never ending landscaping efforts on his parents’ acreage.

 Keith had strong design and artistic talent that he had most recently expressed through welding. He had finished his Welder education at SAIT and was near completing his journeyman certification.

 Keith’s life was not always an easy one. Regardless, his love for his family stayed true and their world is more wonderful for having had him with them. We trust that Keith has found peace.

 Keith is survived by his parents, Rob and Nancy Staniland; his sister Emily Staniland; grandmothers Kathleen Staniland and Christine McDonald; aunts, uncles (cousins) Terri Lynn Staniland and Bryan Brunet (Joffre and Alexandra), Kathy Staniland and David Pavan (Ben and Sara), John and Marilyn Staniland, Mike Staniland, Scott Staniland (Mackenzie) and many extended family members in Calgary, Edmonton and British Columbia. 

 Keith was predeceased by his grandfathers Roy Staniland and Bill Good.

 A Celebration of Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Friday , October 8, 2010 at 1  p.m.   .

 In living memory of Keith Staniland, a tree will be planted at       Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.  Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    Nancy, Rob and Emily,
    My heart goes out to you as you struggle to accept Keith’s passing. Although I had not seen him for many years, I still have vivid memories of a wonderfully energetic and inquisitive little boy. The only comfort I can offer is a lovely saying from a wise man who, when asked about death, described it as “taking off a pair of tight shoes.” Although we pass, love felt and expressed never does. Know that Keith will always remember the love between you, as you will always remember and love him.
    Peace to you all.
    Cousin Deborah and Family
