On Thursday, May 16, 2019, Keith Laporte passed away at the age of 41 years surrounded by loving family and friends at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie, Ontario.
Keith will forever be loved and remembered by his wife Jennifer and his son Cole (and Cole’s mother Cynthia). Father Paul Laporte, mother Nancy Laporte, and his brothers Derek (Jen), Craig (Gemma), Brian (Margaret), and sister Stacey (Dave) will always cherish the times they had. Keith will also be forever remembered by parents in-law Rick and Mary Thomson and sister in-law Lindsey Thomson (CJ). Keith will be forever in the hearts of his grandparents Alex and Doreen Kondruk, with whom he shared a special bond. So many aunts, uncles, and cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends will feel his loss and miss him immensely
Keith was an accomplished arborist with his own business and could often be found scaling trees all over Ontario. His especially kind heart led him to help out many people at no cost when he felt their safety was in danger. He travelled the country in times of need when his skills could be used to help others. He and his wife Jennifer also provided a loving home to a rescued bulldog Hudson (or ‘Huddy’). Keith now joins their recently passed doggy-kids Bentley and Mikey in heaven and is no doubt receiving many sloppy doggy kisses.
Cremation has taken place. No formal funeral service will be held, however a celebration of life is being planned among Keith’s closest family and friends. Details will be communicated through the family at a later date.
Special thanks to the wonderful staff at RVH and Peaceful Transition Cremation and Burial Services. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make a donation to your favorite pet shelter in Keith’s name.
