Keddy, Russel Curtis: Passed away peacefully on Monday, January 3rd, 2022 at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Russel managed his illness with strength and grace: always looking on the bright side and enjoying every moment he could with his family and friends. Russel Keddy was in his 75th year. He first called Nova Scotia home, and most recently Bradford. He was a man who took great joy in bringing people together: be it starting the Barrie Singles Club, a Tandem Bike Riders Club, or by bringing his favorite homemade baked beans to a potluck.
Loving father of Colin, Kimberly and Kellie, of whom both he and their mother Sally Leon, always held with great pride and joy. He will be sadly missed by his 6 grandchildren ~ Danni, Kyndahl, Sal, Chantle, Elizabeth and Dante as well as Kelly Wilson (mother to Danni), Jessica Puddifant (mother to Kyndahl), Salvatore Maltese (father to Sal and Chantle) and John Cascone (father to Elizabeth and Dante).
He will be fondly remembered by all of his siblings and his 7 nieces, nephews’, relatives and numerous friends. A Private Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of life will be held at a later date in Nova Scotia.
