Keith Burgess

July 29, 1947-April 20, 2024

I am sorry to announce that on April 20, my husband Keith passed into eternity. He died peacefully at home, as he wished.

In addition to his wife, Katherine, he has left our children Alec Murphy (Jenn) in Halifax, Rob Burgess in Quebec, Vanessa Burgess (Shawn Daigle) in Labrador and Lori Underhay (Dennis) in Edmonton. He has also left our grandchildren Kandace (Eric Irakoze), Gaetan, Kaegan, Logan, Jesika, Liam and Kariss, and great-grandchildren Aleia Jesseau and his little buddy Aurora Irakoze, as well as his brother Gary (Janet), sisters Gwen (Wayne Hiscock) and Cairine (Wayne Thistle), brother-in-law David Skinner (Susan) and sisters-in-law Deborah March, Megan Skinner and Bobbi Zahra. In addition, he had a number of cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved.

I wish to thank the Palliative Care team at the Jeffery Hale Wellness Centre for their support over the last months, especially his nurse, Louise Fortin, who did everything she could to make Keith’s last days comfortable.

There are many other people I would like to thank – too many to name here. Please know that I am grateful for all of you.

As Keith wanted, cremation has already taken place, and a celebration of his life will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Quebec City on August 31. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, or to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Quebec City.
