Keith MacDougall passed away on July 3, 2015, in Calgary after a short battle with cancer, at the age of 60 years.
After graduating from high school, he embarked on a 27year career with the Canadian Armed Forces, mainly as a flight engineer with the air force and had the good fortune to travel throughout the world. His final military posting was in Winnipeg where he continued his aircraft-related career with Standard Aero. His final assignment with Standard Aero was in Abbotsford, B. C., where he retired in 2013.
Keith enjoyed meeting and being in the company of friends and family where he was all too happy to apply his dry sense of humour. He was an advert reader, tinker of computers, consumer of copious amounts of coffee and to the dismay of his family, he enjoyed fast cars. Christmas and warm destination vacations were a favourite.
The oldest of five kids, Keith is survived by his brothers, Kevin (Claire) of Calgary and Terry ( Heather) of Lloydminster; his sisters, Sandra (Gerard) of Glace Bay and Debra ( Pat) of Sydney, N. S.; and by nieces and nephews, Ian, Lindsey, Andrew and Adam MacDougall and Tyler and Logan Shaw. He is also survived by numerous aunts and uncles.
Keith was predeceased by his parents, James and Sadie (nee MacKinnon) MacDougall of Glace Bay.
There will be no funeral services held at this time, a celebration of life will be held at a later date in Abbotsford, B. C. and a family graveside service will be held in Cape Breton. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
