May 7, 1928 to July 23, 2020
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Keith Edwin Markham, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
It is with great sadness that the family announces Keith’s passing at the Renfrew Hospice on July 23, 2020 at the age of 92.
Keith was a legend in his family, known for his keen intelligence, his quick wit, his self-deprecating humour, his colourful expressions and for many of his ill-advised home renovation projects.
Keith is mourned by his wife Barbara Markham(nee Kidd), by his daughter Karen Markham and by his son Peter Markham. He was dearly beloved grandfather to JordanTannahill, Jessica Markham (Mike Shields), Andrew Tannahill (PascalleCarpini), Valerie Markham and Scott Markham.
At Keith’s request there will not be a funeral. A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date.
If inclined to do so, in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Renfrew Hospice or the Pembroke Regional Hospital.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little-but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me-but let me go
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me but let me go.
