THOMAS KEITH VERNON YEO
April 11, 1944 - February 1, 2021
Keith was predeceased by his sister Cheryl Louise in infancy (a twin to Sharon); parents, Thomas Henry and Phoebe Elizabeth (nee Ireland) Yeo; his great-nephew Nathaniel Henry Wiebe (November 1, 2012), his sister Darlene Russell (January 16, 2021), his nephew-in-law Rob Broadfoot (February 9, 2021).
He was born in Winnipeg and grew up in the St. James area. Keith is survived by his loving wife Wendy and daughter Sandra. Keith is also survived by his siblings and siblings-in-law, Bonnie (Mert) Roberts, Marilyn (Orville) Anderson, Sharon (Dan) McHugh, Lenny Russell, Paul (Nirvana) Yeo, Teresa (Robert) Wiebe, Betty (Cam Coad) Laporte, Clark Gregory, J. Andre Laporte, Aunt Frances (Ireland) Frew, Aunt Caroline (Ireland) Johnson, Hank Ireland, Aunt Marion (Lewis) Yeo, Aunt Velma (Rowe) Ireland, as well as many nieces, nephews, great and great, great-nieces and nephews, cousins, many friends and professional friends from the various boards he served on over the years.
In 1971 his daughter Sandra Lynn was born; she brought much joy and happiness to our lives. We were a very tight knit family and enjoyed travelling together and going to family gatherings. Keith was a quiet, gentle person, and in reading the messages in the many cards, phone calls and messages we received, words used to describe Keith were patient, hardworking, the best boss ever, sweet, kind, loving, respected, a true gentleman, a person who made a difference, and that he had a great sense of humour.
Keith loved his family and friends and always enjoyed being with them, he will be missed by so many.
We miss him more than words can say,
Love you Keith!!!
