W. Glenn Keyes

The family of W. Glenn Keyes is saddened by his sudden passing on February 15, 2013 from injuries sustained from a fall six days earlier.  

Glenn, a long-time resident of Morrisburg, was well known by many from his years as manager of the Bank of Montreal in Morrisburg and from his community service on the original Old Home Week Committee, the Municipal Mural Project, the Lost Villages Society, the fundraising committee for the expansion of the Winchester Hospital, and as a canvasser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  

An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 60 years, he served in many leadership positions in the Church and completed two service missions in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, Kay.

Glenn was born in Kingston, Ontario, on July 3, 1928, to George Wilmer Keyes and Lulu May Orser and was raised on a farm on Wolfe Island.  

He attended high school in Kingston, and after graduation he joined the Bank of Montreal where he worked for 34 years – beginning in Kingston.  

He was transferred to Morrisburg where he met Kathleen (Kay) Markell, and they were married on June 18, 1951.  

They raised five children in Toronto, and then moved back to Morrisburg in 1970.  

In his younger days, Glenn enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, and curling.  

Glenn was predeceased by his wife Kay in 2006.  In 2008, he married Jeannine Maleau and they enjoyed two and a half years together before Jeannine passed away in 2011.

Glenn is survived by his sister, Doreen Crowder of Calgary, Alberta, his five children, Linda (Wayne) Snook, Kevin (Susan) Keyes, Ian (Cindy) Keyes, Randy (Julie) Keyes and Anita Keyes, as well as his 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.  

His children are grateful to Glenn for his legacy of caring, service, patience and integrity.  We miss you, Dad.

His funeral service was held on February 19, 2013, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Cornwall.  

Interment will follow in the spring at Fairview Cemetery in Mariatown, Ontario.
