Obituary of William-Calvin Keating

Obituary Text:

KEATING, William Calvin (Bill) It is with deep sadness that the family of Bill Keating of Ottawa, Ontario, announce his passing on September 16, 2006, at the age of 56. He leaves behind, with precious memories, his loving wife and caregiver for the past 14 months, Donna (Messervey), his daughter Trinda (Mark de Grandpre) and his son Bill Jr. (Jennifer Bond). He also leaves the light in his life for the past year, his precious granddaughter, Mya Grace de Grandpre. He is survived by his parents, Richard and Rita Keating of Stephenville, Newfoundland, his four brothers, Colin (Iona) and Rick of Edmonton, Alberta, Glen of Ottawa, Ontario, and Ken (Melinda Jesso) of Stephenville, his three sisters, Julia (Gordon Keating-Brown) of Ottawa, Ontario, Terri (Rosaire Cote) of Stephenville, and Glenda (Larry Hann) of St. John's, Newfoundland. He is fondly remembered by his two sisters-in-law Sandra (William) Caines of Toronto and Trinda Messervey of New Westminster, BC. He leaves behind uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends throughout Canada, the United States, and Saudi Arabia. He is especially remembered by his friends from "The Legends" Sonny Wood, Wayne Russell, and Tom Doyle. In his 56 years, Bill did more than most of us dream of in a lifetime. His professional life in the telecommunications field took him from various parts of Newfoundland to Ottawa and on to Saudi Arabia. During his stay in Saudi Arabia he fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a master scuba diver and went on to become licensed as a Scuba Diver Instructor. This designation allowed him to train several groups of divers in the Middle East including United States Marines. This new skill was something Bill was extremely proud of and he had hoped to continue this type of work upon his retirement. Cremation in Ottawa, and a memorial service is planned for Bill in Stephenville, Newfoundland on September 30, 2006. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, 503 Smyth Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K1H 1C4 would be greatly appreciated by the family.
