He was an active member of many community groups and organizations over the years.
Daniel is survived by his daughter Mary McKay-Keith, his grandchildren Frances, Eliza, Daniel and Liam , his great grand children Jack, Evan and Leo, a brother James, and many neices and nephews.He will also be greatly missed by his wonderful care givers, including Beth Green, “his right hand helper” for well over a decade. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Ann (McKay) Keith and an infant daughter Miriam, as well as seven of his eight siblings.
For Daniel , each new day held the possibility of a new adventure and he sought out these adventures with enthusiasm that was contagious to those around him. He will be best remembered for his love of people and his ability to reach out and make connections, bridging cultural and language barriers effortlessly. This gained him many wonderful friends far and wide. His gift for being interested in people and wanting to help out wherever he could has been a great inspiration.
