In Loving Memory of Keith Barnes. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Keith Barnes on August 5, 2023. Keith was born on February 21, 1974, in Port Hardy, BC, to Sylvia and William Barnes. He was a beloved son, brother, and friend to many. Keith is survived by his loving family, including his brother Dennis Barnes, and other family members Greg Barnes, Robert Barnes, Lorelie Muma, Linda Barnes, and Marcia Barnes. He was also cherished by his parents-in-law, brothers- and sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and cousins. Keith’s presence brought joy and love to all those who were fortunate enough to know him.
Keith was a dedicated journeyman electrician who took great pride in his work. While living in Edmonton, AB, he not only excelled in his career but also dedicated his time to volunteering in the community. He was always willing to lend a helping hand with electrical projects and renovations, ensuring quality work for his employers. Keith’s commitment to his community and his passion for helping others will always be remembered.
Family was of utmost importance to Keith. He cherished the time spent with his brother Dennis, eagerly assisting him with his rental business. Keith was a devoted caregiver to his mother Sylvia, taking care of her since his father’s passing. Together, they enjoyed exploring the great outdoors of the Okanagan, creating cherished memories. In his free time, Keith found joy in mountain biking, skiing, and sailing. One of his most fulfilling experiences was serving as a volunteer ski patroller. He loved being able to combine his passion for skiing with helping others.
Keith’s warm presence, caring nature, and willingness to lend a helping hand will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held in his honour at a later date.
May his memory bring comfort and peace to all who knew him. Forever in our hearts.
