Keith MacAssey Geldert

Geldert, Keith MacAssey

August 30, 1931 – November 12, 2006


It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Keith after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He is sadly and lovingly missed by Murreen his wife of 53 years. Also left to mourn his loss: are sisters Beth (PEI), Beulah (AB), Jean (USA), Donalda (BC) and brother Angus (PEI), and many nieces and nephews.

Keith served for six months with the RCMP (Marine Div.), the RCAF (C.A.F.) from 1951 – 1983 and then with the DND. Comox from 1983 – 1996.

Heartfelt thanks are extended to Dr. Engman and Dr. Naaykens, the staff of the Chemo Unit, St. Joseph’s Hospital, all the nurses on the 2nd floor, Home Care and friends Anne and Mickey for all their help and kindness.

Please no flowers, but if so desired a donation in Keith’s memory to the Cancer Society, Courtenay would be appreciated.

It is Keith’s wish that there be no service and he leaves the following message for those who care:


When I come to the end of the road,

and the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not too long,

and not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once shared;

Miss me but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must make,

and each must go alone.

It’s all part of the Master’s plan;

a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart,

go to the friends we know,

and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me but let me go.
