July 3, 1942 - June 2, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

It is with great sadness that the family of Keith Robertson announce his passing. He passed peacefully in his sleep June 2, 2024. Words cannot describe how much we will miss him.

Keith was born July 3, 1942 to Margaret and Jim Robertson in Penticton BC. He is predeceased by his Brother Jamie Robertson.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Patricia of 58 years and his daughters Shay Robertson, Kelowna and Janice Fieldhouse, Victoria and his granddaughter Amber Fieldhouse who was the apple of his eye. He loved his niece Moyna. Also his Sister Nora (Bob) Dorian, Sidney BC. And nieces and nephews and other family members.

He will be missed by his dear friend Craig Campbell who was conscientious in visiting Keith at The Hamlets. It was always a good day for Keith as he looked forward to the chocolate.

Keith taught in the Cowichan School District for 30 years retiring in 2002. He taught PE, Math, and Computer Science. Because of his love for basketball he coached both girls and boys from grade eight to grade 12. Thank you to those basketball players who kept in contact with him over the years and visited at the Hamlets.

Keith graduated from UBC where he got his education degree and then later at University of Victoria for his Masters degree. He published a book "A Graphics Approach To Introduction The Pascal Programming".

Keith loved to bicycle and did many long bike rides. His favourite was in Hawaii. He loved to hike and climb with his dear friend Richard Hewitt, Vancouver. Richard has many fond memories of those hikes. As a family we went skiing, hiking and camping.

A huge thank you to the wonderful staff at the Hamlets in Duncan for respectfully supporting and taking good care of him for the past two years.

No service was requested. Instead of flowers a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Canada would be much appreciated.
