ALLISON, Keith Alexander
July 29, 1945 – November 25, 2017
Keith Allison passed away suddenly but peacefully in Okotoks AB on November 25, 2017 at the age of 72, with his wife Louise by his side. Keith will be remembered for his many talents. His dedication to his business and his work ethics earned him the reputation of a highly respected businessman. He loved to work on "his garden" in the produce aisle of his store and spent hours making sure everything was perfect. Keith loved music and played his trumpet professionally for many years. He started "Keith and the Tornadoes" while still a teenager and played with several groups before joining the Alex Fraser Combo. Many people remember dancing to their music at Kenosee Gardens. He also played trombone, drums, guitar, and amazed audiences by playing two trumpets at the same time, and in harmony! Keith loved to tell stories. He always had a story ready for any customer that came through the least one! He loved meeting new people and made sure that everyone who came through the door was treated like an old friend. He especially loved to give babies their very first soft ice cream cone just to see the look of surprise on their little faces. Keith was known for his compassion and generosity. He believed in helping everyone who walked through Allison's front door to have the very best time possible at Kenosee. Newcomers to the store left as new friends. He told everyone if they had any problems during their visit to the park that they just needed to call him and he would do what he could to solve the problem. People could sense his kindness and opened up to him like a trusted friend. With his calm voice and manner he could settle many volatile situations. Keith touched many lives as he brought thousands of employees together to work at the lake over the years. He will be remembered by them for his sense of humour and the pranks he loved to play on all. Keith was born on July 29, 1945 in Wawota, SK to Harry and Edna Allison. He is survived by his loving wife, Louise; daughter Holly (Gerard) Kay; sons Robert (Lisa) Allison and Ryan (Holly) Allison; stepchildren Carissa (Brent) Sanders and Geoffrey Korfman; grandchildren Alexandria, Stephanie and Katherine Kay, Jayden Allison, Ella Allison, Callin and Kristopher Faber; twin sisters Beth Moss and Lynne Wheeldon; numerous nieces and nephews; and many loving friends. As per Keith's wishes there will be no funeral. The family is planning a Memorial Service at a later date. Family and friends are invited to visit to leave condolences. Arrangements in care of Snodgrass Funeral Homes - Okotoks.
