It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Edward “Peachy” Keen, on Wednesday May 6th, 2020. Ed retired as a Battalion Chief with the Vancouver Fire Department, after 33 years of service and thus dedicated his entire professional life to saving lives and helping others. This was his nature, a giving soul.
Ed is predeceased by his wife Dorothy (2016) and is survived by three sons, Mark, Brett and Craig; as well as daughters in-law Terry and Lydia; and grandsons, Mathew, Jordan, and Sam.
He is also survived by his sisters Audrey & Shirley.
Ed will be dearly missed by his family and extended network of friends. He will be fondly remembered as a dedicated husband and father, kind and chivalrous to the end.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Ed’s honour at 11:00 am on June 27th, 2020 at Yates Funeral Chapel, 1000 Allsbrook Road in Parksville. In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Ed’s memory by making a donation in his name to the BC SPCA Parksville-Qualicum Beach & District Branch, 1565 Alberni Highway, Parksville, BC V9P 2H3.
