I am greatly shocked to have heard of Keith’s passing. I was his client for many years and always enjoyed our time together. He was a big fan of the Walking Dead show and we would have great chats. He was a wonderful person and the world is a little darker without him. My condolences to his family.

Osmond family : Just recently an old friend informed me of Keith’s passing. I was dumbfounded to say the least. I had known Keith all through elementary and high school. He was a grade ahead of me. I remember him driving to school in his 56 BelAir Chev when we attended Booth Memorial. He always had that passion for classic cars. Many times over the years when I was home on a holiday, I would drop by his garage to say hello and BS. He has left us way too soon. It was a pleasure to have known him all those years. RIP Keith! Take care………………. Glen and Tracy King/ Edmonton.

My wife and I are in Ontario until early March, else we would definitely be at the wake and funeral. It is with deep regret that we can’t show our respect in person. All the very best, Keith Osmond.

Leslie, Blair & Gavin,

Thinking of you and sending my deepest condolences to you and your family.

Leslie and family.
I was shocked to hear how quickly Keith had passed away since I learned of his illness. We were old friends and car club buddies. Whenever we met we usually shared a laugh while reminiscing about old mutual friends and fun times. Keith was a true car guy. I was lucky to be among the few that were able to view his vast collection of automotive paraphernalia and vintage parts.
Unfortunately, we are currently out of the country and will not be able to attend the services. Our deepest condolences on the passing of your husband and father and my old friend.
