Keith Oswald, of West Grey, passed away suddenly in London, Ont. on Thursday, December 24, 2020. He was 57.
Born in Sunderland, England on December 14, 1963 to Bryan and Irene (nee Smith) Oswald.
Survived by loving spouse Marian Ratcliffe of West Grey, 32 years of happy marriage and 38 years as best friends. Dear son of Bryan and Irene Oswald of Kanata, Ontario. Dear brother of Peter (Teresa) Oswald of Nepean and their children Rebecca and Jacob. Son-in-law of John Ratcliffe of Scarborough. Fondly remembered by his brothers-in-law Doug Ratcliffe of Kitchener, Alan (Deb DaCosta) Ratcliffe of Vanessa, Norman (Tracey) Ratcliffe of Keswick and their families. Predeceased by his mother-in-law Roberta Ratcliffe.
He will be dearly missed by his friends and by coworkers at Chapman's Ice Cream. We would like to thank the Chapman's family for all the support they offered Keith during his illness.
Keith enjoyed living out in the country with the dark skies, where he could pursue his love of amateur astronomy. He was a member of the Bluewater Astronomical Society.
To honour his wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be a private family Celebration of Life at a later date when it is safe to do so.
In recognition of the excellent care and services provided to Keith during his illness memorial donations to the London Health Sciences Foundation - Cancer Program would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
