Obituary of Keith Wile

Keith Roswell Wile 82, Petite Riviere passed away September 25, 2004 in South Shore Regional Hospital. Born March 26, 1922 in Petite Riviere, he was the son of the late Wilbur and Ethel (Wagner) Wile. Keith was a wireless operator in the U.S. Merchant Marines during WWII and later the D.N.D at Stadacona and the Canadian Coast Guard. He was also a meteorologist for D.O.T in the Arctic and various radio ranges in the Atlantic Provinces. He then ran his own electrical business and “retired” by buying a 5-ton truck and making weekly trips to the U.S. However his most important job was always that of devoted husband and loving father. Survived by his wife of 60 years, Pauline, daughter Jane (Clayton), sons Bruce (Marcia), Scott (Michelle); grandchildren, Mark (Sheila), Jay Keith (Carrie), Amy (Paul), Ben (Lynn), Dan (Tanya) and Cory; 8 great-grandchildren; brother Murton (Shirley); 4 nieces, cousin Vera Joudrey and several others throughout N.S. and the U.S. He was predeceased by a brother in infancy and a great-grandson. In accordance with his wishes cremation has taken place and his ashes are to be scattered on his beloved “Hill”. Dad had a great appreciation of the outdoors so if anyone wishes to do something in his memory, please just go for a walk in the woods and remember.
