It is with a heavy heart and extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Keith Elmer Whalley on March 17th, 2021. The Whalley family has lost a legend; a giant of a man that left an everlasting mark.
Our motto at 43 Earls Lake Road was “Together we are strong”. More recently we added “May we be happy, may we be well, may we be loved.”
