Keith MacCulloch was born in Montreal on May 1st, 1944 and died in Oakville Hospital on January 16th, 2021.
He was predeceased by his parents, Wilfred and Sally (Grant), brother, Grant (Frances) and step-mother, Hilda (Macdonald).
His family was always #1 and as such is lovingly remembered by his wife, Mary (O’Shea), daughters, Laura MacCulloch of Vancouver, BC; Tammy MacCulloch Bordt, Langley, BC, Tracy MacCulloch (Ron Campbell), Cambridge, ON, son, Bill Eldon (Carrie), Georgetown, ON; and sister, Brenda (Dave) McEvoy of Milton.
Loving Grandpa to Brad (Courtney), Kyle, Ali (Bryce), Nick (Kelsea), Casandra, Christopher, Courtney, Colby, Jordan and Peyton. Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephew in Canada and Australia.
From a young age, he was an accomplished and respected graphic artist, working on many large corporate accounts throughout his career in Quebec and Ontario. His passion for art was evident to all who knew him.
His larger-than-life personality and the ability to make everyone laugh with his antics and quick wit, made him a favourite amoung friends and family. At family gatherings, (even funerals) the cousins could soon be heard howling after he entered the room. Keith (The Birdman)had arrived!
Despite ribbing and heckling from the Leafs and Senators fans who surrounded him, he never deviated from his obsessive loyalty to his beloved “Habs”. His perfectionism was evident with all that he did such as working with his model trains, maintaining his lawn, setting up the Christmas village and all household chores.
Those closest to him will now miss his serenades of nonsensical sounds and made-up words, surely meant to entertain us but ‘not so mucn the early morning!! He was never happier than when concocting silly nick-names for his family and friends. But… was never more annoying, when as a card player, it took him forever to make his play.
