Keith Knight Kiell

October 18, 1927 ~ February 4, 2022 (age 94)


Beloved husband of Evelyn (nee Smith), loving father of Don and Vivienne (nee Trew) and Allen Kiell, grandfather of Jeff and Kelin Kiell, and much loved uncle to many others.

Keith ran Kiell's grist mill from 1944 to 1968, grinding animal feed and welding farm equipment, until he took over grader operation for Pittsburg Township; after his father passed away in 1968.  Some of the local people came to know him as Grader Man.  The township counsel had a joke about Keith; that he could peel an orange with his grader.

Keith was a certified archery instructor, and the Women's archery coach at Queens University from 1969 to 1983.  He became known as Hey-u by the girls, and some of them still kept in touch over the years.

He was one of the original founders of the Circle Archery Club, a member of the Frontenac rifle and pistol club, and the Eastern Ontario two-way radio club.

He was an honorary member of the women's institute and attended meetings with his wife Evelyn, to make coffee and help out.

He loved country music and could be found at the Sunbury fir hall almost every Friday night, to make coffee and listen to the local music.

He was a wonderful cook; always baking and decorating cakes, and making Chinese style food for special occasions.

Keith Kiell was a kind hearted man, always willing to help anyone, he endeared himself to everyone he met.  is smile and laughter will be greatly missed.
