Keith was born on October 10,1971 in Saint John, New Brunswick to Bill and Sandi Black. He moved
with his family to Tumbler Ridge, BC at the age of twelve. This is where he spent his teenage and
early adult years. Keith loved to play hockey, he loved the outdoors, camping and boating.  He
always spoke so fondly of his time at “The Camp” with his family in New Brunswick. It was in TR
where his love for mining began. When the mines in TR closed, Keith moved to Sylvan Lake AB
in 1999. He had a career change and started into a plumbing apprenticeship. In 2001 Keith and
his family moved to Fort McMurray, AB to pursue his career and love of mining. He started at
Suncor as an operator. With his strong work ethic, personality and dedication he advanced to
be Superintendent of Mining Operations at Albian.

Keith’s family began in January of 2000 when his first son Dillon was born to him and his then
wife Roxanne Way. After their move to Fort Mac two more children were to be a part of their
growing family. Alektra was born March of 2003 and Ashton was born February of 2005. Keith’s
life continued to change and grow.

In March 2010 Keith and Breanne met in Mexico at his sister’s wedding. They became best
friends, and they knew very quickly they wanted to spend their lives together. They married on
September 5th, 2013, In beautiful Juneau, Alaska. In April of 2015 Keith and Breanne welcomed
their bundle of joy, Ruby into the family. Keith was a generous, loyal man with great morals. He
had many accomplishments in his life, but his greatest accomplishment was his family! He will
be missed by all.
