Obituary for Grennville Keith Ayres

AYRES, Grennville (Keith)

On January 28th we said goodbye to a man loved beyond words, Grennville (Keith) Ayres.  He was so many things to so many people.  He was a loving husband, father and grandfather.  He was a social butterfly who loved people.  He was headstrong and was not afraid to speak his mind.  He had an infectious smile and a mischievous sense of humour.  Keith worked for Loblaws and Your Independent Grocer for many years.  He was a sports enthusiast, a coach, an avid golfer, a drinking buddy, a great friend, and he loved his Cleveland Browns!

He is predeceased by his father James Ayres, his mother Reba Ayres (Peterson).  Predeceased by this sisters Gwendolyn, Patricia, Glenda and his brother Jim.  He leaves behind his living sisters Carol and Chris. Loving partner to Lorie Dodge for 45 years.  Loving father to Grant Ayres (Nathalie), Lesley Gibson (Mike), Jamie Brush and Kevin Ayres.  Loving grandfather to Gabrielle, Stephanie, James, Cailea, Ava, Marieve, Faith, Luke and Brielle. Loving owner and best friend to his dog Grenny.

Special thanks to Dr. Paul Wilkins, Tina & Tiffany and the BGH staff for their caring and compassion in his final weeks and days.

Flowers are gratefully declined but donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Sick Kids Hospital are appreciated.

Arrangements entrusted to Steele Funeral Home, Belleville (613-968-2273)
