Keith Wrigglesworth

Obituary of Keith Clarke Wrigglesworth

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Keith Clarke Wrigglesworth, at Victoria Hospital, in his 79th year.  Keith was born July 7th, 1944, in Shelburne, Ontario and passed away peacefully on August 3rd, 2023, in London, Ontario.

Keith will be greatly missed by his loving wife and partner in crime, Levenia, his much-loved children, Michelle (Eric), Ken, Ray, his cherished grandchildren, Carter, Kelsey, Colin, Carley, Tyson, Cooper and his precious great grand babies, Zoe and Benjamin.  Predeceased by good friend and brother-in-law, John, and will be deeply missed by his dear sister-in-law Gladys and niece Tammy (Shawn).

A man among men, and a true gentle giant.  Keith’s work ethic was unrivalled. He spent 42 years delivering goods as a long-haul truck driver. He was well loved and well respected amongst his peers. Keith would bring joy by telling stories from his travels, especially the best places to eat and where to get his favourite dessert, pies!! He truly loved pies, just not pecan.  His favourite activity was to add sound effects to his wife’s daily life.  He just loved to make everyone laugh and has left us with so many memories to do just that.  His grandkids will forever remember him sneaking them all the various treats and snacks without Grandma knowing.

Keith valiantly battled various health problems over the years but maintained his dignity and independent spirit until the end. 

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.  All these things are gone forever.”—Revelation 21:4

As were Keith’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of life will take place at a later date.
