Keith Norman Dunk
December 8, 2021
DUNK, Keith Norman - Unexpectedly at his residence on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, in his 75th year. Beloved husband of Linda Dunk for 46 years. Loving father of Doug Dunk and his wife Jennifer. Dear brother of Jack Dunk and Paul (Marilyn) Dunk and brother-in-law of Connie (Peter) Flanagan, Tom (Linda) Kirkham, Mike Young, John Kirkham and Norman (Nora) Kirkham. Keith is lovingly remembered by his nieces, nephews and many dear friends. Predeceased by his brothers Roy Dunk and Reg Dunk, and sister-in-law Janet Young.
In Keith’s younger years, he was on the executive for the Guelph Men’s Recreational Slo-Pitch League. He was very involved with his son’s activities – coaching from the bench and calling “Keep your head up Doug!”. Keith and Linda moved from Cedarville to Mount Forest in 2014. For the past many years, Keith has been a dedicated and avid volunteer in the community: Secretary of the Mount Forest Bowling Club 55, driver for Cancer Patient Services, member of the Louise Marshall Hospital Auxiliary (and gift shop volunteer), and a member of the Mount Forest Legion, Branch 134.
Private arrangements entrusted to the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest. Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Keith are asked to consider Cancer Patient Services or the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation.
So very sorry for your unexpected loss. You were so lucky to have shared your life with such an exceptional man for so many years. Keith was one of my cancer drivers years ago and he made a very good impression. Compassionate and caring. I’m sure he and Bert are catching up on old times. Take care.— Tracy burke, December 28, 2021
