Keith was born in Moose Jaw, SK on December 26th, 1955 to his parents, Gerald and Doris Hall. He was raised on the family farm southwest of Mortlach and grew up with 2 older sisters, Charlene and Donna.
Keith’s first love was farming and he started with 3 quarters of land in 1973 at the age of 17. He married Lorrie (Gardner) on October 3rd, 1981, moving into the family farm house and raising 3 boys: Chad, Tyler and Nick. He remained on the farm, farming the land for 49 years. The last couple of years were a struggle but he was still able to get into the sprayer or tractor to work his share. One of his proudest accomplishments was receiving the Century Family Farm Award in 2009. Keith’s sons continue the tradition of farming the original land continuously for 118 years.
Throughout his younger years Keith enjoyed many sports, including softball with the Mortlach Jets, playing 2nd base for many years. He also grew up playing hockey and in the later years, he enjoyed being the referee for the Mortlach senior hockey team. He enjoyed many curling events with friends and family, becoming a curling coach for his sons and other students at the Mortlach School.
Keith enjoyed watching sports as well, and of course all of his son’s events and recently the grandchildren’s events. He held Warrior season tickets for 40 years. He cheered for the Blue Jays and the Montreal Canadiens. Recently he enjoyed watching his nephew, Rhett Gardner, play hockey with the Texas Stars and Dallas Stars.
Over the years he was part of many community organizations, the local Sask Wheat Pool Committee for 20 years, and the local Recreation Board for over 30 years, and the local Kinsmen Club for 40 years. During his Kinsmen years, he received his Life Membership with the organisation and sat on many local and provincial committees. Keith and Lorrie also chaired Telemiracle 32 in 2008, supported by a wonderful committee.
Throughout the many years, as well as several committees and events, Keith and Lorrie accumulated so many close friends. Thanks to all of Keith’s wonderful friends and family for giving them a life of enjoyment and gratitude.
