KEY, Gerald 'Gerry' - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gerald (Gerry) William Key on January 13, 2021 at the age of 77. 

Predeceased by his parents Walt and Ethel (Thompson) Key.

He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years Carol Key (nee Weston) his son Jeff (Olga) Key and his daughter Lisa (Rick) Tessier.

He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Alex Tessier, Sam Tessier and Jarrot Key.

He also leaves behind his brothers Doug (Gail) Key, Robert Key, and David Key. 

Gerry was a kid at heart and when he wasn’t working, he was building trains, planes and automobiles.

Gerry was very proud to have been able to carry on the family business started by his grandfather in 1921, W.R. Key Limited, until he retired in 2005.

He was our family, our friend and our mentor. 

Thank you to the staff at Douglas Crossing for taking such good care of him and thank you Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for all that you do.

There will be a celebration of life in the future.
