KEEFE, Brian  -  It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Brian on Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 32 years of age.

Cherished fiancé to Danielle Gelineau.

Loving son to Stephen and Gloria (nee: Parks) Keefe.

Adored brother to Adrienne (Jason) DeGroat and Melanie (Andrew) Brotherhood.

Doting Uncle to Addisyn, Dylan, and Claire.

Loving son-in-law to Raymond and Marie-Anne (nee: Labelle) Gelineau, brother-in-law Chantal (Tony) Tripodi, and uncle to Claire, Eric, and Marc.

Brian will be deeply missed by his loving cousins, aunts and uncles; Cottage Family; Love Monsters; Brock Crew; SBM Friends, colleagues and friends from OSEG, MediaCom, and Rogers; and the many other people who had the honour of knowing him.

Brian was fiercely loyal to his family and friends, gave the best hugs, and would never hesitate to show those in his life how much he loved them.

Brian could fill up a room with the sound of his deep and pure laughter and made it his life's mission to make Danielle laugh every day (and succeeded with ease).

His fiancée and siblings miss him dearly, cherish the moments that they have shared with Brian in his short 32 years, and are committed to honouring him every day.

Visitation will be held at the McEachnie Funeral Home, Ajax, on Monday, September 27th from 4-8 p.m. Due to COVID restrictions, registration to attend visitation is recommended. Space is limited.  A Private Family Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, September 28th at 3 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family is recommending the following two causes, and is greatly appreciative of your support.

To the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Brian's Little A-Frame: Brian dreamed of building an off-grid A-Frame Cabin for himself and his fiancée Danielle.

His family is committed to making his dream a reality and having this space as somewhere to share memories of Brian.
