We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at East Coast Memorial
Beverly David Keddy passed after a hard fought battle on August 25, 2022 at the Victoria General hospital in Halifax.
Born in Kentville NS, February 23, 1964, he was predeceased by brother Ernest and parents Marion (Avery) and Cecil Keddy. He is survived by his wife Patricia and sisters Glenda Clark, and Gayle.
A valley boy at heart, he was a graduate of
Acadia University and longed to move back to the valley with his bride in their retirement. His wife fostered in him an appreciation for concerts and live entertainment, but not for wine. Afterall, he had his limits!
His early love of reading was inspired by his mother since his boyhood. From that stemmed his great passion of comics, books, movies, and later his love of research and writing of Nova Scotian true crime stories. His relentless research shed enlightenment into a 75 year old case in Halifax.
He was unassuming by nature, shy, some would say nerdy. His dry sense of humor was understood by only a few of his followers. His still waters ran deep for sure.
He was a 25 year member of Toast Masters and received accolades for his efforts in advanced levels of public speaking, thus leading to honing his skills in research, interviewing and writing. From his interviews with media personalities, he learned more about their crafts, which led to his Bev Boys Blog and researching NS true crime cases for Frank Magazine. During this time he worked as a computer IT analyst, however, writing about true crime cases was his passion.
Try as he might, he was not a craftsman with his hands. His strong interest in computers, his vast collection of books and movies all brought him immense pleasure.
With his honesty, hard work ethic and education he makes us proud to have known him .
Many say he and his bride Patricia showed deep care and love for each other. His friends and family from near and far have expressed their love and respect for him.
Many heartfelt thanks to Drs Al-Aqel, Pestell and Goth for their care and to the wonderful nursing staff at 5B at the Victoria General hospital for their kindness and compassion.
A Graveside service on Bev's honour will be held at Elmgrove Cemetery, Steam Mill, NS on Tuesday August 30th, 2022 at 11am.
