Keith Briscoe

On June 18 my life changed forever. God has
chosen to take my caring, loving, generous,
funny, and loyal husband home to Glory.
He was sick for only 11 days before his
death. He died peacefully and without
pain while I was holding his hand. He has
left his broken earthly body behind and is
rejoicing, whole and healthy, with his Father
in heaven. Although this is not the plan we
had in mind, and I don’t understand the
timing or the reason, I know God is in control
and will hold me up and give me strength to
face each tomorrow until we are reunited in heaven.
Keith is survived by his wife of 27 years Marlene Kuehl, sisters-in-law
and brothers-in-law Karen and Aubrey Allen and Linda and Joe Bell,
several nieces and nephews, aunt and uncle Pearl and Rolly Jaekel,
many wonderful and close cousins, many dear and loyal friends,
sister Marian and brother Scott. He is predeceased by his parents
Reg and Colleen Briscoe of Golden Lake.
As per Keith’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. If you
wish to honour Keith’s memory, a donation to either St. Francis
Valley Healthcare Foundation in Barry’s Bay or The Ottawa Hospital
Foundation would be appreciated.
Thessalonians 4:13-14
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about
those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of
mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those
who have fallen asleep in him.
