Beloved partner, husband, and soulmate of Janet (nee Madsen). Cherished brother to Alan (Vera) and David (Jocelyn). Proud uncle to Alan, Angela (John), Christopher (Paula), Helena (Andrew), Alicia (Shawn), and Brittany (Evan), as well as many grandnieces and grandnephews.

Predeceased by his parents Herbert and Adeline Altass, brother Brian and sister-in-law Patricia, and in-laws Axel and Alice Madsen.
Keith was a very quiet, kind, and caring man. He was well respected by all who knew him. He was always willing to help others.
Keith was born in Hull, England and emigrated to Prince Edward Island in 1967. In 1969 he and Janet met, and the rest is history. For a few years Keith could be seen driving the London Double Deck bus through the streets of Charlottetown and out on the North Shore.
After a few years at the Georgetown Shipyard, Keith established his own business Island Liferafts Inc. He was well known in the marine industry for his contribution to lifesaving at sea. He and Janet were not only partners in life but also in business. They worked tirelessly side by side and also started Island Canvas & Textiles. He earned a reputation for making top quality industrial tarpaulins for the trucking and agriculture sectors.
Keith was very entrepreneurial in setting up new types of businesses on Prince Edward Island. He and his brother David began manufacturing braided rope for the fishing industry.
Keith’s entrepreneurial spirit was also evident when he took it upon himself to start a project for the tourism industry – a replica pirate ship the “Hispaniola” from the story Treasure Island to carry twenty-five passengers. His intent was to take children to an island where they would be met by Ben Gunn, a pirate, and dig for gold coins.
In later years, Keith and Janet decided to build a new home where they enjoyed many happy years together.
There will be no visitation or funeral by personal request. A Celebration of Life and interment in Sherwood Cemetery will be announced at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made directly to the PEI Humane Society or a charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to MacLean Funeral Home Swan Chapel. Online condolences may be made at www.macleanfh.com

Kay died on January 23, 2024 at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Born in Guelph, Ontario, to loving parents Earl and Anna Sault on July 24, 1937. Raised in Ormstown, Quebec, Kay was a Registered Nurse who trained at Montreal General Hospital and went on to receive a diploma in public health nursing from the University of Western Ontario. Kay met Doug, her husband of fifty-nine years at Albert College, and following their marriage in 1961 moved to Prince Edward Island where they made a home and raised a family. Kay was a wonderful mother, sympathetic, imaginative, and always there.
Kay had a talent for friendship and many circles of friends: United Church Women, neighbourhood ladies, bridge clubs, book clubs, sorority, and the birthday bunch. She was well-known for her warm smile and sympathetic ear. Kay believed in the importance of community, whether it was canvassing for charities, volunteering with the school milk programme, tutoring kids, or helping with hospice.
Kay is predeceased by her husband, Doug, and survived by children Heather Mathis (Charles) of Toronto, Jim (Dawn) of Bedford, N.S., and John (Linda Berko) of Charlottetown; grandson Ben (Kathryn) of Halifax; sisters Fran Sault and Mary Woodside (Ken) of Guelph; niece Jen (Ben), and nephew Jon (Yuki).

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Audrey Jean Wigginton (nee Bevan) on Friday, January 19, 2024 at the age of 81. Audrey was born and raised in Parkdale to Roy and Kay Bevan. In 1959, she met and later married the man of her dreams, Merrill Wigginton, and they shared 59 wonderful, happy years together. In 1974, she graduated with a degree in Sociology from the University of Prince Edward Island. Audrey was a caring and loving mother to Kevin Wigginton (Stephanie) and Karla Gimby (Andrew). She was her children’s biggest cheerleader and greatest supporter. She never missed a swim meet and was always quick with a study snack to feed their minds. Her greatest pride and ultimate joy, however, were her grandchildren - Lorne and Rachel Wigginton, and Katelyn and Cole Gimby. Audrey amazingly kept track of each and every test, sporting event, activity and travel. She never missed wishing good luck or safe travels as her four grandchildren went about setting the world on fire. Audrey is survived by her sister, Shirley Bevan, and brothers Hal Bevan (Janet), Roger Bevan (Susan) and Wayne Bevan (Geraldine) and many nieces and nephews. Audrey was active in her community and church and will be greatly missed by her neighbours and many friends.
