Bantle, Keith Philip December 29, 1972 –

August 13, 2018

It is with profound sadness that the family of Keith Bantle, announce his sudden and peaceful passing at home on Monday, August 13, 2018 at the age of 45 years. Keith will be forever remembered by his parents Henry and Mary Bantle, Brother and Sister In-Law, Tim and Lucy Bantle and his nephew and niece, Kyle and Sierra. He is also lovingly remembered by his Aunts, Uncles and Cousins; and close friends, in particular Allan Lane, who was like family to Keith. Keith was predeceased by his Grandparents: Ferdinand and Elizabeth Bantle; Karl and Wanda Bilinski. Keith was born and raised in Claresholm on December 29, 1972. He loved his sports and had a special spot for camping and fishing with family. He was the ultimate flames fan – Nothing came between Keith and Hockey Night in Canada. Keith’s Saskatchewan Roughriders and WWE wrestling were always in the background. Keith’s passing will leave a huge void in all the lives he touched. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Christ the King, Catholic Church (344-50 Avenue West, Claresholm AB) on Saturday, August 18th at 11:00am. A Prayer Service will be held on Friday August 17, 2018 at 7:00pm at Christ the King, Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, if desired donations in Keith’s memory may be made directly to the Calgary Flames Foundation, 555 Saddledome Rise SE, Calgary, AB T2G 2W1.

Keith, you will forever be missed – Rest in Peace.
