Wilfred Keith Hastings passed away peacefully on May 13, 2016 after a lengthy illness in Victoria, B.C. Keith is survived by his daughter, Rachel (Gary) and his sister, Evelyn. He was predeceased by his former wife and friend, Janet Hastings.
Keith was an accomplished Statistician and retired Professor of Mathematics. His career took him from the University of Toronto, University of Canterbury (New Zealand), Bell Labs (New Jersey) and the University of Victoria. He had many and ever-changing interests. In his younger days, he loved ballroom and square dancing. He enjoyed playing competitive chess, table tennis, bowling, playing classical guitar and working on his computer. He had a great sense of humour and wrote jokes and limericks for people. He would be laughing with whomever he shared his jokes, which would make you laugh even more.
Dad, I will miss our time together. I will always be your little girl.
At Keith’s request, there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice are appreciated.
