Obituary for Keith Joseph Taccone

Taccone, Keith Joseph

It is with great sadness we share the sudden passing of Keith Taccone in his 41st year on October 2, 2020. Born in Mississauga and raised in Caledon, Keith went to Robert F. Hall and was a master electrician by trade.

As a child Keith lit up the room with his head of golden curls and bright smile. He loved to laugh and be with family. He was a strong, vibrant man with a passion for carpentry, a talent for art and enjoyed being in nature.

Keith worked as a master electrician and a construction manager with Govan Brown & Associates, most recently working on the new CIBC Square development. He took great pride in the work he did with many of Toronto’s landmark buildings. From hospitals, malls and office towers, there are few buildings he didn’t have intimate knowledge of.

Keith is survived by his loving parents Ed and Sandra, his sister Sonya (Chris), brother Edward (Julie), nephew Isaac, nieces Athena (Sebastian), Mattea and Nella and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
To our precious family members and friends,

As most of you know, our beautiful son Keith passed away on October 2nd. We want to thank you for the outpouring of love and support we have received during this enormously difficult time. We ask for your continued support through love and prayer.
Due to Covid we are keeping funeral arrangements to immediate family only. When it is safe, we will have a Celebration of Life with all family, friends, and coworkers. We, do not intend to leave anyone out, we want to see you all and have the opportunity to share the best years of our son's short life. Thank you for understanding our much, needed time to heal.

With much love,
Ed, Sandra, Sonya and Chris, Edward and Julie, our grandchildren Athena and Sebastian, Isaac, Mattea and Nella.
A Private Service will be held with family on Thursday.
A Celebration of Life will be held when it is safe to do so.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for Memorial donations be made to SickKids Foundation.

A tree will be planted in memory of Keith in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The next annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at

Keith was a wonderful employee who understood the meaning of the word "team." He was always more focused on the good of the company and the project than on his own benefit. He made many great contributions to the company and helped it move forward in numerous ways. His work here will not soon be forgotten.
Please accept our sincere condolences for your family. Keith was a remarkable man and everyone at GBA is better for having known him. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, they were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him.
We have changed the name of the Site Managers golf tournament to the “Taccone Classic” to honor Keith as a friend and great golfer.

All of us here at Govan Brown

When Mary and I got the news, we were driving back from South Carolina. We did not want to believe it. Mary just kept crying and I just kept trying to not cry as I just stared at the road ahead. Of course, I did cry. Inside I was filled with confusion and pain. We just drove silently for 500 or so more miles. I thought about driving through the border at any cost. I really did. I became so angry. Mary and I were torn by the thought of not being able to be with the family. Keith was so much more to us than our cousin's son. He always called us Uncle Frank and Aunt Mary. We love him so much, and we know that he loves us. Yes! Present tense! Life does not end. Ultimate reality is in God's Heaven, not on Earth. We always looked forward to coming up to Canada and bringing Mary's famous pizza bread for Keith. One time, he ate the whole thing and was not feeling so well the next morning. Sometimes there are no words. These are the words. We love him with all of our hearts! We love Ed and Sandra with all of our hearts! As everyone knows, Keith and our son Nick were very, very close. More like brothers than second cousins. Perhaps Keith was to our son, the brother that he never had. It was very hard on Nick. The loss of Keith is a tremendous loss to us all. A void now exists in all of us who love him so much. A void that can only be healed with time, and with our eventual reunification with him in eternity. FAITH, HOPE and LOVE! The essence of Christianity. I still cry when I am alone thinking about Keith. I always will. But that is a good thing. If I did not cry, than my heart would not be beating.

Words cannot express any one memory of you...every word reminds me that no one way of putting it gets it "right." It reminds me of how much is missing. And yet, this gives me comfort to know that each and every memory of you can never be exhausted.

What I remember most about you is your smile, and the way that you would get up and greet us at the door even in the middle of eating dinner. I remember how sweet you were with the kittens that our shared cat had, the way you held them in your giant Taccone hands, and I laughed about it...and then you made some joke that was as equally funny as it deserved a slap upside the head. There was the time you and Ed were making faces to look like a goat, and I laughed so hard I cried. I will always appreciate how you put seriousness aside to lighten the mood.

And then you'd surprise me every so often too, like that time I mentioned something about growing old and wrinkled...and how that wasn't something to look forward to. And I'm pretty sure you were holding one of the cats in your arms as you replied that I shouldn't care about that because wrinkles “add character.”

And then there was that one act I can never forget. The act I will forever owe you everything for, our whole family does, it was the time you dove into the pool with the cover still on it to save my two-year-old brother from drowning. I don't know what prompted you to look out the door at that very moment, but if you hadn't, my brother wouldn't be here today. You will always be a hero to us. See you on the flipside, Keith, and say hi to Papone and Grandma for me.

To all Keith's family and friends: My sincere condolences go out to you. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to lose someone you love and care about too soon. I hope for everyone to take comfort knowing Keith lives on in all of us, and in all the ways he has touched so many lives.

- Love always, Ines
