Dr. Keith MacLeod died Sunday, May 16, 2021, following a prolonged illness.

Son of the late James C. and Flora Macleod, he was predeceased by his brother Dr. Kenneth MacLeod (1993) (Phyllis). A graduate of Walkerville Collegiate and Queen’s University Medical School, Dr. MacLeod practiced in Windsor for 40 years as an obstetrician-gynecologist with his medical partner Dr. John Fry. He served as chief of ob-gyn at Hotel Dieu, Metropolitan and Windsor Regional Hospitals.

He is survived by his dear wife of 61 years, Lorraine, his children Jamie, Jennifer Branton (Tom) and David, as well as five well-loved grandchildren.
