Always a Silver Lining (123)

This is a book about Keith Culliton. He is an important figure here in Stratford where I live. He just recently retired from politics last year and he has been missed on the Stratford City Council.

Keith Culliton founded a business called The Culliton Brothers here is in Stratford. It ran under its current name for quite a few decades.

Keith is from humble beginnings. He was born in North Easthope and lived much of his childhood on the farm. He was born just around the Great Depression. So, he knew about tough times very well. But he was a survived and he thrived at all times. And the same holds for his life.

He was always outspoken so it was easy for him to become a public figure. He enjoyed his years on the City Council and did a lot of great things.

He is always a joy to see in church with his wife of many years. He is one of those guys that you love to see and that is so much a part of Stratford culture.

It is great that this memoir was written and published while Keith is still alive. Most memoirs were written after a person passes away. But Diane, Keith’s daughter, had the wisdom to write it before his father died. He even autographed the copy of the book that I borrowed from the library. What a honor to see his signature!
