1945 ~ 2013
Peacefully, surrounded by his loved ones at Pinawa Hospital, Keith took his final flight home. From diagnosis, in late February until his passing, he faced his fate with great courage and determination to provide for his loved ones until his end.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving and devoted wife Sheila; daughter Tammy (Richard); son Shawn (Charmaine); stepchildren: Melissa (Phil), Richard, and Aaron (Crystal); his grandchildren: Shayre, Richard, Myles, Amber, Anthony, Layton, Jarrod, Emma, Kate, Kimberly and Mykayla; sister Carol (Albert): and brothers: Clifford (Gwen), Michael (Julie), Robert (Donna), Paul (Trina). His in-laws, nieces, nephews and many friends will also sadly miss him.
He was predeceased by his brother Ian, parents Chief and Betty, and in-laws Sam and Isabelle Dunwoody.
Keith was an avid outdoorsman, and loved being on his trap line or simply out cutting wood. He especially loved the times he would spend with his boys (sons, nephews & friends). His love of nature and animals was displayed in everything about him, his home, his clothing, and the variety of pets he had over the years.
He was a very hard working man his entire life, with 28 years with the City Of Winnipeg Hydro, retiring in 2002. He went on to work at URL until his diagnosis of widespread cancer in February of this year.
In keeping with Keith’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service, but we ask that you remember him as you take in all the wonders of the great outdoors.
Special thanks to Dr. Bruneau and the staff at Pinawa Hospital, and the Palliative Care team.
