Keith Arthur Obituary

Keith Gordon Arthur passed away on December 7th, 2023 with his wife of nearly 50 years by his side at Minnedosa Health Centre.  Keith was born in Winnipeg on January 5, 1953 and raised on a farm south of Gladstone (Maryfield District) with his parents Henry, Sarah and sister Faye. 

After graduating high school he went to Winnipeg where he met Kathleen Marchant.  Keith and Kathy were married August 24, 1974, then moved back to the family farm where they raised three children: Thomasina, Deanna, and Andrew.

Keith was a trail blazer – he was first to grow potatoes in the Municipality and did that while raising his family.  He was also instrumental in bringing natural gas to Gladstone and rural areas.  He went back to school to become a project manager and worked in this field for the next 20 years all over Canada.  In 2022 Keith and Kathy retired to Minnedosa to be closer to family. 

Predeceased by his parents (Henry and Sarah), father in law (Tommy Marchant), many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Left to mourn his passing are his wife Kathy, sister Faye, daughters Thomasina (Gerald) and Deanna; son Andrew (Kim); grandchildren Emma (Nick), Hayden (Cassie), Liam and Colt; mother in law Lorraine (Brian) Cooper; brother in law Dwight (Nancy) and Kirk (Heather), nieces and nephews Tommy (Laura), Lindsay (Curtis), Cally (Christopher), Brody, MacKenzie (Christopher); and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

All Keith wanted was a little more time in his shop; one could only imagine what he is working on now. 

The family would like to thank Dr. Wiebe at Beautiful Plains Clinic, and Dr. Onyshko and Staff at the Minnedosa Health Centre, Dr. Armstrong at Seven Oakes Hospital as well as Clarke’s Funeral Home for all their excellent care. 

There will be no funeral as per Keith’s wishes.
