It is with extreme hurt and sadness that we announce the passing of a beautiful man, partner, father, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend, Keith Stabeck.
Keith was born on Aug. 22, 1956, in Red Deer Alta. He grew up in Kamloops, graduated from Norkam Senior Secondary school in 1974 and started his adult working career working for Simpson Sears Canada in Kamloops delivering furniture. He then worked for the Kamloops Oil Refinery (Esso), Trans Mountain Pipeline and the Raleigh Water District.
Something everyone will remember about Keith and we were all endeared to it, was that “spring” in his step and that infectious smile on his face at work, at home and at play. He always wanted to do his very best in life with his family and friends and coworkers and he showed it.
He will be remembered dearly as a gentle, kind, humble, approachable, humorous and solidly the most generous spirit you could ever meet. His interests included the outdoors, camping, sledding, ATVs and of course having a “Bud” and some laughs with his friends and family.
He leaves behind to mourn his passing, his partner in life Wendy (Turner), children, Brad and Sarina, brothers, Barry (Lorna) and Gavin (Sarina) and his loving extended family. He was predeceased by his parents Ovar and Dorothy Stabeck.
A celebration of this man’s wonderful life will occur at 547 Lynwood Avenue in Kamloops on Sept. 15 between 1 and 4 p.m. for family and friends to reunite and remember the Keith we all knew and loved.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests a donation be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).
