William Keith Studer 1958 — 2019

William Keith Studer

MAY 16, 1958 – JAN 1, 2019

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Keith in Kamloops on January 1, 2019 from pneumonia.  Keith was a devoted son, father, husband, sibling, uncle, and the best friend you could hope to have.  Keith loved to build and was a highly skilled and respected Senior Superintendent at EllisDon Construction where he worked for over 30 years.  You don’t have to drive far in Calgary to find a project Keith worked on.  Keith loved to travel – preferably if golf was involved.  He was an amazing cook, and many wonderful meals were shared with family and friends.  Keith built a beautiful log home on Shuswap Lake, his “happy place”, where he loved to sit on his deck looking at the lake sparkling through the trees and boating with his family and friends.

Keith is lovingly remembered by his children, Connor and Nicole, his Mom, Marjorie, his wife Cindy, his siblings, Cheri, Teresa, Dave and Mark, his nieces and nephews Leah (Matt), Serena, Kyle, Mackenzie, Dustin, Kirstie, Samantha and so many wonderful friends.  Keith was predeceased by his Dad, Clifford.

A Celebration of Keith’s Life will be held on January 26th at 1:00 p.m. at the Blue Devil Golf Course located at 2300 – 194 Avenue S.E. Calgary, Alberta.  If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Alberta Children’s Hospital.  There will be a celebration of life for Keith in Kamloops this spring, date and time will be announced.

    My heart and prayers go out to Keith’s family..❤️ Even though it has been many years since I’ve seen my cousin, I’ll always have a wonderful memory of his tenderness and kindness to me when I was little at Grandma and Grandpa Holmberg’s in Shanavon, SK. He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. ❤️
