On behalf of the family, we announce the passing of Keith McDougall. Keith passed away at the Killam Health Centre on June 6, 2023 at the age of 86 years.
On July 31, 1959, Keith married Evelyn Mae Sprague of Strome and had two children.
Keith is survived by his wife, Evelyn, daughter Cheryl (Darrin) Holben, grandchildren Logan and Raegan Holben (Joel Coutts), as well as many other family and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Earl and Marj McDougall, son Allen McDougall, sister Arlene Wollman, niece Terry Wollman and nephew Doug Wollman, and Clint and Dorothy Sprague.
Keith never moved from the family farm. He was born on the farm and resided there his whole life. If you looked up “farming” in the dictionary you would find the name “Keith McDougall”. He loved spending time with family and friends. Every Sunday was family day, ensuring fun and memories were made. Keith truly enjoyed camping and the odd fishing excursion. He was an avid sportsman who played baseball, golfing, skiing, curling and bowling. He loved watching sports such as baseball and hockey. He belonged to the Lion’s Club, and loved helping family and neighbors and also assisted with many community projects. He liked to travel, which included Florida, Mexico, California, Arizona, Vancouver Expo, cruise to Alaska and many trips to Fairmont, British Columbia. Although he had hobbies and enjoyed adventures, he always looked forward to returning to the farm.
He will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by all his family and friends.
Funeral service for Keith will be held on June 14, 2023 at the Strome Community Hall (51 Ave - 53 Street) at 2:00 pm. Following the service, you are welcome for a time of fellowship and refreshments.
