Keith Fewster, of Calgary, AB, passed away in Canmore, AB, on Monday, September 12, 2022, at the age of 88 years.
Keith was born in Carman, MB, on December 13, 1933. He was raised in Sperling, MB, and moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1965. Keith graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in Commerce in 1954. He had a long, successful career with Gulf Canada (now Conoco Philips) from 1954 to 1993. Keith was married to Mary from 1957 until her death in 1991. He was then married to Christine in 1994 until her death in 2009.
Keith was a member of the Hillhurst United Church and Wild Rose United Church, as well as a founder of the Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta. He accomplished much throughout his life and was particularly proud of his graduate degree in German and his ARCT for piano. Keith loved music, travel, and the outdoors. He was a talented pianist, an enthusiastic cyclist, and a deeply spiritual person. Keith’s most memorable vacations were the years spent exploring Europe with his second wife, Christine. Keith’s favourite saying was the serenity prayer. He will be most remembered for his talkative nature and boundless curiosity.
