Keith Robert McDonald
June 18, 1932 – June 29, 2019
Keith Robert McDonald was born on June 18, 1932 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC, the youngest of seven to Peter Duncan and Zita Irene McDonald. The last of “The McDonald Boys”, Keith passed away after a short illness at the RIH on June 29, 2019. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 63 years Orvalla, daughter Heather (Ron), son Scott (Laura), daughter Holly (Paul), and son Thor (Darla), as well as grandchildren Tessa, Emily, Spencer (Haleigh), Kerith, Hannah and Odin, and many nieces and nephews and their families.
A dedicated employee, Keith worked for the CNR as a locomotive engineer for 35 years, retiring in 1987.
A devoted husband and father, when Keith was not at work, he always made spending time with his family a priority.
Dad’s favorite past time was camping, fishing and hunting with his family, friends and always with his four legged buddy by his side.
Everyone will always remember Keith for sharing his entertaining stories, humorous sayings and his uncontrollable laughter and delight in stories told by others.
Keith’s family would like to express their appreciation to the doctors and nurses at RIH with the compassionate care given to Keith and his family throughout this difficult time.
Many thanks to Drake Cremation and Funeral Services for their personal attentiveness to our family.
