Obituary for D. "Keith" Welbourn
WELBOURN, D. Keith
He left as quietly as he lived, under the great care of The Carpenter Hospice on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the age of 85.
Loving husband of Margaret (nee Anderson) for 61 years. Cherished father of the late Gavin Welbourn (2009) (Tamara Welbourn), Rona Williams (Greg Minogue), and Leanne Welbourn. Proud grandfather of Rebecca Welbourn, Heather Williams (Ryan Neilson) and Mark Williams.
Born in Withernsea, England and came to Canada in 1957, by trade a skilled draughtsman. He was a kind soul with a clever wit, caring and meticulous by nature. Continually inquisitive, forever learning, and beautifully organized, he was a man to think up projects and get things done. After serving in the RAF, he loved all things aviation and has now joined Gavin on their ultimate flight plan.
Special thank you to the staff, nurses and doctors at The Carpenter Hospice for the exceptional care provided. As per Keith’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will be held at a later date.
If desired, donations in Keith’s memory to The Carpenter Hospice would be sincerely appreciated by the family, and can be sent either to The Carpenter Hospice or through Smith's Funeral Homes website.
