Clinton Charles Keller

Mr. Clinton Charles Keller passed away on Jan. 3, 2011, at the age of 94.

Clint is survived by one sister, Geraldine Diruzzo of Portland, Oregon. He will also be missed by nieces Heather (Brendan) Allen, Terry (Bob) Webster, and Wendy Munden, and nephews Wayne (Eva) Keller, Marvin (Nancy) Keller, Jim Fea, Malcolm Fea, and Charlie (Lois) Keller and many great nieces and nephews.

Clint was predeceased by parents Charles and Hallie, sisters Marjorie, Martha, Carol, and Dorothy, and brothers Troy and Ralph.

Clint was born in the Keller farmhouse in Squam Bay, on Feb. 24, 1916. He remained on the farm until his health began to fail in his late eighties.

In his younger days Clint did some trapping, polemaking, and prospecting around Adams Lake; but home was always the farm in Squam Bay.

Clint loved his cows and had a green thumb. He always had a few fruit trees, and in his later years he would grow enough corn and potatoes to be enjoyed by himself and many others.

He never married, but was a very positive factor in the lives of his nieces and nephews.

He was a genuinely good person and good neighbor, always there when you needed him. His laugh and sense of humour will be missed by all.

The family would like to thank the staff at Kamloops Seniors Village and Ponderosa Lodge for the care and kindness you gave him in the last few years.

A memorial for Clint will be held at a later date.
