ANDREWS We are gathering to celebrate Keith Andrews’ triumphant entry to heaven. Harold “Keith “Andrews was born June 27th, 1936 in Selkirk, Manitoba. On Sunday, Feb 3, 2008 he left this life to meet His Lord and forever be with Him.
Keith was the oldest son of Harry and Jessie Andrews of Selkirk, Manitoba (both deceased), and the loving and faithful husband of Vivien Andrews, his wife of 51 years. Keith also leaves behind 4 children and their spouses, Rick (Teresa), Teresa (Alden Abraham), Lonny (Heather), and Sandy (Sohan Pooni), plus 9 grandchildren, Jeremy, Christopher, Jenna, Jennifer, Julie, Louis, Kristina, Kimberly, and Neesha. His pride and joy in the past years are his great grandchildren, Bryce and Lauren. He is also survived by his brother, Wayne Andrews and wife Vivian of Winnipeg Manitoba and his sister, Jeanette Bobrovich of Selkirk, Manitoba, 3 nieces Kim, Jacqueline, and Diane and 1 great nephew, Robert; many cousins and other relatives.
Keith became a journeyman electrician in 1957 and worked faithfully at his trade for 44 years, retiring in 2003 from the I.B.E.W. His work always was a great joy as was fishing, hunting and camping. A Metis background on his father’s side may have stimulated these urges. His family was know in the Red River Valley as first settlers at Lower Fort Garry and founders of the Old Stone St. Andrews Church at St. Andrews Manitoba, both of which still stand as historical sights in Manitoba.
Keith married his wife Vivien at an early age and together with their four children they eventually settled in Abbotsford, B.C. Keith will be missed by all his friends at Park Place, his family, and his church family at Northview. A service of triumphant entry to heaven will be held at 2 P.M. Friday, February 8th at Northview Church. Viewing of the body will precede the service at 1:30 P.M. Burial will be in Cloverdale, Manitoba in the family plot at the church his family helped establish. Gilbart’s Funeral Home in charge.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Cyrus Centre (a drop in teen centre). Envelopes will be made available at the service.
