MARTENS, Keith Fredrick
July 15, 1954 – July 6, 2007
It Is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son, brother, uncle, & friend, in Victoria B.C. He is survived by his mother, Mary Martens, (Kamloops), brothers Ken (Linda), Richmond, Karl (Edmonton), Kevin (Diana), Kamloops, Kerry (Joanne) Vancouver & sister Karen Elder (David), Kamloops, his grandmother Helen Reimer (Vernon) & many uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews & a niece throughout Canada. Preceded by his father Bill Martens, Dec. 1978 and grandparents Fred & Ruth Thrussell, & grandpa Peter Reimer.
Keith enjoyed life; from his early years performing music in front of friends & family, to renovating houses. He moved to Victoria & became a passionate gardener & handyman. His real gift was always helping others before himself. His warm and loving heart and his kindness to others will be sadly missed by all who know him.
A celebration of his life will be held in Kamloops on August 5th, 2007 at 2 o’clock at Paul Lake picnic site across from the Bluff.
