Keith Penry Passes

Keith G. Penry
March 19 1926 -April 6 2010
Keith passed away peacefully at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital, Tuesday, April 6, 2010. Over the last few years he resided at Mulberry Place where he enjoyed meeting and sharing stories with many new and old friends. Keith loved people and his trusting nature allowed him to always see the good in someone else. Keith's life journey began on the farm near Ernfold, Saskatchewan. Farming was not his intended career as his aspirations were to become an educator. Keith touched the lives of many students while he taught at Central Collegiate from 1953 until 1982. Many stories can be told about Keith's History, Social Studies, Physical Education, Coaching and Woodworking classes. Keith could often be found out refereeing a football game and or at the hockey rink where his love for hockey kept him involved with the Hockey Society. Keith's love of wood became more involved after teaching woodworking at Central Collegiate. As a hobbyist Keith was a member of the Wood Guild. He spent many hours turning wood into beautiful ornamental pieces that now adorn many homes. Throughout his life Keith was passionate about his role with the Saskatchewan Dragoons. Summers were often spent in Dundurn and during the years 1970 to 1974 he was the Commanding Officer. Until recently Keith still tried to attend as many functions as he could. Keith was Grand Master during 1971-72 with the Moose Jaw Masonic Temple and became a lifetime member in 2003. Keith will be sadly missed by his (son and daughter-in-law) Scott and Ally Penry, (daughter) Susan Taylor, (grandchildren) Brooke, Dallas and Jordyn. Keith was predeceased by his wife, Marjorie Joan; sister, Carol; and his parents Russell and Ethel Penry. There will be a visitation at Parkview Funeral Chapel on Sunday, April 11th, 2010 from 7 - 9 pm. A service to honour Keith's life will be held on Monday April 12th, 2010 at the First Baptist Church on Main Street, at 10:00 am. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Services are entrusted to Parkview Funeral Chapel.
