It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father and Opa Arthur Keehn who went to be with his Lord on December 5, 2020 at the age of 80 years.
Art was a devoted family man, and his memory will be forever cherished by Clara, his loving wife of 58 years, daughter Debbie Keehn, son Darren (Lisa) Keehn, and grandsons Zakary and Jesse Keehn. With a special mention to Ray Keehn (nephew) who felt fortunate to have two fathers (Arnold & Art). Art also leaves to mourn one brother, Ervin (Reta) Keehn. He was predeceased by a son Dean Keehn, parents Wilhelm and Wanda Keehn, and siblings Reinhold Keehn and Arnold Keehn.
Art was born June 24, 1940 in Stewartfield, Alberta. At the age of 17, he moved to Edmonton where he met his wife and began a family. Art was a family man who fiercely loved his wife, children, and grandsons and always spoke of them with pride and admiration. But always a farm boy at heart, you would find Art at his brother’s farm in Leduc every seeding and harvest season driving that Massey Ferguson combine humming a tune. Art is remembered by family and friends as a gentle, sincere and humble man with a gift of putting people at ease. His kindness knew no bounds as he would gladly give of himself to anyone who was in need.
A Graveside Service will be held at South Haven Cemetery on December 11, 2020 . Those will wish to join by virtual attendance may do so by viewing the livestream at 11:00 am at https://distantlink.com/SerenityES.html.
