Obituary of Keith Arseneau


Keith passed away from complications of late stage rheumatoid arthritis at St Catharines General Hospital on January 3, 2022 at the age of 62.  Born in Toronto, Keith worked for Canadian Border Services as a Senior Immigration Officer for 36 years. His high school sweetheart and wife Laura were happily married for over 38 years. Together they had a loving son, Nick Arseneau. Nick and his wife Emily Saunders recently welcomed a grandson, Jamie. Keith will be fondly remembered by his brother Gary Arseneau (Susan), nephew Sam, in-laws Bing and Rebecca Wang, and a large extended family in Toronto, Trenton and Nova Scotia. 

Keith was a life-long musician, faithful Anglican, avid fisherman and golfer. He volunteered doing security and DJ for many Science Fiction conventions over the years. He was also involved with the local Legion and Masonic Lodge wherever he lived. The family are grateful for the exceptional care provided by the dedicated staff at St Catharines General during his final month.
