Keith Cleave Obituary

It is with deep sadness that the family of Keith Cleave announces his passing on January 15, 2024 at the Grace Hospital in Winnipeg.  He waged a valiant battle with kidney disease and a stroke.  

Keith was born February 8, 1970 to Cliff and Lynda Cleave.  He has one older brother, Bob.  He grew up in Dauphin and went to school at Barker, MacKenzie and DRCSS.  

After high school, Keith worked at Westmore Car Wash and Westman Plastics.  He went back to school at ACC in Dauphin and graduated at the top of his class with a Computer Support Specialist Degree.  

In 2006, Keith moved to Winnipeg to find a job in the field he had chosen and lived with his brother Bob.  In 2008, Keith suffered kidney failure and six months later he had a stroke which kept him in hospital for 5 weeks.  

Before moving to Winnipeg, Keith's passion was pool.  He was very active in the league with his friends.  His team qualified twice for a trip to Las Vegas to compete in a tournament.  Keith organized the trip they took to Vegas one of those years.  

Keith loved football, especially the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  He went to all of the home games with his brother after moving to Winnipeg.  His other passion was gaming on his computer.  He made many friends during this time.  

Keith leaves to mourn his passing; his mother Lynda, his brother Bob and his step-father Larry Wiggins, aunts Dianne Tuthill, Louise and Judy Cleave, Lorraine Munro, uncles John Munro, Mel and Garry Cleave, cousins Todd, Clinton, Cory, Michelle, Marsha, and Anne-Michelle as well as other extended family and many friends.  

Keith was predeceased by his father Cliff, and his grandparents Eva and Arnold Tuthill, Lorne and Thelma Cleave, uncle Rod Cleave and aunts Nancy and Jean Cleave.
