His much-loved family, Ted (Shauna) Keunecke, Michael (Amy) Keunecke, Stepson Jordan Smith, stepdaughters Jillian (Derek) Smith and Laura (Erik) Smith. Adorable and full of joy his grandchildren, Emily, Trinity, Abby, Sophie, Elizabeth-Jane, Colton & Ava. Great support from his brother Dieter (Renata) Keunecke, Sisters Karin (Uwe †) Prohl, and Helga (Rick †) Howald. Brother and sister in law, Chris and Terrie Dewsbury, the Dewsbury family and many wonderful nieces and nephews on both sides.
VISIONARY FOR LIFE
Klaus was instrumental in starting up the Lambton Shores Nature Trails (LSNT) over 8 years ago and his heart and soul right to the end, was in the service of our communities and the clearing of the trails to provide, 'Connected, safe user-friendly trails' for all ages, for generations to come.
His ultimate vision was to see natural bridges built between all of our communities with a common goal bigger than us all, to connect and preserve our beautiful 'Gems of Nature' via hiking trails in Lambton Shores and Vicinity. The ULTIMATE outcome would be the creation of a Biosphere here in our area for all life to coexist and thrive.
Our wish is that donations go to the LSNT Trailhead Project in Port Franks in Memory of Klaus
A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, November 24, 2019, at the Port Franks Community Centre from 1pm-3pm.
