It is with great sadness that the family announce the peaceful passing of Keith William Alexander Berthelette on June 19, 2024. 

Keith was born on August 3, 1950 in St. Adolphe, MB.  This is where he met the love of his life, Louise Desrochers, married May 30, 1970, just celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary.

He will be sadly missed by his wife, Louise, son’s Kevin and Jason (Shauna), grandchildren Jared (Jackie), Kyle, Blair (Ava), Tara (Maison) and Jayce.  As well as his brothers and sisters, Jerry (Flo), Eleanor (Dave), Raymond (JoAnne), Rachel (Bob), Michael (Deb), Kenny and Rhonda (Pete).

Keith was predeceased by his parents, Gerry & Agnes Berthelette and his siblings Elaine, Anne and Wayne (Weiner).

Keith’s siblings are so thankful for everything he did to help with Wayne and Kenny, ‘he had a heart of gold’

The Desrochers family was also very dear to him.  The wonderful times at the cabin with Louise’s parents, Bob and Irene and brothers Leo (Marcelle) and Roger (Marlene) will never be forgotten.

Keith’s love for the Jets, Blue Bombers and Blue Jays will carry on through Louise, their sons and grandchildren.  Nothing could have made him happier than watching their passion for the teams he loved.  One of the greatest moments was sharing the Blue Bomber 2019 Grey Cup win with them.

He was affectionately known as “Mr. B” from his boys’ friends and baseball family where he spent some of his most enjoyable times watching his sons play baseball and coaching.

Keith was a plumber and lifetime member of Local Union 254 where he spent many great times with his “brothers”.

The countless family and friend get togethers, the beers shared, the laughter heard for miles and his love for life will be forever in many of our hearts.

As per Keith’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at the Four Crowns at 1030 McPhillips Street on July 6, 2024 between 2:00 – 5:00.  A ‘come and go’ to enjoy a beer, share a laugh and fond memory of Keith.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or Cancer Care Manitoba.



Of all the things in all the world

to make each day more glad,

There’s nothing like the precious love

Of Dear old Faithful Dad.

He may not know how dear He is,

Nor all that He is worth,

But all the same He’ll ever be,

The Dearest Dad on earth.
