Dickson (Dick) Douglas Kuehl

February 8, 1946 – January 2, 2019

Dick passed away peacefully in hospital with his wife
and son by his side. He was born in Pembroke, grew up
on the family farm and lived his life in Quadeville with his
wife Charlotte (Quade) of 48 years, his son Steve (Wendy)
of Braeside, and much loved and adored grandson Tanner
and granddaughter Callie. He is survived by his brother Lloyd
(Lois) Kuehl. Leaves behind many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews and
nieces and families of both the Kuehl and Quade families. He was predeceased
by family members; his parents Charles and Margaret (Rosien) Kuehl, brother
Kenneth Kuehl, sister Joan (Kuehl) Pilgrim. Also predeceased by his best friend
Allan (Jesse) James and a good friend and brother-in-law Garry Mayhew who he
will now meet again.
Dick had many accomplishments in his life. When he was a younger man
he decided to become a Hoisting Engineer and was very accomplished in that
role. Years later he became a Road Superintendent. He worked for Smiths/Miller
Construction of Arnprior, Eastway Developing and Contracting, and Greyleith Co.
Retired at the age of 67.
Dick enjoyed his life immensely and said he’d never change a thing. He enjoyed
his family life and had many friends, too many to mention. Dick could always be
found in his garage and welcomed everyone whether it was for a quick hello,
advice on fi xing something, parts for a vehicle or for a longer visit. There was
room enough for family, friends and even the occasional stranger. If he wasn’t in
his garage he could be found with all the guys back at the hunting camp. Some
of Dick’s favourite pastimes included visiting his brother Lloyd in his garage on
the family farm and working with his John Deere tractor. So rest in peace Dick
until we see you again. Dick wished to be cremated, there will be a private spring
interment.
