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 fixing 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.
