KRUEGER Keith Monroe July 3 2020

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Keith Krueger on Friday, July 3, 2020, at the age of 72 years.
Keith was born on April 11, 1948 and grew up in northern Manitoba. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces and became a member of the Military Police, like his father and uncle, serving in Borden, ON, Calgary, AB, and Germany in the 1960s. After leaving the Military he pursued his dream of being a pilot, working extensively in the Canadian north as a bush pilot on wheels, skis, and floats. Once his family was established and started to grow, he moved on to larger and larger aircraft. He spent the majority of his career flying in the Canadian north, but also around the world flying in Papua New Guinea, the former USSR, Europe, USA, Mexico, South America, Africa, Turkey, Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, and Australia. In the 1990s he joined the Leduc Air Cadets Squadron 831 Black Knights as a Ground School Instructor and later becoming the Squadron Commanding Officer while also giving of his time at Branch #108 Royal Canadian Legion. LAMP held a very special place in his heart, and he mentored their new Pastor Pilots for many years. Keith loved sharing his experience, knowledge, and passion for flying with any willing pilot he crossed paths with.
Keith would be the first to tell you he was a flawed man who loved his Lord and was eternally grateful for the gift of Salvation and its grace.
Keith is survived by Joy Krueger (nee Commandant) his wife of 44 years, his children Kristine (Dale) Marr, Kathy (Vaughn) Laycock, James Krueger, Karen (Kevin) Peters, Kristoffer (Kendall) Krueger, and Kevin (Breann) Krueger, and his Grandchildren Dane, Catlin, Ila, Anna, Carter, Aron and Flynn.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, July 10 at 1 pm, by invitation only.
The service will be live-streamed by Leduc Alliance Church. Viewing information can be found at
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to:
Cross Cancer Institution

  4. I first met Keith in Fort McMurray in 1979. Whenever we crossed paths he was always genuine and friendly.

  5. I am very sad to hear of Keith’s passing. I knew Keith through the air cadet program. He was a very dedicated CIC officer who tirelessly served his squadron. He was a great mentor to many and the cadet program was so lucky to benefit from his many contributions.

  6. I am saddened by this news. I worked at NWTAir for a few years and always liked working with Keith, during the 737 days. From Yellowknife, Fort Simpson to Inuvik always had kind words for the employees. My sympathies to the family,.

  7. Dear Joy and family – I worked side by side with Keith at Contact Airways in YMM in 1979 as he was making his transition out of the world of floats and on to the grand old Dakota. I got to listen in as he gave himself mini sermons if he felt that his recent actions or a vocabulary slip had driven him off “the path”. He was keen and tireless as a co-worker and completely dedicated to his family, talking about you as we droned slowly across the Eastern Arctic. I know that he would have had a positive effect on what sounds like many cadets and that he is probably back at peak strength loading a heavenly DeHavilland.
