David Kent Keeler, age 84, passed away September 12, 2020. Although his family could not be there physically, he was surrounded in love in our hearts. Dave was born November 22, 1935 in Monroe, Michigan to Lawrence and Evelyn (Guest) Keeler. He attended Sylvania Burnham High School and in 1959, married the love of his life, Marlana Keeler.
Dave retired from driving truck for Teamsters Local 20 and then decided to drive school bus for Sylvania Schools. Dave’s passion for driving bus kept him young for many years.
When not working, Dave enjoyed camping and boating with his wife, watching Nascar races, Wendy’s cheeseburgers and chocolate Frosty’s, smoking cigarettes, and napping with his dog Rocky.
