Condolences for Robert “Bob” Charles McKeen
Bob was a dear friend and neighbor for several years. He will be missed and in our thoughts for years to come.
I met Bob and the entire McKeen family S their paperboy a half century ago. I had between 60 & 80 customes on my route, and in those days, carriers had to collect subscription fees from the customers monthly. It was the worst part of the job; even worse than slogging through a couple of feet of snow. BUT every time I’d stop at the McKeen household, Bob and Joan were some of the nicest, good natured and good humored grownups I’d ever met. They’d take time out of their lives to visit with me, see how I was doing, and even discuss current events from the day’s news that I delivered to them.
And I also had the great honor to be friends with Kelly and Patrick. Kelly was a classmate of mine many times as we were growing up, and the McKeen home was always one that made me feel welcome, and Bob & Joan always treated me; talked to me, respectfully as if I were a grownup. Both of them were among the nicest people I’d ever met, and both were witty and we often shared laughter.
Honestly, I never met a couple of folks that were nicer, more respectful and always such fun to visit with. And now they’re together again. God bless them both: grieving for them is truly less painful than most, due to all of the just plain fun conversations I had with them for years! My condolences to Kelly & Pat and their families. Your folks were just plain cool, and funny people. And may they rest in peace.
