Obit for Raymond F. Keller

The family patriarch, Raymond Francis Keller, of Vincennes, IN, passed away with family by his side on Saturday, February 3, 2018. Ray, as many known him as, was born on May 3, 1940 in Vincennes, Indiana, to the late John G Keller and Agnes (Thomas) Keller.

He was a regular attender and member of the St. Francis Xavier Parish. He was a graduate of Central Catholic class of 1958, a member of Eagles Lodge and a 3rd degree member of Knights of Columbus.
His love of his life of 50 years was to the late Patricia (Pat) Kay Keller.  He will be remembered by his family as a kind hearted father and grandfather, a man of wit and sarcasm, an avid Pepsi drinker, and a man who loved a good meal.  Ray was a family man who instilled and taught those around him the values of hard work, the importance of a strong Christian faith, and to cherish family above all. His legacy of good will to all people was and will always be the heartbeat of his family.
He is survived by his 5 children.
