Kevin Keeler August 18, 1966 - June 29, 2019

Kevin Keeler, age 52 of Ozark, Missouri passed away Saturday, June 29, 2019 in Cox South Hospital, Springfield. He was born August 18, 1966, in Marshfield, Missouri the son of Dale and Edith (Samuel) Keeler. On July 4, 2003, Kevin was united in marriage to Brenda Gentile in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Kevin was a longtime employee for Webster County Road District where he successfully operated a road grader for 28 years. In addition to being a hard working employee, Kevin also visited his elderly mother everyday at the nursing home where he shared meals and conversation with other residents and staff. He was always a familiar face with a warm smile and enjoyed being a very devoted son. In his spare time, Kevin enjoyed fishing, hunting and his Summer pleasure was selling watermelons from the Missouri Bootheel. Kevin will be sadly missed but his memory will live on forever in the hearts of his family members and friends.

Kevin is survived by his wife Brenda; his 90 year old mother Edith Keeler; two sisters Kristi Taylor and husband Vaughn, Pam Cantrell;  two brothers Gary Keeler, Randy Cantrell and wife Jodina; father-in-law and mother-in-law Doc and Evelyn Gentile; brother-in-law Charley Gentile and wife Karen; sister-in-law Chris Ronan and husband Brent; and several special nieces and nephews who dearly loved their Uncle Kevin.

Kevin was preceded in death by his dad Dale Keeler and a brother Ron Cantrell.

Memorial services will be held 11:00A.M. Saturday, July 6, 2019 at Temple Baptist Church, 431 South Olive, Marshfield, Missouri. Arrangements under the care and direction of Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark. On line condolences may be shared at www.barnefamilyfunerals.com
