  1. Although I never had the opportunity or pleasure of meeting your father David Keene, I feel like a new him through his son Ron.
    Ron who I have known for over 25 plus years worked for my father Jim for a few years and we also worked together on and off within the electrical industry.
    Ron is one of the most kind hearted men I have ever been associated with. He is slow to anger, seldom has a mean spirited word too say about anyone and sincerely cares and emotionally invests himself in others.
    Despite the adversity we all face in life, Ron seems to always see the best in what life deals us. That fighter spirit, kind heart and love for his fellow man I am sure is a direct result of what his father David imparted upon his son Ron..
    My sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the Keene familyas David Robert Keene’s life is celebrated today.
