Clinton (Chip) R. Keeler III, 69, son of Clinton R. Keeler Jr. and Rosemary Keeler, was the most constantly curious man we knew. He taught everyone he met so much throughout his life. He taught us to take the perfect photo and look for the beauty all around us. A wealth of both useful and random knowledge, he taught us the names of every obscure college mascot, crushed everyone at Jeopardy, and was the guy you always wanted on your trivia team. He loved adventures, the rules of tennis, really long stories, and timing the perfect joke. Born on September 25, 1952 in Syracuse, New York, he mostly taught us how to care intensely about the people you love.

 

An embarrassingly proud husband, father, dog dad, friend, business owner and human, Chip spent every minute he could talking to everyone he could about us, his girls (wife of 40 years Camille, daughters Lauren and Lindsey, and pups Maggie, Sadie and Lucy). We can’t imagine a future that isn’t filled to the brim with his stories and fun facts, but we hope those who knew him will strive to be just a little more curious about life in his honor. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, November 13th at Las Palmas Clubhouse (215 N. Power Rd.) in Mesa, Arizona from 2-4pm.  In lieu of flowers, we welcome donations to Kids in Focus or Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary in his memory.

For those attending the celebration in Mesa, vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test in the last 48 hours is required.  Additionally, masks must be worn by all attendees while inside the clubhouse.

    Cami, this is Elwyn McCargar I grew up with chip three houses away . We spent many days at the camp together and Rosemary was my quasi-nanny when I was very young. The last time I saw you was at your wedding, then life got in the way and I lived oversees, then in Florida. I recently began looking for Chip and was astounded that he/you were living in Mesa as I live south of Phoenix. I am so sorry for you loss, what a great kid/man who was full of fun and life. Bless you and your family. If you ever get the chance and have time, please give me a call and tell me about his life as an adult and I will share with you some of our exploits growing up together which I think you would enjoy. 813-404-5685
