Donald Lloyd Keenan, 82, died peacefully in Hendersonville Friday, April 20, 2018 due to unexpected complications from pneumonia.

Don was born in Oak Park, Illinois on December 22, 1935 and lived most of his life in the Chicago area until retiring to Flat Rock twenty-five years ago. He graduated with a BA from University of Illinois and a MBA from University of Chicago. Don served his country as 1st Lieutenant with the United States Air Force receiving an honorable discharge in 1960. He then joined his family’s printing business, Index Sales Corporation, Inc., serving as its CEO until he sold the company in the early ‘90s. Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Lloyd and Gertrude Keenan and his brother, Richard Keenan.

Donald was a devoted husband to his wife of sixty years, Marion Hunter Keenan. He was a loving father and grandfather to his seven children and their spouses, his eleven grandchildren and their spouses. Don is also survived by his sister, Joan Gross.

A service honoring Don’s life will be held on Friday, April 27 at 2:00 pm at St. John in the Wilderness, 1905 Greenville Highway, Flat Rock, NC 28731. As a twenty-year member of St. John’s, the Keenan family would appreciate that in lieu of flowers, donations be made instead to a memorial fund established in Don’s honor at St. John in the Wilderness. This kind and faithful servant will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
