March 22, 1940 - September 29, 2018
Jimmy Keeler boogied on up to heaven on Sat., Sept. 29, 2018. He passed at the age of 78 of Lewy Body Dementia in Dassel, MN. Born on Mar. 22, 1940 to Frank H. and Jennie (Globoker) Keeler in Minneapolis, MN. Jimmy attended St. Thomas the Apostle Elementary School, Southwest High School and the University of Minnesota. Jimmy had the gift of gab and could often be found socializing with old friends and making new ones. He loved to "work you a deal" as an insurance salesman and also owned two liquor stores, Lakeside Wine + Spirits in Long Lake and Lowry Hill Liquors in Minneapolis. His heaven on earth was an open bar and all-you-can-eat buffet, golfing with the Keeler Brotherhood, traveling the world with his wife Susan, and the fireworks festivities every 4th of July on Lake Washington. His memorable dance moves were a topic of conversation for many. Jimmy was looking forward to being the King of Christmas at this year's Keeler Family Christmas. Lovingly remembered by wife Susan; children, Michael (Lynn Nelson) Keeler, Kevin Keeler, Kathleen (Mark) Loughmiller; Patrick Keeler, Courtney Tackett, Sean (Erica) Keeler, Bryan (Cortney Mohnk) Keeler; 13 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren; siblings, Mary Jean Peterson, Thomas (Darlene) Keeler, Patricia (Mike) Sorenson and twin John (Karen) Keeler, Services will be held on Sat., Oct. 6th at St. John’s Catholic Church in Darwin, MN with a reviewal at 10 a.m. and mass at 11 a.m. Afterward, there will be a gathering at Thirsty's Tavern in Dassel for a toasting and roasting of Jimmy, food, beverages and dancing - just as he wanted. Bring your Jimmy stories but leave your neckties at home. The interment of the urn will be on a later date at Dawn Valley Memorial Park in Bloomington. If you wish to give in Jimmy's spirit to a cause close to the family, please consider Lewy Body Dementia Association at www.lbda.org.
