Obituary of Billy Frank Keller

KELLER, Billy Frank “Bill”, 85, of Foley, AL, was taken away unexpectedly while traveling home to Alabama on Thursday, July 2, 2020. Bill was traveling home to Alabama after a visit to Wilmington, NC, where by God’s grace he just spent a wonderful week with his 3 children.

He was born on October 30, 1934, in Mansfield, LA to the late Francis Howard Keller and Estella Belle Ray Keller.

Surviving are his three children, Bryan Keller, Sr. (Sabina Milton), Mark Keller (Belinda), Estella Keller Black (Richard); sister, Frances Keller Marsh; 8 grandchildren, one niece,  two nephews and girlfriend Glenda Curl.

Bill served in the United States Army and was a graduate of Vanderbilt University class of 1957, where he attended on a full basketball scholarship. He spent his career in the Fire Protection Industry as an owner and entrepreneur of several companies in the Southeast, but began his career alongside his parents at Keller Fire and Safety, Kansas City, KS.

Bill enjoyed retiring to the Gulf Shores, AL area playing golf and making new friends, since he never met a stranger. He was always expanding his knowledge for science, history, and reading a good book.

The family will hold a private memorial service in Wilmington, NC at a later date.

    Bill was a wonderful neighbor. He and my husband Ken swapped many stories. There was a lot of laughing going on during his visits. Bill would cut our grass just for the fun of it. As Ken’s illness progressed, Bill helped in many ways as family came into town. Memories of Bill always bring big smiles. Our family loved Bill and considered him family.
