Keeler, Jason A.

Jason A. Keeler, age 44, of Ripon, WI, passed away on Saturday, May 10, 2014, at Hospice Home of Hope in Fond du Lac, with his loving family by his side.

Jason was born March 30, 1970, in Ripon, the son of Rick and Diane (Klaver) Keeler. He attended Green Lake High School. In 2000, Jason was united in marriage to Tammi Van Ornum on St. Thomas, in the Virgin Islands. To all those who knew Jason, they will remember him for his mechanical expertise. He was employed by several places over the years working as a mechanic, but the last two years he enjoyed his time working as a Machine Operator at Ripon Printers. There was no engine that was too small or too large, he was up for the challenge and did so with great pride and joy. He was always happiest when his hands were greasy. To Jason, his family came first. He especially loved spending time with his wife and daughters. He also had a special place in his heart for his dogs; Diesel, Petro, and Vin. Jason's special past time was smoking meat and brewing his own beer.
