Alvin Eugene Keaton, Nov. 28, 1931, to Dec. 16, 2013. In loving memory of a man who believed in playing fair and fought for that principle, who had a great sense of humor, who NEVER passed up an opportunity to make a pun, and who was gifted with an ability to avoid being caught up in the chaff...

Alvin was a wonderful person to have a small child I remember him so much. His Mother (My Aunt Pava) was so proud of him. Was so sad to here of his passing...Cousin Sue Harper Allen, Albuquerque,NM


Al, You are now in the Light. Love you lots.

Reading from the Gospel of John: "Simon Peter do you love me?"

But when this minnow encountered you in a class on existentialism, the minnow began to sprout legs and soon was an amphibian gaining access to solid ground. That minnow was me. Al, I have known you longer than I knew my own father. Sometimes I feel bad that I was not a true son to you but in many ways you...

Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one. During times of grief, allow God to comfort you and your family for he truly understands what you are going through. (Psalms 72:12-14)

Dear Keaton Family,
Professor Keaton was one of my most encouraging and engaging professors at NMSU. I will miss his sense of humor and friendly and warm presence.

With sincerest sympathies,


I am saddened to read about Al's passing. He was my philosophy prof at NMSU and worked with him in local GOP politics. He was a great mentor at that time and really appreciated his sense of "humor." My prayers are with you at this time. God bless you. Ron Camunez.
