James Glynn Keeton
Feb. 12, 1971 - Sept. 20, 2021
James Glynn Keeton, 50, passed away surrounded by his family on Monday, September 20, 2021. James was born on February 12, 1971, to Linda Keeton Jones and Al Keeton. His absolute love and devotion to his wife, Joanna, was unwavering throughout the course of their 29 years together. His driven personality helped him become a Freemason in 2002, proudly serve in the U.S. Navy, and join the Dean's list multiple times. He was a commercial fisherman in Alaska, a directional driller in the oil field, and owned three successful businesses. James will always be remembered for his incredible kindness, his thirst for knowledge, and his innate ability to make those around him laugh. He enjoyed playing his guitar and telling stories of his many adventures throughout life. James adored taking cruises, travelling, being at sea, Mardi Gras and Las Vegas, but he always said his favorite experience was driving across the country with Joanna. James was a remarkable, unforgettable, and irreplaceable man. His loss will reverberate through the lives of his loved ones forever.
