Henry Leroy Keller
unknown - July 12, 2015
Henry Leroy Keller, of Cascade Locks, Ore., passed away on the evening of Sunday, July, 12, 2015. He was preceded by his loving wife of 36 years, Geraldine “Geri” Lee Keller, in 1997; and his brothers Lanie and Donald.
He is survived by his five daughters: Susie, Kathy, Karry, Carol and Linda; 11 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.
Henry lived a full life, born in Nebraska in 1940 to Lanie and Thelma Keller, though he spent most of his early years in southern California with his wife, Geri, as they built their family. Henry owned his own businesses his entire life, operating wherever they lived, including Keller’s Towing and Keller’s Landscape. They also owned Geri’s Hair Salon operated by his wife in Long Beach, Calif., for many years. Together they spent a lot of time traveling between southern California and Cascade Locks to visit their best friends Don and Joyce Henskin. Henry eventually moved to Cascade Locks in 2001 after Geri passed away; again starting up his landscaping businesses, accumulating many loyal customers that he always considered friends. He is remembered by all his family and friends as a hardworking, loving and caring person.
Henry will be finally reunited with his loving wife and interred at Forest Lawn Cemetery on July 21 at 12:30 p.m., 4471 Lincoln Ave., Cypress, CA 90630, Section: Morning Star; Lot: 1742; Space: 01.
