In memory of
Keith Brindley Ketner
Keith Brindley Ketner, longtime resident of Arvada, passed away peacefully on June 18 surrounded in love by his three daughters Mary Gladstone, Jacqui Ketner and Paula Zavitz. Keith was predeceased by the love of his life, Donna Mulder Ketner. Born in 1921 in rural Boscobel Wisconsin, Keith fully lived the major transitions of 20th century. He lived in a home without running water until he was ten years old and experienced the challenges of the great depression. He was a pilot in World War 2 and worked as a research geologist through a period that his field of science was going through profound changes. Keith never stopped learning or adventuring in life. He kept going to his lab every day until his late 80s and publishing his research in leading geological journals well into his 90s. He loved skiing, hiking through the Nevada wilderness to collect rock specimens, riding his bicycle and watching birds. Keith and Donna traveled extensively across the world. Keith often described himself as the luckiest man alive. His children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will dearly miss him, but always remember his inspiration. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to The Nature Conservancy or help maintain the many bird boxes that Keith installed in the parks and nature areas around Arvada.
