Obituary

Obituary for Frank John Keller

Frank J. Keller, 57, of Bonner Springs, KS died in an auto accident on Tue., May 28, 2019. Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of life get together on June 4, 2019 from 6 to 8 pm, at the Harrington Family Event Center in Bonner Springs, KS. We would call it a ceremony but the only thing Frankie hated more than the New England Patriots was pomp and circumstance. A short service will be held at 7:30 pm. All are invited to say a few words. Frankie was born Oct. 8, 1961 in Kansas City, KS to Wilma and Art Keller. He was a life long resident of the area. He was project manager for Matrix Technologies and a life long geek. He loved to entertain the family with long discussions about logic puzzles, Pizza making techniques and lots of "dad jokes." Luckily for us his youngest son Michael has also mastered logic conversations that make no sense to the rest of us, pizza making and the ever entertaining "dad Jokes." Frankie also had a fun sense of adventure that was shared with his oldest son AJ. Together they enjoyed baseball, boating and camping. This will be difficult for AJ at the lake as Frankie had the only stomach that could handle AJ's love of repetive fast figure 8's on the lake. With his friends Frankie enjoyed "hanging out," visiting and making music. He was a drummer who played in several bands throughout his life but always came back to play with his longtime friends Jeff, Troy and Steve. Frankie leaves behind two kids AJ and Michael Keller, a sister Kathy McCrink and a brother Art Keller. In addition he leaves behind many friends, an ex wife Reva Keller and a host of ex-in laws that would not leave him alone. We are going to miss you. We love you.

I wish to send my sincere condolences and sympathy to the family of Frank Keller. Frank was a great person and it was a privilege to know him and work with him at Fresh Start Bakeries. Frank had so many qualities about him and he developed a lot of friends within the Fresh Start organization which all share their similar comments and regards. Franks humor, friendship, compassion and caring about people were contagious. Frank could use his great sense of humor to help deal with the pressures of a difficult business situation and that was greatly appreciated.
Franks son's I am sure are aware of the special man Frank was and that they had a wonderful person as their dad I am sure they and many others who's life was impacted by Frank will miss him greatly!

What a loss. First time I really remember the beginning of our friendship was in 5th grade. Mr. Weber had just ended band practice and we were headed home. Frank's mom felt sorry for me carrying my snare drum case and offered me a ride. Since then, Frank Keller, Russell Pino, myself, and later, Troy were a force to be reckoned with. We tormented Bill Florez to no end (the band director). I remember one day when we all decided to see who held the most power, the director or the percussion. As Bill was directing, we took it upon ourselves to increase the tempo. The band followed our lead and we were howling with laughter. Ha! Band (fourth hour) was an hour-long cut up session. As we moved up the ranks, Frank would force the freshmen/sophomores to play while we sat in back and cracked jokes. Endless laughs. But don't get me wrong. There was a serious rivalry between Frank and myself. Both of us practiced hours and hours trying to best the other. I believe Frank had more natural talent and eventually rose to the top. Music Theory eventually kicked our butts and we stayed with banging the drums. The last time I spent with Frank was during college days as KU. Frank took me to a Frank Zappa concert. All the crazy time signatures intrigued him. It seemed like Zappa was more fascinated with the difficulty of the music, than musicality itself. Frank and I eventually grew apart. Understandably, Frank wanted to spend more time with Linda Reynolds than me. Go figure. I also remember the time Frank turned his back on junk food, opting for more fruits/veggies/steak. He began noticing his friends' muscles growing and saw what kind of food we ate for lunch. What a quick study, huh? Frank Keller was one of the highlights to my childhood. We both saw life through the same lens, and for each other's benefit, always pointed out the hilarious crap. He had that infectious smile and was always ready for the next punch line. (My wife went for a drive yesterday and crashed into a tree! She said, "Honey, it's not my fault! I honked!) I love you Frank. Your friend always. Matt White

Someone told me they thought my kids were spoiled.... I said, "Don't worry, they all smell like that."
