Lanny Dean Keney

Lanny Keney, of Quitman, passed away Thursday morning, March 24, 2022 at the age of 85.

Lanny Dean Keney was born in Sharpsburg, Ohio on December 16, 1936 to the late Earl Raymond and Ethel Pace Keney.  He met the love of his life, Jaunita McGowen, in California and tied the knot in 1958.  Lanny and Jaunita lived in Ohio for many years before hitting the road, traveling in their 5th wheel, and living in various places in the United States.  In 2004, they moved to Quitman. 

Lanny was a jack of all trades.  He could do a little bit of everything, but his favorite was wood working.  He was a master craftsman, and if you named it, he could build it.  He loved semi trucks and dump trucks and enjoyed driving them, and had a great appreciation for bluegrass music and vegetable gardening.

Lanny was a Christian man with a kind and gentle heart who loved his family dearly.  The hole left by his absence will be an impossible one to fill.

He greets in Heaven his parents, Earl and Ethel Keney, and six siblings: Jack Keney, Norma Black, Gene Keney, Maxine Peszlen, Marcella Reibel, and Dennis Keney.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 64 years, Jaunita Keney of Quitman; three children, Ted Keney and wife Victoria of Ohio, Jon Keney of Denton, TX, and Janet Gaban and husband Geoff of Arlington, TX; four siblings including his beloved twin sister, Wanda Spindler of Vincent, Ohio, and Dorothy George, Shirley Walker, and Peggy Keney, all of Arizona; three grandchildren, Candice, Nicole, and Geoffrey; four great grandchildren, Marco, Elena, James, and Olivia; one great grandson on the way; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members.
