Obituary for Franklin W. Keel

Franklin W. Keel, 70, of Fostoria, passed away on Sunday, October 6, 2019, at Good Shepherd Home, in Fostoria.
He was born June 2, 1949, in Fostoria, to Avery and Dorothy (Basinger) Keel. He married Sandra (Pelton) Weimerskirch on September 12, 1986, at High Street United Methodist Church in Fostoria.
Surviving is his loving wife of 33 years, Sandra: two sons, Tony Keel, of Schaumburg, Ill., and Ryan (Tanya) Keel, of Cheyenne, Wyo.; step-children, Christine and Jasen Weimerskirch, both of Fostoria; one grandson, Sheldon Keel; step-grandchildren, Dylan (Samantha) Weimerskirch, Alexis Miller, Weston Weimerskirch, and Mya Weimerskirch; one step-great-granddaughter, Adara Weimerskirch; one brother, Howard Duane “Dewey” Keel, of Diamond Bar, CA; and one sister, Lucretia “Lu” Taylor, of Dunedin, Florida. He was preceded in death by his parents.
Frank had a good sense of humor. He enjoyed gardening and his dogs, who accompanied him while hunting, which was one of his leisure time passions. Additionally, his favorite activities included fishing, shooting, bowling, and playing golf. He also played on a pool league.
He was a member of the Fostoria United Sportsman’s Club, and was a former member of the Fostoria Moose Lodge, Post 73 American Legion, and the Fostoria Eagles Post 430.
In his earlier years, Frank worked for Bendix-Autolite. He then retired from Atlas Crankshaft, now Thyssenkrupp, after 39 years of service. Upon retiring he could be found helping out at Pelton’s Market, alongside his wife Sandy.
