RIP Jeffrey Keene

It is with deepest sadness that I share the passing of my younger brother, Jeffrey Keene (December 2, 1970 - December 18, 2016). He was a talented chef, artist and athlete. He will be missed by many. May he rest in peace always.

Here is one of his self-portraits from just a few years ago. We both had dreadlocks at the time.

When I was in St. Louis recently, I took photographs of several of his paintings, posting one on Instagram. Here they are a few. All are acrylic on board. They remind me of the very best of his spirit.

There will be a memorial service for Jeffrey this upcoming Tuesday, December 27, 2016, at 11 am, Day Star Church, 5145 N. Highway 67 (Lindbergh), Florissant, MO 63031.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorials to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, 4431 Lindell Blvd., St. Louis, MO, 63108, or the Humane Society of Missouri, 1201 Macklind Avenue, St. Louis, MO, 63011, or a charity of your choice be considered.
