Devin Leray Keller passed away on March 25, 2020, at Merit Health River Region Medical Center at the age of 49.
Devin was a lifelong resident of Vicksburg, Miss. He was a kind-hearted man who always kept the Lord and family first. He was a loving father to his three girls and a great friend to many. He loved life and lived every day to the fullest. He never met a stranger and always put a smile on everyone’s face with his witty laughter and crazy ways. He made many fun memories with everyone he was ever around. He loved horses and was a great teacher to many that ever rode with him. He loved trail rides and made it very adventurous with his presence. Heaven gained a great angel; he will be missed by many. His three girls wanted to share a contribute to their father:
Cammi “ My dad taught me many lessons in life, he taught me to believe in myself, live life the best way I can, raise my babies with courage and strength, and do not be afraid in life. Live and embrace every moment.”
Carley :Pootwhopy”: “I was given that name by my dad for reasons everyone will know. My dad was a simple man. He did not ever need much in life. He loved little things in life whether it was riding horses or sitting on the porch. My dad lived his life to the fullest and never once held back. Thank you for a life filled with laughter and great memories.”
Addi Rae “I had 13 short years with my father. He was one of the funniest, wild and crazy guys to be around. He put me on my first horse when I was 1, and my first four wheeler when I was 4. I always wanted to be fearless like my daddy. I want everyone to know I had the ‘coolest Dad with the biggest heart.’ He told me to always read the Bible and said, you don’t have to like everyone, but you have to love them, and those words will always stick til I get to see my dad for the next time.”
He is survived by his parents, Elmer and JoAnn Keller; daughters, Cammi Keller, Carley Keller and Addi Keller; brothers, David Pugh, Dwain Pugh and Darren Keller; grandchildren, Nataleigh Marshall, Eden Keller and Devin Marshall.
