David McKeag, age 83, of Stanton, died Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at the Northfield Long Term Care Center in Northfield.
David William McKeag was born on March 18, 1936 in St. Paul, the son of David and Martha (Robinson) McKeag. He was a life-long resident of Stanton and graduated from Randolph High School in 1955.
On January 18, 1956 David was united in marriage to Audrey Felton at First English Lutheran Church in Cannon Falls.
Dave was an Irishman, he had a knack for telling jokes, always wore a smile, had an infectious laugh and was always kind. He always had time to visit and he could visit with anyone. He enjoyed farming and going to auctions. He had different jobs over his lifetime but was known best as a bus driver. Over the years he delivered many Randolph students to school and athletic events. He was loved beyond measure and will be missed by many.
David’s greatest treasure was his family. Survivors include his wife Audrey, children David B. (Jan) McKeag, Dixie (Marv) Schaffer, Dan McKeag, and Mike (Jodie) McKeag; grandchildren Brett (Nikki) Schaffer, Derek (Nicci) McKeag, Luke Schaffer, Jessy (Jason) Welvaert, Jenny McKeag, and Ellie McKeag; great-grandchildren Reyce Schaffer, Jayce Schaffer, William Welvaert, and Isabella Welvaert; brother-in-law Arnold Felton, and sister-in-law Arlene Ringeisen and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his daughter-in-law Zandra Soza McKeag.
