Daniel Keister

Daniel T. Keister, 66, of Carey, passed away peacefully at 11:10 a.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at his residence surrounded by his family.
Born March 29, 1953, in Lancaster, he was the son of L. Don and Barbara E. (Spires) Keister. His parents survive in Ft. Myers, Fla. He married Lynn M. Niederkohr and they divorced. On Jan. 13, 2000, he married Teresa M. Fox in Jamaica. Teresa survives in Carey.
Dan is survived by his children, Corri L. (Steve) Miller of Findlay, and Alex A. (Kara) Keister of Sandusky; two step-daughters, Melissa R. Walter of Carey, and Michelle N. (Adam) Montz of Upper Sandusky; five grandchildren, Adyson, Anthony, Conner, Landen and Nicholas. He is also survived by seven siblings, Steve (Patti) Keister of Springboro; Leslie (Jim) Messmer of Medina; Mike (Paula) Keister of Estero, Fla.; Dave (Brenda) Keister of Powell, Wyo.; Mary (John) Puchta of Ft. Myers, Fla.; Penny (Tony) LeCroy of Port Charlotte, Fla., and Bill (Marjan) Keister of Columbus; and numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and -nephews.
He was a self-employed machinery mover and a long time member and former chief of the Carey Fire Department. He was a member of the Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey.
Dan had a passion for taking old useless things and giving them new life, whether it be a car, truck, furniture or toy. In Dan’s mind, one man’s junk is another’s treasure.
The most important thing in Dan’s life was his family. He especially loved spoiling his grandchildren.
The family will receive family and friends from 2-7 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, at Moreno’s Vault, 119 W. Findlay Street, Carey. A celebration of life will follow at 7:30 p.m., with everyone present given the opportunity to share a memory of Dan and raise a glass to remember his remarkable life.
In Lieu of flowers, the family would like memorial contributions to be made in Dan’s memory to Bridge Home Health and Hospice. If you cannot attend send contributions to Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, 225 W. Findlay Street, Carey, OH 43316.
