David Wayne “Dave” Keeney, age 52 of Hudson WI and formerly of Mt. Hope WI, died sudden and unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at his residence. Dave was born March 11, 1960 in Mt. Hope WI to parents Milton and Doris (Stanfley) Keeney. David was a graduate of West Grant High School in Patch Grove WI. After high school, David furthered his education at Technical College, and received multiple degrees in CAD drawing and design. On August 16, 1986, Dave was united in marriage to Marie Crawford. The ceremony was the first ever held at the Renaissance Festival in Shakopee MN. To this union, his daughter, Andrea would be born.
Dave worked for many years as a circuitboard designer for United Technologies. Outside of work, Dave enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to hunt and fish, as well as garden. Dave also had a fondness for animals, owning hunting dogs, and raising chickens and cows. Family mattered to Dave, and he loved to have fun with his family. He could be found with a smile on his face when he was out at the race track, where he served as crew chief for his brother and best friend, Jeff and the Auto Physics Racing Team. Jeff was the “bender”, and Dave was the “mender”. Just as Dave was blessed with a loving family, he was a blessing to them. He will be dearly missed, and he’ll always be remembered as a wonderful husband, dad, son, and brother.
Dave was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Daniel Keeney; maternal grandparents, Ray (Charlotte) Stanfley. He is survived by his wife, Marie; daughter, Andrea; parents, Milton (Doris) Keeney of Hudson; brother and best friend, Jeff, (Barb) Keeney of River Falls; grandma, Alice Keeney of Fennimore WI; dog, Duke; cow, Oreo; as well as many other relatives and numerous friends.
