Keith Koehler

March 15, 1961 — March 2, 2018

Keith E. Koehler, age 56, of Merrill, died unexpectedly on Friday, March 2, 2018 at his residence.  Keith was born on March 15, 1961 to the late Larry Koehler and Mercedes Wiess in Merrill.  He attended Merrill High School.  Keith met Sharon Lee, and the two exchanged marriage vows on June 15, 2007 in Merrill.  She survives.

For most of his adult life, Keith worked as a laborer in various factories, until he was unable to work, due to his back injury.  He had also worked for St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, cleaning and doing routine maintenance, as well as mowing the lawn at the cemetery.  When he was younger, Keith really enjoyed fishing.  More recently, Keith liked to spend time with his wife, family and friends.  He is remembered as an easy going guy that was fun to be around.
