Keller, Carl2CARL H. KELLER

The story began January 21, 1943 born to the parents Henry and Marie Keller of Forest Park, Illinois.  Later Carl would have two siblings, the late Jean Keller Flando and Carol Keller of Westchester.  There were many other relatives as well.

He lived in Forest Park and went to Proviso East High School graduating in 1961 and 2 years of Junior College in Chicago.

Carl met Mary E. Brust in 1961 – their Senior year of High School – and they married on June 5, 1965.

Carl had the most wonderful friends from Grammar School – over 60 years of friendship – very rare.  Bill and Claire, Al and Vera, Joe and Cookie are among those rare friends and other best friends include Bonnie and Tony and Chuck and Marylou.

Carl and Mary had two children, Michael Keller of Romeoville and Tracy Aultman of Bolingbrook.

They went on to have 6 grandchildren: Daniel (fiancé, Lisa), Eric (Rachel), Ryan, Samantha, Nicholas and Tommy; and 4 great-grandchildren, Layne, Nicholas, Lucas, and Valerie.

Carl was an avid golfer and had 5 Holes in One.  He had a number of golf buddies.

He worked in the printing industry his whole life; owned Cooperative Publishing Company, Data Book Services and had retired in 2002.

We could not have asked for a more wonderful Husband, Father, Grandpa and Great-Grandpa.
