Eric William Keller, age 63, of Metamora, unexpectedly went to be home with the Lord on Sunday December 5, 2021. Eric was born January 22, 1958 in Sacramento, CA, the youngest of Charles and Hilda (Calonje) Keller.
He graduated from high school in Tucson, AZ in 1976. He then went on to enroll into the Air Force in 1980 and was deployed to Korea. He served from 1980-1989 where he met his wife, Marcia L. Sepanak in Ft Meade, MD in 1983. They married in a beautiful courthouse on January 18, 1985. In 1989, they moved to Michigan to be closer to family. They resided in Metamora for the last 27 years. Eric loved God. He was a great husband, wonderful father and exceptional grandfather, family man and friend. Eric wanted to spread joy and laughter, he never could tell the same joke twice.
