Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Mark Andrew Keeley who was born at Northern Montana Hospital in Havre, Montana on October 15, 1993, and was killed on April 22, 2007, at the age of 13. We will remember him forever and longer. 

Mark was named in the long-standing tradition of Keeley boys, becoming Mark A. Keeley IV. He was the oldest of three boys born to Michelle Keeley.  He was a very bright child at an early age.  He began to walk at just over 10 months old.  Mark was active in almost every sport.  His pride and joy was playing center for his junior high football team.

Mark had a very special bond with his grandfather, "Papa," Mark A. Keeley III.   They loved to go fishing together and in the fall and winter hunted game birds, deer and antelope.  Mark started helping his Papa in the shop with his woodworking when he was just shy of two years old.  Until the day of his death Mark was still helping Papa on his many projects, including restoring a 1961 Ford Falcon.

Mark had a way of lighting up a room.  He was known as a comedian to all around him.  Mark had a shining personality and one couldn't help but smile when in his presence.  His life was a gift to all who knew him, through good times and bad.

Mark will be missed by his mother and Frank Springer, his younger brothers Jacob and Austin, his Papa and Gramma Sharon Keeley, his Nantie Lori and Uncle Steve Siefert, as well as his cousins Melanie and Baby Joshua, whom Mark did not have the pleasure of meeting, his Nantie Denice and Uncle Doug Malley, and cousins Jim and Zach.  Mark and Jim were only 10 months apart and were very close throughout all the years of Mark's life.
