Homer Kenneth Keller, of Londonderry Village, Palmyra, went home to be with his Lord on Oct. 9, 2020. He was the husband of the late Dorothy T. Keller, who died in 2013.

He retired in 1985 as supervisor in the almond processing department of Hershey Foods after 40 years of employment. He was a member of the Bible Fellowship Church of Lebanon. Homer loved the Lord and would memorize the Psalms and recite them as he and his wife, Dottie, would walk five miles a day except Sundays. He loved to share the scriptures and was well-versed in the Bible. Homer and his wife, Dottie, traveled to many countries overseas and, for eight years, documented all covered bridges east of the Mississippi.

He was a loving father to his daughter, Barbara K. Snell, wife of James Snell, of Manheim, and was so proud of his grandson, Kevin M. Snell, and wife Kelly, of Gainesville, VA, and granddaughter, Holly C. Snell, of Laguna Niguel, CA. He loved visits with his great-grandsons, Kyler, Kamren, and Chase Snell and great-granddaughter, Peyton Snell. He is also survived by brothers, Walter K. Keller, of Cornwall, and David M. Keller, of E. Stroudsburg. He was preceded in death by brothers, Earl F. Keller, Arthur M. Keller, Sr., Robert L. Keller, Wilbur Keller, Sr., Marvin Keller, and Stanley Keller; and two sisters, Thelma L. Walter, and Shirley Ickes.
