William D. “Bird” Keller Sr., 68, returned home to the Lord on Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2023, at the Wellspan Good Samaritan Hospital in Lebanon.

He was born on Monday, Oct. 17, 1955, to the late Albert Keller Jr. and Dorothy Moudy Keller in Lebanon.

Bill was a true family man and worked hard to provide for everyone he loved. He enjoyed relaxing and watching football on Sundays, especially the Philadelphia Eagles. Bill also enjoyed watching The Andy Griffith Show and spending time with his furry companion, Uncle Charlie. When he wasn’t spending time with his family or watching football, Bill also enjoyed golfing and putting puzzles together.

He will be missed dearly by his beloved wife of 46 years, Cynthia “Cindy” Kimmel Keller; children, Vincent P. Kimmel and William D. Keller Jr.; siblings, Betty Groff, and spouse, David, John A. Keller, Richard Keller, and James Keller; and several nieces and nephews.

Bill was predeceased by his siblings, Robert Keller and Irene Keller.
