Industry legend Fred Keenan passes away at age 101
Fred Keenan passed away last Wednesday, Aug. 17 just two weeks shy of his 102nd birthday. Keenan gave a lifetime of service to the plumbing industry as well as his community.
He served as president of the American Supply Association and our industry’s highest honor, the Fred V. Keenan Lifetime Achievement Award, bears his name and recognizes those individuals who have distinguished themselves by serving to build a better PHCP-PVF industry.
Services for Keenan are scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 8, at the Our Savior Parish & USC Caruso Catholic Church Center, 844 West 32nd Street, Los Angeles, Calif. 90007 beginning at 10:00 a.m. Lunch is to follow at the Jonathan Club, 545 South Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90071. Because parking is limited at the church, people are asked if possible to park at the Jonathan Club from which a shuttle service will be provided to and from the church.
In lieu of flowers, his daughter, Susan Nyby, has asked that donations be made in Fred Keenan’s name to either the ASA Karl Neupert Endowment Fund or his local community charity, The Glendale Community Free Health Clinic, 134 North Kenwood St., Glendale, CA 91206.
