ZACHARY PAUL KELLER Oct. 2, 1988 – Jan. 25, 2018

Zachary Paul Keller of Los Alamos passed away on January 25, 2018 in Albuquerque. He succumbed to injuries from a car accident near Santa Clara Pueblo the previous evening. He was 29.

Mr. Keller was born on October 2, 1988 in Boulder, CO to his parents, Russell and Sandra Keller. He moved to Los Alamos in 2003, and graduated from Los Alamos High School in 2007. He studied at NMSU in Las Cruces and UNM in Albuquerque before returning to Los Alamos. He worked as a jack-of-all-trades: a handyman, mover, dental office assistant, and utility maintenance man.

Mr. Keller was known for his warm, compassionate character and strong work ethic. He had contagious smiles and “the best bear hugs.” He made fast friends of every person he met, no matter their station in life.

Mr. Keller is survived by his parents and sister Jeannie of Los Alamos; his brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Ashley Keller of Westminster, CO; and three nieces and one nephew.

A memorial for Mr. Keller will take place on Saturday, February 3rd at 2 p.m. at White Rock Baptist Church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Mr. Keller’s life. Another memorial will take place in Colorado, with details to be determined.
