5/29/28 - 1/15/2008

Robert Dewey Keen age 79, local home builder and land developer, went home to be with The Lord on Tuesday, January 15, 2008 at his home in Mustang after courageously struggling for nine years following a tractor accident. He was born May 29, 1928 in Carter, OK to Jim and Lillie Rose (Riley) Keen. He spent a short time in the Carter/Retrop area before moving with his family to Oklahoma City in 1936. Dewey was a loving husband and father. Dewey served his country as a merchant marine and was a longtime, active member of Grace Assembly of God Church in Oklahoma City. Dewey worked 17 years at Wilson Foods before going into land development and home building. He was well known for quality homes and fair dealings. Preceded in death by his parents, one brother Rev. J.D. Keen, he is survived by wife of nearly 60 years Irene of the home in Mustang, one daughter Rhonda Barcum and husband Robert of OKC, four sons Ronald of Ft. Worth, TX, Jimmy and wife Susie of Ardmore, Terry and wife Judith of Yukon and Robert Dewey, Jr. and wife Diana of West Monroe, LA. Also, by one sister Beatrice Jenkins of Monroe, TX, nine grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. The family wishes to extend its thanks to Dewey’s relatives and friends who supported and helped Dewey along his journey. Also a special thanks to all the doctors and support staff, as well as Mercy Hospice, all of whom worked diligently to keep Dewey as comfortable as possible over these last nine years. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the “Building Fund” at Grace Assembly of God Church. Services will be held at 2pm on Friday, January 18, 2008 at Grace Assembly of God Church 2212 SW 55th, OKC with interment following in Chapel Hill Memory Gardens, OKC under the direction of McNeil’s Mustang Funeral Service, Mustang, Oklahoma.
