Craig Nicholas Keller

8/14/1977 – 8/10/2020

Craig Keller passed away in Fort Worth, Texas on August 10, 2020 at the age of 42. He was a second born son of Edward Dennis Keller and Barbara (Champion) Keller. Craig grew up on the Keller Sheep Ranch and attended school in Montrose, Colorado. He received a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Cincinnati Christian University.

Craig had a passion for missions, especially for Colegio Biblico in Eagle Pass and for the country of Myanmar.

He married the love of his life Esther Nah Leme-Keller in Myanmar on 11/29/2008.

Esther recalls writing a paper in college about “The Children”. Craig and Esther were only friends at that time. She asked him to help her with a paper about kids. He started the paper with “kids are cute but only in a picture.” However, after they got married they had two girls. Esther reminded him about the paper and he now said his kids were the exception. They were cuter, smarter, and more exceptional than any others.

He enjoyed reading and watching cartoons with them.

Craig was proceeded in death by his father, Edward Dennis Keller. He is survived by wife, Esther Nah Leme-Keller, daughters, Jini AhnaRei Keller (6 years) and Sini RacheLynn Keller (3 years).
