Bill, of Whitmore Lake, a beloved brother, uncle, and friend, entered eternal life Monday afternoon at Ascension Providence Hospital, Novi, following a month-long battle with COVID. He was only 52 years old.
Bill was born Christmas Eve, 1968, to the late Donald and Bernadette "Connie" (Conroy) McKeever. He was a 1987 Farmington High School graduate and went on to serve his country in the US Army from September 8, 1987, to September 7, 1989. He most recently was a Senior Escrow Officer at Devon Title Agency.
Bill was a devout Catholic, deeply rooted in his faith. He was raised in Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Community and was most recently a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Parish in Brighton. He was a life-long member of St. Francis Council Knights of Columbus in Farmington, having served as Past-Grand Knight from 2005-07, as well as the leadership position of District Deputy, and currently Faithful Navigator of the 4th Degree Assembly. Bill believed in the power of prayer, prayed the rosary frequently and proudly and generously supported numerous pregnancy centers. He enjoyed golf, boating, drinking beer, and Michigan Wolverine football. In addition to his faith, he was deeply devoted to his family, specifically his siblings and nieces. May his kind and generous soul rest in peace.
