Konnel Keller was born April 9th, 1990. He died on March 30th 2014, ten days before his 24th birthday. Konnel chose to walk with God at a young age. He graduated from Oakley High School in 2008 and began to farm with his father and family. Konnel had an amazing mind, loved spiky hair, sunglasses and dressing sharply. He loved to smile and play the piano. Konnel suffered with the terrible disease of addiction. In spite of the ebb and flow of darkness, God’s light in him was never hidden.
