Donald Keen, 107, passed away on Friday, November 1, 2019 in East Aurora, NY.

Born June 2, 1912 in New York City, he was the son of the late Thomas and Millbourgh (Pattersen) Keen.

Donald was educated in the New York City school system and attended Clarkson College.

He was employed by Raquette River Paper Company, St. Regis Paper Company, and was the plant comptroller at Hudson River Pulp and Paper for many years. After retirement he worked as a consultant for several paper companies. Donald enjoyed talking about growing up in New York City and all the history he had witnessed throughout the years. Donald also enjoyed spending his birthday with his great-granddaughter Wesley Ann as they shared the same birthday.

In addition to his parents, Donald is predeceased by his first wife Marion (LaVigne) Keen, his second wife Sally Keen, as well as a step-granddaughter.

Tom & Connie,
I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was a true gentleman and always so pleasant when he visited the bank. And he always, always had an interesting story to tell! Your family is in my thoughts at this very sad time.
Patti Wells Monroe, former bank employee
