Daniel Joseph McKeever encouraged his grandchildren to march through 412 Kent Road singing “John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt,” because his name was our name, too. He owned a green shirt with white lettering that read I Feel Swell. It’s a phrase he’d say in response to any, “How are you?”

His yellow, cigar-spotted sweater and overwhelming personality.

His love of cream soda. An undeniable faith.

This website is one more way to keep his memory alive.
