Obituary

Keith J. Demers, age 59, died peacefully Saturday, December 18, 2021, at his residence surrounded by his family. 

Keith was born on October 10, 1962, in Lewiston, Maine, to the late Raymond and Jane (Brown) Demers. He was a 1981 graduate of Gahanna Lincoln High School and then earned his bachelor’s degree from Muskingham University. He excelled at football and academics at Muskingham and was honored to be named All Ohio Athletic Conference in 1984. 

He accomplished a great deal in collegiate athletics and continued to excel in his professional career at Edwards Jones by becoming a national leader providing trusted financial security advice for his many clients and his beloved family. He had a relentless pursuit for improving life. He exemplified much of what it meant to be a classic man, a man of faith and a dedicated provider for his family. 

Survivors include his immediate family of Dr. Marion (Couden) Demers and children, Jacob, Samantha, Nik, and Sydney Demers; one sister, Susan (Greg) LeBerth, and one brother John Demers; and many nieces, nephews, and other relatives. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Andrea Demers; and one sister Elizabeth Butts.
