Keith Coning

Keith Coning, age 82, of Eaton, Ohio, passed away Wednesday, November 11, 2020, at Grandview Hospital in Dayton.  He was born July 12, 1938, in Richmond, Indiana, to the late Kenneth and Ethel (Mattix) Coning.  Keith was a graduate of Jackson Township High School class of 1956. After serving in the United States Air Force, he completed a career as a pipefitter with AK Steel in Middletown, Ohio.  Farming was an important part of Keith's life and he partnered with father-in-law Stanley Clark and Fred (Carol) Kerler for many years.  Keith is survived by former wife Margorie (Clark) Coning of Eaton, Ohio, sons Chris (Angi) Coning of Tipp City, Ohio, and Michael (Christine) Coning of Greenfield, Indiana; grandchildren Max Coning, Ladia Coning, and Alexandra Coning; and great grand-daughter Zion Bertke. He is also survived by his sister Rita Rohlfs of Vacaville, California, niece Jill (Rohlfs) Sullivan, nephew Sam Rohlfs and many cousins.  Keith was preceded in death by his parents and his brother-in-law Mel Rohlfs of Vacaville. Keith was a kind, generous man who will live in our hearts and memories forever. Due to the current pandemic and health concerns for extended family and friends, a private funeral service will be held by the immediate family.  Burial will be at Mound Hill Cemetery in Eaton with military honors provided by the Preble County Honor Guard and US Air Force.  Girton Schmidt & Boucher Gard Funeral Home, Eaton is assisting with arrangements.
