ELYSBURG — With deepest sorrow we inform you of the tragic loss of our son, Keegan Joshua Shultz, of Elysburg, on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

Keegan, 17, was a student at Southern Columbia Area High School.

Keegan had a passion for playing football, especially defensive end. His favorite football team to watch was the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was also an avid hockey fan and loved watching the Pittsburgh Penguins. Keegan’s sarcastic sense of humor and cynical outlook on life will forever be remembered by all who knew him.

Keegan will be greatly missed by his parents: mother, Christine Kemmerer and husband, Michael, and father, Matthew Shultz and wife, Janelle; twin sister, Kaylee; brothers, Anthony, Landon, Jordan, Kaiden and Xander; and sister, Sierra; grandmother, Linda Edwards; grandparents, Richard and Gloria Wenner and Leonard and Peggy Shultz; loving aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous classmates, teammates and friends.

Suicide doesn’t guarantee things won’t get worse. It eliminates the possibility of things ever getting better.
