Tow truck driver Don (Donny) Keeler passed away near the end of May after approximately a year-long battle with kidney disease.
 
Keeler was employed with Titan Towing for more than ten years and various community members gathered on Sunday (Jun.3) to remember him.
 
"He stuck it out until the very end with us and we just wanted to pay our respects," said Jason DeVries with Titan Towing.

"Towing and truck driving was his life," said DeVries. "He was a fun-loving guy and a great employee."
