Keith Chapman

April 9, 2019

Keith Alan Chapman, age 54, of Marysville, passed away Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family following a courageous battle with leukemia. An associate and partner with his father, Ron, of Chapman Excavating since before he even had his driver’s license, he was known state-wide for pond building, basement and driveway construction, grading, gravel hauling and much more in the earth moving industry. Known by those closest to him as “Zeke” or “Pop,” he was a skilled heavy machinery mechanic and “could fix anything.” A 1983 graduate of Marysville High School, he attended Millcreek Church of Christ and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed fishing, mushroom and arrowhead hunting, camping and sprint car racing. He was a loyal Cleveland Browns fan. He was most loyal though, to his friends and his family. He was a deeply devoted husband, dad, grandpa, son, brother and uncle. Keith was born January 10, 1965 in Marion. He was preceded in death by twin grandsons, Colin and Griffin and by a sister-in-law, Lisa Rae Hauser.
