Walter Eugene McKeithan, Jr. (Brother) of Irwin, PA departed this life on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, after a series of long illnesses. Walter was born on August 18, 1964, at Brownsville General Hospital to the late Walter E. McKeithan, Sr. and the late Virginia Hope McKeithan (Brown). As a child, he was baptized into the Christian faith at Allison Community Baptist Church where he worshipped throughout his childhood.
He graduated from Brownsville Area Senior High School in 1982. After attending California University of PA, he relocated to the DC/Virginia area and began his life long career in sales. He worked for several years as a Sales Associate with Jacobs Gardner Office Supply in Bowie, MD. In the mid-1990’s, he launched his own business, FACS, Inc., and served as a provider of office supplies and equipment to many business and government agencies throughout the DMV area. After relocating back to PA, he held sales positions with Atlantic Broadband, Priceless Auto, and other area businesses.
Like his father, he was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan and cheered for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He enjoyed playing pool, backgammon, and winning debates. He also enjoyed sampling good cuisine, but always felt his mother’s cooking was the best. He loved music of practically every genre, and was a very talented dancer. He was a huge movie buff, especially comedies because had a wicked sense of humor. Walter enjoyed making others laugh and spending time with his family and friends. Walter was a Christian who loved the Lord and had a heart for broken souls. He loved being a father, and was a friend to many often going the extra mile to help someone in need.
