"Johnny Keith" was the 6th son of Gilbert and Edna (Widel) Lammers and was
born in Boonville on Sept. 9,1954. He lived in Boonville, Marshall, Higginsville,
Sedalia and moved back to Boonville in December of 1993. While living in Boonville,
he was supported by the loving care of Unlimited Opportunities' staff.
Despite the various moves, John was always "at home" if he had his "morning
cup of coffee". He worked at Boonslick Industries for many years,
doing assembly work and taking charge of break-time refreshments.
Upon retirement, John's days were filled with his favorite friends and movies at
UOI Day Program. He was also a fan of UOI weekly field trips, yearly summer
Camp, vacation trips, and watching game shows. One of his favorite activities
was going to MU football games with his brothers, Tom and Wayne. Whether
MU was winning or losing, John loved to loudly cheer them on.
His gentleness and loving ways will be sadly missed by many loved ones.
John's parents preceded him in death and he is survived by 8 brothers and
sisters: Gary (Barbara) Lammers, Wayne (Sharon) Lammers, Priscilla (Tom)
Nick, Mike (Theresa) Lammers, Tom (Gail) Lammers, Phil (Sarah) Lammers, Susan (Dan) Bowlin,
and Nick (Ginny) Lammers. His family also includes many nieces, nephews,
and numerous cousins plus all of his family at Unlimited Opportunities, Inc.
