Keenan Rockhold

OTTUMWA — Keenan Allen Robert Rockhold, 1-year-old son of Ryan and Jessica Johnston Rockhold of 1421 Casa Blanca Lane, passed away at 12:32 p.m. January 22, 2014, at Ottumwa Regional Health Center.

Born January 21, 2013, in Ottumwa, Keenan was the littlest, biggest Hawkeye fan. He loved to watch football and basketball, but his favorite would be football as he would throw the ball up and say “touchdown!” He loved his cars, planes, farm and animals. His best friends were his sisters; he would follow them wherever they were going.

Surviving are his parents, Ryan and Jessica Rockhold; his sisters, Sydney Lynn Rockhold and Gracey Anne Rockhold; grandparents, “Papa” Robin and “Grammy” Sue Anne Fitzsimmons, “Papa” Jeff and “Mamaw” Tammy Johnston, “Papa” Lynn and “Grandma” Linda Rockhold; great-grandparents, Ruby and Dean Johnston, Joe and Lori Sloan, Joan Sloan, Emery and Phyllis Dean, Gary and Jane Underwood; aunts and uncles, Keisha (Tyrone) Lobberecht, Stacey (Eric) Barnett, MaKenzie Johnston, Lizabeth (Joe) Florez and Dakota Johnston; cousins, Xavier Lobberecht and Diego Florez; great-uncle, Tony (Anita) Barker; and so many, many more great-aunts and great-uncles and cousins. Also many, many friends, including special friends, Don and Ashley Sly, Joe and Chelsey Rozendaal, Mike and Robin Luke.

Keenan was preceded in death by great-grandparents, Robert and Selma Barker, Creede and Clara Mae Rockhold and “Nanny” Barbie Skinner.

Funeral arrangements are pending at Reece Funeral Home.

Memorials may be made to the family.
