John Scott Keenan - KIA Vietnam

Warrant Officer John Scott Keenan
November 17, 1948 - April 22, 1970

Grew up in the Highlands on Viola Street with his grandparents, Irene & William Scott. Graduated from Lowell High School Class of 1966. Married to Anne Kelley Keenan of Bedford, NH with two children Kelley and John Scott. After six weeks in Vietnam he was killed. He was a helicopter pilot. The intersection across from the 99 on Chelmsford Street is named in his honor. He is buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Section I Lot 213.

Please remember W.O. John Keenan when you drive onto Stevens Street. Thank you sir for your service and your family has missed you I'm sure all this time. I've taken this turn so many times but I'll never take it the same again. Thank you for your service and God bless.

  1. Funnily enough, for a Writing Course we are taking at UMass Lowell Continuing Education ($30 plus books since we are over 60), my wife has written a story about the loss of her first husband in an aircraft accident and we have been discussing it just now.  In combat or in peacetime training, these losses change lives for ever.

    Thanks for this, for honoring WO John Scott Keenan.
