July 9, 1951June 12, 2021

Theodore (Mac) McCoy Keener III , 69, of Winter Garden, FL passed away Saturday June 12th, 2021. He was born in Augusta, GA on July 9, 1951 to the late William and Annette Keener. He was married to Janelle Keener on April 8, 1977. The two met, married and gave birth to their beautiful twins while in nursing school. He began his career as a Golf Pro but later decided to attend nursing school at the University of South Carolina Aiken. He began his 34 year nursing career in Augusta, GA moving to Winter Garden in 1989. Ten years later, he began his home health agency, Care America HHC which was one of the proudest moments of his career. He operated Care America HHC until his retirement in 2011. He considered those who worked with him at Care America part of an extended family. Upon retirement, Mac focused his time on being PaPa to his grandchildren who he picked up from school everyday and shared stories of their daily adventures. He really enjoyed his great grands when they came to visit PaPa Mac. When you could make Mac really laugh, he would laugh so hard he cried and his laugher was so infectious. He was a mischievous child and stories of his childhood/teenage years are legendary in the family. If you could get him going he would tell stories for hours. Mac is preceded in death by his parents, William P. Keener and Annette Black Keener, and brother, John Keener. Mac is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Janelle Keener; children, Kelsey Arons (Mark), Brandalin Smith (Bruce), and Melissa Keener; grandchildren, Caitlyn Jones (Justin), Hayden Smith, Gavin Smith, and Briana Keener; great grandchildren, Jordan Jones Jaclyn Jones and his brothers and sisters, Richard Keener (Lois), Katherine Harris (Michael), and Elizabeth Persons. In lieu of formal service a Celebration of Life Gathering is planned in Winter Garden at a later date.
