Stanley Pace Keen, 73, of Burkesville, Kentucky, passed away on Monday, September 7, 2015 at The Medical Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He was born in Glasgow, Kentucky on Monday, January 5, 1942, the son of the late Maurice Clifton “Doc” Keen, Sr. and Patty Nell Pace Keen.

“Pace” or “Pacey”, as he was affectionately known, loved life and family. After graduating from Kentucky Military Academy he moved to the Virginia Beach, Virginia area where he attended Old Dominion University earning both BA and BS degrees. He fell in love with the beach area and resided there for many years, but later returned home to Kentucky, surrounded by generations of family whom he loved beyond words. Pace never stopped learning and was a brilliant thinker who loved to read. He was the definition of a true gentleman who was quick to share his opinion and speak truth to whoever would listen. Owner of Pace Keen Construction, his craft and stamp of handy work is spread from Virginia to Kentucky. During his earthly journey, he was a member in fellowship at Burkesville Baptist Church in Burkesville. The gift of his character, moral compass and values will forever be passed on through generations to come. Pace was lovingly welcomed into the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ, where he waits for those who love him and will keep his memory forever in their hearts.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, M. C. “Little Doc” Keen, Jr. and his sister, Patty Pace “Teencie” Keen Cash.

He is survived by his son, Christopher Todd (and Lisa) Woolston of Virginia Beach, Virginia, his sisters, Rebecca “Becky” (and Sam Dudley) Gray of Burkesville, Mary Pace (and Jack) Grant of Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts and his grandchildren, Danielle, Asja, Kayla and Taylor Woolston.

Funeral services were conducted on Saturday, September 12, 2015 in the Memory Chapel of Norris-New Funeral Home in Burkesville, Kentucky with Rev. C. Todd Woolston officiating. Two of Pace’s favorite songs were sung by his granddaughter, Taylor Woolston with piano accompaniment by Libby Mullinix.

In lieu of flowers, contributions appreciated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
