Ralph loved his mother!


Ralph had 11 siblings all of whom he loved dearly. Mary, Bobby, Charlene, Linda, Michael, Zada, Cathy, Chuck, Brian, and the late Chris and Patrick , all had a special place in his heart. 


After graduating from Morse High School and serving his country in the United States Navy, he put in over 2 decades at Stinson’s seafood in Bath , in which time he also met  the love of his life , Charlene Linda Barter.  The two were married in August of 1986.     Certainly his proudest achievement is his family.  Together Ralph and Charlene created a wonderful life in a loving, loyal and happy environment.  Raising 4 sons despite the devastating loss of a new born son in 1986, Andrew Clay Keenan.  Alphonse , Jason, Ralph Jr. , and Phillip Keenan feel extremely lucky and proud to have his love and influence and will never forget!
