He also dressed in his buckskins at the 1800's Rendezvous every year at Hester's Farm in Walkerton. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion Post in North Liberty, IN.
Lon was predeceased by his parents, sisters, Nettie Jean Patrich and Beverly Teske and one nephew, Carl Patrick.
Survivors include sisters, Irene (Roy) Daniel of California and Barb Burket of Walkerton; his brother, Larry Keehn of Rhode Island; two nephews; one niece; two great-nephews; one great-niece (triplets); and his furbaby, Thor.
