Henry Steven Keller
Henry Steven Keller formerly of Summit, New Jersey died January 11, 2023 at his home in New Providence, New Jersey. He was 89. Henry was born the younger of two children to Florence (Mohler) and Eldon on March 14, 1933 in Shaker Heights, Ohio and was predeceased by his sister, Cynthia.
Henry was the anchor of his family – a loving and attentive husband to his wife Susan (Nutter) for 67 years, a role model father to Cynthia, Steven, and Will, and a fun and generous grandfather.
Henry graduated from Amherst College in 1955 and received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1959. Between schooling, Henry was in the army, training in Kentucky and then stationed in Hanau, Germany. Upon his return, Henry joined Kidder, Peabody where he worked in corporate finance for his entire career until retiring in 1988.
After retirement, Henry was a dedicated volunteer and devoted many hours as a member and then chairman of both the Overlook Hospital and Overlook Foundation boards. In 2007 he received the Overlook Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, Henry was an instrumental part of Summit’s Pep Foundation.
Henry was also an enthusiastic traveler, visiting dozens of countries over the years, often with his family in tow. He loved Southport, Maine where he spent every summer since 1987 sitting on the deck enjoying the view, entertaining friends and family, boating around the islands, and eating lobster. Other passions included bridge and racquet sports.
Henry is survived by his wife Susan, daughter Cynthia (husband Tom and children Amy and Tyler Henry), son Steven (wife Tracy and children Peter, Matthew, and Henry), and son Will.
Gifts in his memory may be sent to the Other Fellow First Foundation, care of Brett Haire, 47 Summit Avenue, Summit, New Jersey 07901.
