Keenan Scot Wilson, 51, Kokomo, passed away at 7:09 am Sunday, January 3, 2021, at St. Vincent Hospital in Kokomo. He was born June 12, 1969, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of Jesse & Sallie Marie (Moore) Wilson. On September 12, 2017, he married Elizabeth Elane Andrews who survives.
Keenan was a graduate of Mount Healthy High School in Cincinnati. Before moving to Kokomo, he lived in Atlanta, Georgia. Keenan was a prolific poet and had written over 300 poems in his lifetime. He was head of the security team SAR, and a member of Congregation Yeshivat Tzion in Kokomo. Keenan was a quiet giant but when he had something to say he would say it with confidence and conviction. He was a dreamer and a spiritual man who loved as deeply as he lived. Keenan loved to travel and explore different cuisines. He was loved greatly by his congregation and we know he is never gone and that his presence will always be felt.

My heart is here to stay
Am I your forever in a day, in my dreams, you are in the mind I stay. On bending knees, the thought of you I pray, I am empty when you are away. My heart I carry you close to me as I laid, for all this one can see oh so true, one thing for sure, when it comes to love I know what to do. We never have to stand alone, our love is real, house into a home. A whisper can’t be this way, a shout from the roof tops heard everyday. The brightest light shines at night, give all you got and might. Hold the one you love tight. With my heart desire all through the night, I see my future it is bliss, wonderful like our first kiss, I shall never forget the day, how much emotion my heart for you is her to stay.
The Prophet Eliyahu, The ______ and the lonely.
