Daniel O'Bryan Keating
Daniel O’Bryan Keating, age 31, of Kansas City, died Sunday October 16, 2016 of heart failure.
Daniel was born on July 23, 1985, in Manhattan, Kansas. Daniel worked passionately with his father and sisters at Keating and Associates and in his free time volunteered for many charities including being a junior board member for Kansas City's Kids TLC. His other passion was cheering on his beloved Jayhawks and Chiefs, and spending hours laughing and making memories with family and friends.
Daniel will be remembered for his ability to make you feel like the most loved and cared for person in the room. His kindness, joyfulness and love for living life to the fullest is an inspiration to us all. He had a heart of gold and his smile and sense of humor made everyone around him fill with joy and laughter.
Daniel lit up a room with his amazing and infectious smile. His warm and fun personality touched so many of his family and friends lives. Daniel brought so much joy to everyone he came in contact with and was truly one of the most compassionate people. He truly made the world a better place!
