Keglovitz, Donald E. "Keg" 2/25/1930 - 5/5/2021 Battle Creek Donald Eugene Keglovitz, age 91, affectionately known to all as "Keg" passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, May 5, 2021. He was born to Helen Louise and Victor Keglovitz on February 25, 1930 in Muskegon, Michigan. Don joined the U.S. Army in January 1949 and was proud of his time served in the US Army Infantry Division as a Forward Observer during the Korean War and received a Korean Service Medal. He celebrated his service by dedicating his talents to honoring other veterans with his artwork and designing war memorials throughout his lifetime. After being honorably discharged in August 1953, Don worked for Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo as a surgical orderly while attending Western Michigan University. During his time at Borgess Hospital, one of his fondest memories was meeting Homer H. Stryker, MD who demonstrated on Don the plaster cast cutting saw that he patented. Don worked as a commercial artist for Michigan Bell Yellow Pages, and was the Art Director at the Battle Creek ENQUIRER from the mid 1960's until semi-retiring in the late 1970's. Don was a self-employed freelance artist under the business name of "Art by the Keg" for many years, creating logos and most notably creating the artwork for several of the World Hot Air Balloon Championship brochures hosted in Battle Creek. Don was a member of the Lions and AMBUCS service organizations at times throughout his working career. Don volunteered as a member of the Honor Guard at the Fort Custer Cemetery for many years and was the Commander of the VFW Post 7956 in Augusta, MI for several years. Most recently, Don served as a Resident Board Member at Lakeview Assisted Living in Battle Creek. We were blessed to have Lakeview Assisted Living provide a loving, caring, fun place for Don to live and share the last years of his life. Don enjoyed his artwork, socializing and traveling with friends, telling jokes, boating, dancing, fishing, gardening, skiing, and golfing. Don was brave, generous, gregarious. He was always full of laughter, creativity, jokes, stories, and loved to break all the rules. He was preceded in death by his wife of 32 years, Toni G. (Kent) Keglovitz; his parents; his sister, Peggy Swiatek; his brother, Victor Keglovitz; and his step-son, Gerald Schnurstein. He is survived by his daughters, Karol (Ray) Jenney of Battle Creek and Kelly (Don) Penskar of Kalamazoo; his step-daughter, Sandra Kent of Grandville; and his step-son, Steve (Marsha) Kent of Holt. Due to current government regulations, a private (by invitation only) service with full military honors will be held 12:00 noon, Monday, July 12th at the Fort Custer National Cemetery. The service will be recorded and will be posted to the funeral home website after the service. A public celebration of Don's life will follow at the Augusta VFW Post 7956 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, July 12th.
