Torrington >> Edward C. Keepin, 95, died Friday, November 30th, 2012. Edward was born in Torrington, CT in 1917, a son of the late Florence (Rosenbeck) and Charles Simeon Keepin and was married to Lyn Gauthier. After his discharge from the US Army Air Force in 1945 he made his home in Harwinton CT until moving to Emeritus Assisted Living in Torrington in 2008.

He attended Torrington High School and graduated in 1936. During his lifetime, he was employed by Appraisal Consultants of Connecticut and the Federal Housing Administration until his retirement in 1979 when he began his own business as an appraiser.

As a true gentleman of many talents and a quiet daredevil, he had a passion for the outdoors. He spent his early days skiing and ski jumping. He played tennis into his 80's, as well as ballroom dancing and was an avid card player.

Edward leaves behind three children, Pam and her husband Hank Fitzgerald of New Hartford, Paula Primeau of Plainville, and David Keepin of Harwinton. In addition, his grandchildren Bryan Schafroth of Golden CO, Aaron Schafroth of New Hartford, Jessica Primeau and her husband Steve Koppel of Middletown, Clint Keepin of Glendale CA and Matt Keepin of Harwinton.

Private Services with burial at Hillside Cemetery will be at the convenience of the family.
