March 23, 1954 - February 18, 2021
Gordon Wayne Keller, Sr. (aka GoGo, Dad, Poppy, Uncle Gordon, BG) age 66, of St. Augustine, Florida went home to be with his Lord on Thursday, February 18, 2021 after courageously fighting cancer. Gordon was born and raised in St. Augustine, FL. He attended Evelyn Hamblen Elementary, Ketterlinus Jr. High, and graduated from St. Augustine High School. He furthered his education at St. Johns River Community College and the Luther Rice Seminary. He joined the Florida National Guard immediately following high school and served his country from 1972-1978. In 1973, Gordon married the love of his life, Linda Blalock Keller. He had his general contractor’s license and worked for his dad at Keller Construction for almost 18 years. In 1989, he surrendered to the ministry and began working on staff at Calvary Baptist Church with the youth and singles. He was licensed and ordained into the Gospel ministry in 1990. He served as pastor of Parker Road Baptist Church, Gainesville, for thirteen years; First Baptist Church, Branford for four years, and First Baptist Church, Chiefland for nine and a half years. Gordon retired in 2019 and looked forward to spending time with his family. His children and grandchildren brought him great joy. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, fellowshipping, and eating homemade ice cream. His main goal in life, though, was to share Jesus with everyone he met until the day he died. He was preceded in death by his father, James Keller, Jr., and sister, Nancy. Gordon is survived by his wife of 47 years, Linda Keller; son, Wayne (Kelley) Keller, daughter, Robyn Silcox; grandchildren, Hayden (Alyssa) and Payton Silcox, Ethan and Bethany Keller; his mother, Jean Keller; brother, James (Donna) Keller; sister, Stephanie (Mark) Evans, and his much loved nephews and nieces.
