Devin valued education and was a lifelong learner graduating from Riggs High School in 1988, St. John’s University in 1992 and earning an MBA from Xavier University in 2005. Devin had a great compassion for the marginalized of society, especially those hurting or in need. Devin’s compassion for people may have guided his professional decision to work in the field of healthcare and over the years Devin worked for a number of companies including Cardinal Health , Bon Secours Ascension Health and Advocate Health Care in Chicago, IL
Devin McKeever was a great conversationalist with a quick wit and a gift for making those he was with feel appreciated and heard. We laughed recently about his short stint as a server and how perhaps his employer would have preferred he tell fewer stories and sell more drinks. Story telling came naturally to Dev however and he was proud of his Irish heritage. Traveling with his parents through Ireland was a favorite life event for Devin who often recalled memories of the trip.
God, family and friends were the center of Devin’s life and he was incredibly proud of his nephews and niece. He loved to laugh, take pictures and make memories. Being a good son, brother, uncle, godfather, and friend were so important to Devin it seems he struggled to share his own personal battle with pain and depression. We mourn Devin’s death by suicide but trust in God’s love and mercy as we celebrate his life.
