Keeney remembered as tireless advocate for fellow vets

Email

Durbin Keeney, who spent years as a tireless advocate for veterans in the Northland — finding them homes, connecting them with services and ensuring their service was recognized — died early Sunday morning at age 65.

Keeney, who died from cardiac-related health complications, was a Vietnam War veteran and served as regional director of the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans for more than a decade before relinquishing that post in September 2011.
