Paul S. Keenan, Jr. was born November 23, 1946 to Paul S. Keenan and Adeline Gosch Keenan in Fort Riley, Kansas. By his own admission, Paul was raised an "army brat", living in Germany for the first eleven years of his life and then living in many different locations according to where his father was stationed. By the time Paul graduated from Beavercreek High School in Dayton, Ohio, he had attended 23 different schools.
When Paul was thirteen months old he contracted spinal meningitis which left him deaf. Paul attended Galludet University in Washington, D.C. from 1965 to 1967. He then worked as an architectural draftsman until he landed the job that he has held for the past 30 years, Inventory Management Specialist for the Federal Government, Department of Defense, Defense Logistics Agency in charge of support for the B-1, B-2, B-52, and C/KC-135 bombers.
After retiring from the DOD in January 2004, Paul and his wife Colleen moved to Rural Valley, Pennsylvania.
Paul has been the recipient of many awards during his 30 years with the government, but perhaps his greatest accolade was the award that he received in 1990 from President Bush. "The Presidential Award for the Outstanding Federal Employee of the Year with a Disability."
