Keon battled sickle cell his entire life.  Although he was in pain most of the time, he made sure to always have a smile on his face and made the best of his life with his wife and children. 

Keon graduated from Job Corp with an electrician license. He was a very loving man, beyond generous and cared tremendously about others. He was very giving and always wanted to help others any way that he was able to. To know Keon was to know inspiration, the love and kindness he spread was very admirable. 

Keon Anthony Starnes “Kas” was a die-hard Eagles fan! As Kas would say “We bleed green”! 

Keon’s family would like to send a special thank you to all the Doctors and Nurses that cared for him at the Cancer Center in Rhode Island Hospital. 

A burial ceremony will be set at a later date.
