Sherwood was employed in the transportation industry for over 40 years with Akers Motor Lines, Central Motor Lines, Roadway Express and Lancer Transportation. After retiring from the trucking industry, he opened his own shop, Fix It Right Garage. He was a great mechanic and enjoyed working on all types of cars and trucks for the public, as well as his family and friends. Out of the kindness and generosity of his heart, he often fixed many vehicles for people that could not afford their repairs. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Maggie Bell Linker Keener; a son, Sherwood Roger Keener, Jr.; four brothers, J.C. Keener, Clifford Keener, Hyrum Keener and Reid Keener; and three sisters, Doris Lynn, Sarah Hensen and Lorrine Wong. Sherwood is survived by two daughters, Kay Keener Smith and husband Butch and Gail Keener Croom, both of Kannapolis; two sons, Rex Keener and wife Patti of Salisbury and Gene Downum and wife Sarah of Charlotte; eight grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. Special thank you and appreciation for the wonderful care from Hospice and personal caregivers, Mary Bryant, Sheila Padilla and Gary Griffin. The family requests that memorials may be donated to Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County, 5003 Hospice Lane, Kannapolis, NC 28081.
