Gregory T. Keffeler

November 19, 1964 – April 1, 2024

Greg Keffeler was born on November 19, 1964, in Omaha, Nebraska to parents Paul and Mary Jane Keffeler.  Greg graduated from Westside High School in 1983 and earned his bachelor’s degree from University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 1987.

We are deeply saddened by Greg’s passing. He was a remarkable individual whose charisma and talent touched the lives of many. From his successful tenure as a National Sales Manager in the family business to his inventive spirit that led to a patented tool, Greg’s contributions were truly one of a kind.

His legacy extends to Finnegan’s Bar & Grill.  For over 20 years Greg put his love of entertaining, cooking and celebrating life on full display.  It was an atmosphere that he worked hard to make comfortable and inviting for all to enjoy that mirrored his warm and inviting personality.  His ability to make everyone feel valued and his infectious smile will forever be remembered.  Greg had such an ease about him that anyone who crossed his path immediately felt included and important.   He had a talent for putting a smile on your face with just a few words.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Greg had a passion for the outdoors, fishing, four-wheeling and especially hunting with his cherished “dog children”- Buster, Finn, Sig and Pitch.  Greg had been spending his time in retirement traveling and relaxing with his fur babies.

Greg is survived by parents, Paul and Mary Jane Keffeler; two brothers, Dave Keffeler, Mark Keffeler; sister, Julie (Mark) Lyons; nephews, Tyler (Jamie) Keffeler, Jack Lyons, Cole Lyons; niece, Claire Lyons; and numerous family and friends who will miss his mischievous grin, kind heart and warm laugh.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to Nebraska Humane Society.

VISITATION: Tuesday, April 9th, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by FUNERAL SERVICE at 1 p.m., at West Center Chapel.

Interment, Resurrection Cemetery.

    To the Keffeler and Lyons families, Carrie and I are thinking of you all during this time. We were saddened by the news of Greg’s passing. He was always a burst of laughter and joy that would brighten the room every Thanksgiving. Please accept our sympathies during this difficult time.

    Greg, where do I start? I’m sorry I never told you how special you are to me and how much I love you. Thank you for always being there for me. All those mornings at Finnegan’s helping me with my math and science homework, You’re the reason I passed college!
    All the amazing, birthday dinners with you. So many kind acts, you’re the best friend a person could have. Never in a million years did I think this could happen to you.
    I just want God to rewind the clock back one week so I can say “I’m sorry. I love you. I’ve always loved you.” This is going to be a tough pill to swallow and I will always regret not making that phone call.
    The one who got away, I’ll miss you and will never forget you.
    You touched the world in ways you never knew, and gave people chances when others would not.
    You’re one of a kind, Greg, and even now, still teaching me life lessons.
    Your friend, Trish

    Wow, I’m in shock. Greg was truly awesome! Finnegans was my “safe place “ to drink or dine at. I met my husband there- Greg will be missed by many- I have no doubt
