Dewitt C. Kehoe

Dewitt Clinton Kehoe, age 78, of Water Valley, MS went to his forever home Sunday, August 13, 2023 at the Yalobusha County Nursing Home in Water Valley, MS. He was born November 30, 1944, in Water Valley, MS to the late Curtis and Clyde (Hollinger) Kehoe.

Dewitt was a very quiet, humble, and down to earth man who was happy living a simple life. Living his entire life in Water Valley, he began his career, and spent over twenty years working at the Kellwood Manufacturing plant in Coffeeville, MS where he would become an inspector. In 1973, he would marry the love of his life, Vivian Louise Davis and spend forty-two wonderful years together before her passing in 2015. Dewitt was a piano player and loved to share his talent whenever he could, especially with his church family at Mt. Liberty. He also enjoyed singing, oil painting, and spending time with his beloved dog Dolly. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.

Visitation is planned for Saturday, August 19, 2023, in the Gardiner Room at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. Funeral Service will follow at 1:00 PM with Bro. Billy Childs officiating. Burial will be in Mt. Liberty Cemetery.
