Bromberg, Keenon

September 21, 1990 -February 8, 2014

Story from the Quilt:

My full name is John Keenon Bromberg, Jr. That’s Keenon with an “o.” I was named after my father, who was named after his grandfather- John F. Keenon. My parents decided to call me Keenon since my father is called John.

Now, for all of you who are called by your middle name too, you know how it feels to go through life always having others accidently calling you by your first name instead of your middle. In my case, this problem was compounded by a name that was constantly misspelled.

But, other than these two snags, I actually enjoyed my unusual name very much. And I certainly lived up to its uniqueness in every aspect of my life: from being one of the most sincerely happy-to-meet-you people you’ve ever encountered, to being one of the wittiest guys at the table, to- not least of all- being the only one in the room with the most extensive movie trivia knowledge you could imagine!

And, if I do say so myself, I never met a person who didn’t like me. You would have liked me too.

I am Keenon Bromberg.
