Beloved husband of and partner in life for almost 52 years with Stephanie Keywell; Cherished father of Julie Keywell (David Rosenbaum) and Bradley (Kim Sabin) Keywell; Loving grandfather of Jacob and Sarah Giardina, Chloe and Casey Keywell. Loved by his sister Terry Fuller and her children, Michael Fuller and Ricki (Dr. Ralph) Pagano. Sister-in-law Pam (Dr. Dick) Zakheim; and brother-in-law Michael (Dr. Barbara Dutmers) Katz, Nephew Noah Katz. Devoted son of the late Gretchen and the late Ben Keywell. Loyal friend, trusted counselor and mentor to many.

After his family, Fred took pride in founding the law firm of Keywell & Rosenfeld and in Temple Israel. Fred practiced law with integrity for 55 years. Temple was a part of Fred's life since its inception. He felt it was an honor to serve as president from 1988-1990.

Fred’s deepest passion was the University of Michigan. While he graduated from Michigan in 1956, his love for the University began when he was a child. Fred went on from U of M to graduate from Harvard Law School in 1959 but his devotion was always to the University of Michigan. He championed Michigan’s academic excellence as well as its sports teams. GO BLUE!
