Keyshawn Ware was born into this life on January 12, 1999 in Camden, Arkansas to Danny Ray “Cadillac” Ware and Londa Wright Garrard. He was an active and lively baby who warmed the hearts of all he encountered.
Keyshawn grew up to be a smart, loving and talented young man. He accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of Holly Grove Baptist church where he once served as an usher.
He was a 2017 graduate of Bearden High School. Keyshawn excelled as a student and athlete; playing both the center position in football and third base in baseball. Intelligent, handsome and loyal, he formed life-long friendships. He was currently a student in the welding program at SAU Tech. His energetic personality and pursuit for the next best thing was a magnet for all those who wanted his energy to rub off on them.
He was an employee of the Arkansas Electric Co-Op where he worked as a saw operator. He was task driven and learned fast. A true “country boy”, his hobbies included duck hunting, fishing and riding his four wheeler. During his twenty seasons of life, he made friends across all walks of life.
