Keegan's younger sister, Robin Jorna, said her brother would be remembered as a wild, fun, crazy, surfing, riding, skateboarding, tattooed, artistic, party-loving local.

"He was loved by thousands across the Sunshine Coast and Queensland," she said.

"His smile was infectious as too was his personality and his love for life, family and his many friends.

"There was nothing he would not give or do to help anyone he could."

"Keegz" was a loving father to his two boys, Tyrese and Dominic, who Robin said were his world.

One of six children, he moved with his family from Yangan to Peregian Beach in 1998 as a shy teenager.

But even as a shy country kid, he soon became part of the Sunshine Coast.

Keegan was a well-known Coast tradie and owner of Oz Tiling for more than 10 years.

Keegan loved his cars and was a budding artist.

His passing leaves behind a hole in the hearts of many.

He will be forever remembered as a dearly loved father, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
