Lester McKeever, principal at the Chicago-based accounting firm Washington, Pittman, and McKeever, was honored Jan. 16 with a street renaming outside an apartment building he owned near 67th Street and Oglesby Avenue. McKeever is a civic stalwart and father of music industry executive Steve McKeever. Son McKeever is the founder of Hidden Beach Recordings, which published Jill Scott’s debut album.
The street naming was a surprise for Lester McKeever, but an honor many in his circle said he undoubtedly deserves. McKeever is pictured with his wife Nancy. Defender/Worsom Robinson
