Keith was born on September 2, 1973 to Dave and Kathy. He was the first grandchild on Kathy’s side and a baby boy at that. He was the first of three son’s that Dave and Kathy would welcome into the family. Keith loved the outdoors and all that knew him would say he was most comfortable there. He made sure his children knew about the outdoors and used it to help them learn about life. Keith’s humor added to this learning experience for not only the children but all that came in contact with him. Keith could make a whole room laugh for hours on end and he always had one more story that in his words ‘you were going to like this one’.
Keith was a member of the local labors union doing both sheetrock and general construction. He was well respected in the trades by all who came in contact with him. Keith also had a gift with helping others. A recent example of this was Keith provided assistance to a local church as they begin to build their new home of worship. There were many more examples, to many to list here but he never shunned away from helping.
Keith is survived by his son Tate, daughter Delayney, mother Kathy [Jim], father Dave [Teresa], brothers Kurt and Kevin, grandmothers Audrey and Dottie, along with many uncles, aunts, nephews, niece and cousins.
