I sadly heard the news from an old Barcroft friend. My condolences to Barry and Mellonie for the loss of their beloved brother and Mrs. Boling for your loving son. It has been so many years since a contact with Keith but such fond memories of our fun times as teens living in Arlington Va. Reading all the wonderful stories of lives that Keith touched is a testament of his family values that were a direct reflection by his parents love and faith. Your memory will live on through all these beautiful stories.

I worked with Eddie at Welch Funeral Home in Longview . He was a very good funeral director and he really cared for the families he served. I will always remember him giving me a pen set that he got from his mom when she worked in Washington, DC and i still have the stereo he sold me before he moved away from Longview. He ws a good man that loved his friends and his family and especially his daughter Blair. He talked about her all the time.. You will be missed buddy. Rest in peace my friend.

I remember him as Keither. Memories flooding back since early childhood, growing up together at Arlington AG, hanging out together with so many great friends and your siblings, playing board games and pool at your home, singing in Youth Choir, going to kids and youth camp, and many more! I will never forget your humor, your talents, your kindness, and your friendship!
Praying the Lord's peace and comfort to the entire Boling family.
