Keith became very special to me quickly. His love of music, dancing and singing was apparent everytime I saw him. We would listen to music on my phone with his beloved Moose Family. He asked about my family by name each time I saw him. He brought my grand daughter a Michigan (symbol of state) tee shirt just a couple of weeks ago. He brought donations to Homeless Angel's many times.
Keith was the kindest, most loving person and I will miss him dreadfully in my life.

Keith and Tom had a great friendship. Always there for each other. Visiting for hours sharing memories of the good old days childhood stories. Keith was always welcome in our home. He was kind, respectful. A friendship treasured right to the end. Be at peace and blessing to the family

Keith and my father, Tom Daggy, were very close friends. Their friendship started as far back as I can remember as a child. They grew up together as children, going to the same schools, and always kept that connection. I always remember Keith coming over to the house to visit. He was always very kind to us and he had a great sense of humor. He still visited my dad up until the days before my father's passing back in March of this year. The two of them always checked in on each other and had the greatest respect towards one another and a lifelong friendship.

Rest in peace Keith. Hope you and my dad are visiting once again.
