To the Jestes family our sincere sorrow in hearing of Keith's passing. Keith worked for me at the City of Cody for a time. He helped me lay tile in our home one fall. We were shocked to hear of his passing. Gina please know we are thinking of you. Keith RIP.

Daddy... I do not know what to say other than life will never be the same without you. You taught me so much about how to be independent and self-sufficient. But I still need you.

I want the world to know what an amazing father you are--so self-sacrificing; you made so many of my dreams come true...

I love you.

Keith, my beloved husband, my best friend. I miss you so much. My heart is forever broken. If I could have one more minute with you..... Keith is the most amazing man I have ever known. He never knew a stranger. He was always helping people and would give the shirt off his back to anyone. He was so incredibly talented with wood working, tile, construction....basically anything. He was so proud of his service in the Coast Guard and law enforcement. He was a forever dreamer and started several businesses. He worked harder than anyone I have ever known. He was so full of love and joy. He enjoyed making people laugh. He was a total "goober" and "goof". He loved greatly....He loved his two daughters, Morgan and Brynn with his entire heart. His perfect grandson, Rhyse was the light of his life and his heart. Keith loved and lived passionately. Family and love were the things he craved most in this world. Keith was my heart. We loved each other so much. I love him more than anything. There are no words to express the grief and sorrow my family and I feel. Keith would want us all to be strong and be happy. He would want us to be a "goober" and "goof" like he would. We will remember him with memories of his strength and courage, of his life, laughter, and love. He would want all his family and friends to run to his Lord and Savior, Jesus for comfort and strength when we need it. I will be with you again one day, my sweetheart. God bless you and give you peace. I love you forever and always. Your wife forever and best friend, Gina XXXXXXXXOOOOOOOOO
