I met Keith when he was my upstairs neighbor when we lived in Metairie, LA. back in the 80's. There was a group of us that always hung together. We all played together on softball leagues, hung out at the Daiquiri Party many nights; enjoyed many Mardi Gras together. He was the life of the party; a great guy whom everyone loved. He was a gentle soul. I will always remember those times.
My heart goes out to his family and friends. RIP old friend, until we meet again.

Keith, I will never forget how Glenn and I loved it when you walked across the street to borrow something or even just to josh a little. You never left without giving us a laugh!

Bill & Suzanne
It is with great sadness that we have learned of Keith's passing. While we did not know Keith throughout the years we were always able to keep up on him through you and Suzanne. We do remember when he was born as we lived in the apartment next to you in Blue Island. As the years have passed you have always be an inspiration in our lives as well as a friend and mentor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Keith's family.

My condolences to the family of Keith. I met Keith in Richmond in the late 90's and became good friends. We found out we both went to Ferris State and lived in Michigan in our younger years. I recall many fun times in Chesterfield together with Keith. He did love sports and was always a fun topic with him. There were many weekend events we enjoyed at Keith's home. He was infectious and always a true friend. He was so supportive and would make you feel so good about how blessed we are in life. He loved his family very much and it showed.
I'm going to miss my dear friend Keith.

I work at the Brighton Shell station. Keith was a daily customer. I tried to have his stuff ready for him when he got there. I had talked to Keith every morning. From truck parts to sports. I appreciated him for his knowledge and honesty. It was a hard blow for me to have found out that dreadful day. From another employee at Champion. My thoughts were. OMG. I just talked to him. His passing hit me hard. I considered him a friend. The morning of the 20th, I, by habit got 2, berry flavored energy shots and a pack of Salems out for him. Keith never showed up. I was sad all day. I miss him and his "mornin moose" he will always be my $15.42 customer. Rest easy now Keith. Miss ya bad bud.
