As many others have expressed, Keith was an extremely valuable professional teammate and a consummate teambuilder. Further, he would use his friendly and jovial demeanor to effectively mediate and resolve some occasional disagreements. It was always great how he was often doting on his family- our deepest condolences to his loved ones.

I had the pleasure of working with Keith for many years. He was an excellent mentor to his peers and always maintained high standards. Keith was organized, punctual and could always be counted on when a tough situation presented itself. I truly enjoyed his sense of humor and the fact that you didn't have to work to understand what he meant when he said something. He laid it right out in plain English. It was also fun to see his expression change when he talked about his granddaughter Avery. My condolences to Meg and the entire family.

Keith was excellent coworker and mentor who was always there to answer my questions. We could joke around and his sense of humor just helped me learn in a fun environment. I enjoyed his company and he will be missed.

I had the pleasure of knowing Keith over the course of the years I spent working at the Tattered Flag. He always brightened our day when he would come in and we would have great conversations. He loved trying my new specials and we were always happy to see him. He would walk in and ask me “what was good on the menu today”. I thoroughly enjoyed preparing dishes for him, and it’s people like Keith that makes me love my job so much. At the end of his visit he would order a pork sandwich to go “Keith style” and we all knew exactly what he wanted. In the restaurant industry majority of us have broken families and people like Keith become family to you. My condolences to Keith’s family. He was a great man and will be missed by many.

Keith and I have known each other since the 80's when we worked at Oyster Creek. Years later, Keith was a staff member reporting to me in the Mechanical Structural Design group at Three Mile Island. While in that position Keith was the Lead Engineer responsible for replacement of the Main Turbine....no small task. Keith developed the Engineering Change and the replacement effort was seamlessly executed.
