Burgess, his sisters Bonnie Moon, Cindy Burgess-Russotti and Tracy Sagun. He his predeceased by his father F. Keith Burgess Sr. Keith’s roots were in the north but his heart was in the south. He had many friends who loved him and considered him a brother. He was very generous and kind, and often gave unselfishly, sometimes at his own expense. Keith was shop manager at BLT Steel Fabrication Inc. in Leeds. He was a master craftsman who’s attention to detail and eye for the precise measure made him a standout among his peers. He was proud of the knowledge and skills he learned from his father and he in turn passed them on to his co-workers. His loves were: family, friends, his Harley, guns, Alabama Crimson Tide, Nascar-especially #3, and retelling childhood stories. The family will receive friends Wednesday, August 08, 2018 from 6PM to 7PM at Kilgroe Funeral Home Leeds Chapel with a memorial service to follow at 7PM.

Keith was a very special man and loved by many. He was well respected in the welding industry and will be truly missed. We consider him as family here in Alabama. Gone too soon! Praying for his family and friends.

I've cut Keith's yard for 2 plus years. Plus, Keith taught my youngest son, Josh, to be a good welder and fitter. He took him under his wing and taught my son a trade he will use the rest of his life. I know Josh meant a lot to Keith, but Keith meant a lot to Josh. Thank you Keith Burgess for being there for my son. You will be missed. Fly high my friend. May God our Father take you under His wings now. Rest In Peace Keith Burgess. Steve
