Keith was a great blessing to my life and my children Nancy, David, Elias and Angel. He was fun to be around, and a pleasure to be with. I will always remember when pastor Johnson asked the youth group to do the service. Keith jumped at the opportunity. His choice was the sower who planted seed on different soil. As Keith was sharing, he put his hands in his pocket, grabbed a bunch of birdseed, and showed everyone how they showed seed back in the day which was to swing it across the area, which he did very well, surprising everyone except the pastor. He had a tremendous calling in his life, and is gone far to soon. I will miss you greatly Keith McDonald, and am so glad that God brought you back into my life again. Give Eric a big hug for me please..........

We remember Keith as a fun loving person. He stayed at our house for a while when he was a teenager. I'll never forget how happy a winter coat, a knit hat, and gloves made him one year. So sad to hear of his passing...........
