Keith is in a lot of my childhood memories, as he was my Dad's best friend. I remember his great laugh, his passion for music. I loved swimming in his pool, watching Indiana basketball at his house, and picking up metal coils in his machine shop. I am very thankful that he was such a good friend to my dad.
