Keith was a high school classmate. We were out of touch for several years, but our paths crossed again via social media and our mutual friend Jeri Hughes. When we visited our hometown over Thanksgiving 2017, Keith treated us to the most lavish meal. He could have fed dozens of people but it was just us three. Keith basically had two settings: Full Steam Ahead, and No Way, Jose. He felt things very passionately and had no patience for diplomacy. Perhaps he sensed that life was too short to hold back. Condolences to Keith's family!

Keith Towell was one of my closest friends for about 10 years. My kids called him "Uncle Geek." They couldn't pronounce his first name, but he was into computer programming, so it fit.

Keith was a true rebel. He had his demons, but he also had a soft side. There is nothing he wouldn't do for a friend.

If you were Keith's friend, you were a friend for life. If you weren't a friend, he had no problem being right in your face and telling you why ... and then try to be your friend again. He didn't hold grudges.

If Keith was wrong about something, he would find a way to convince you he was right. If he was proven right, he never threw that back at you.

Keith was a driving force. If you can't drive well, get out of his way. If you can drive well, then get out of his way even faster!

Keith didn't know where he was going, but he preferred it that way. He was a ship without a sail, but he wanted to experience everything. He visited all 50 states.

I asked Keith for help painting my house. It was super hot that weekend. I gave out after about six hours, Keith was still up on the roof and wouldn't stop until it was finished. I admired that.

We would have lost Keith much earlier as he worked in the Trade Towers for Cantor Fitzgerald. He was laid off earlier that year, so he wasn't involved with 9/11, but if he hadn't, he likely would have been part of that tragedy.

Keith was a true American Patriot. He was a Marine and defined himself by that. He used to tell us of his daring missions as a typist in Hawaii. :) One morning he ran out of liquid paper and dodged falling pineapples in order to get more. He could always poke fun at himself. That didn't actually happen, but it was typical of Keith's sense of humor. We used to play cards, drink and laugh until we fell off our chairs.

So, my friend ... rest well and thanks for all the laughs and help.
I know that you are paving the way for the rest of us ... because you always had to be first! :)

Keith was a good person to my grandmother. From the photos I saw, they spent most of their life hanging out as friends. I had only met keith a few times, but he cared for me and got me things when I needed them. He was always on the phone with my grandmother and talking to her when no one else came to the hospital. I thank that man for being in my grandmas life. And I hope he has a good pass to heaven.
