Tom was born on March 8, 1954 to Fred Thomas (Jr.) and Gladys Keith. He was a descendent of the Cherokee and Choctaw Nations. Tom was a fun and outgoing guy from a young age. He was a graduate of Lake Highlands High School, class of 1972. He made everyone laugh with his larger than life personality and was well loved by many friends. His passions in life included fast cars, rock music—especially The Beatles, singing, playing guitar, and surfing for 30 years in California. He took pride in owning high-end menswear clothing stores in Las Vegas and Hollywood. He loved nature, animals, and spending time at White Rock Lake and Flagpole Hill, near his childhood home. Toward the end of his life, he cherished time with his friends and childhood sweetheart, Joyce Tackett.
Tom is survived by sister, Freda Keith, and children, T. Hunter Keith and Victoria Blair. He is preceded in death by his parents, Fred Thomas Keith, Jr. and Gladys Keith.
Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
