We had a very short time with Keith, but he was an awesome man. He always had your back and made us laugh. He will be sorely missed.

While I was only around Big Daddy for a short time. It didn’t take long to see the kind of person he was. Always vigilant, never balked at a chance to help a brother, and kind words all around.

My fondest memory was on a ride to the crawfish festival in Breau Bridge Louisiana. There were a bunch of us on bikes and the ride from the Houston Area was a hot one I looked up to see Big Daddy coming in the parking lot He was soaked with sweat, red in the face. I asked him if he needed anything and he smiled and said. “What could I need? I’m with my brothers riding Harley’s!!

Ride on Big Daddy!!! You will be missed.

Our deepest condolences to the entire family in this time. Our prayer is that the smiles and laughter of BD is the peace GOD gives you in your grief.

I am so going to miss you my brother. So glad I came by to see you on these last couple days on Earth. Just know that all your family and friends loved you very much. You are in a much better place now with no pain but that doesn't stop the fact that we all miss you. Save me a parking spot up there upfront where we can still hear the band play loud. We will ride again someday brother. I love you.

Dad you were the greatest male role model and influence. You raised us boys camping, hunting, fishing, woodsmanship, responsible and safe weapons handling and marksmanship. Building an incredible classic in your cool look ways but to the tops in its year or make. Be assured the 'Vert Beetle will always be on the road. You always showed what it was to be a man not just by man things, but how to be a hard worker, a man of your word, supporting your family and being a positive in this world. You were always real and hard, but I am the man I am because of it. Obtaining the dream life. My brother Aaron, cousin Jeremy, grandson Aaron Keith always could count on you to take us to do things no one but the greatest father and coolest person I ever knew would show a young man how to live in the real world but enjoy it's natural pleasures. Camping/ Hunting (though bagging more shut eye than big game in your stand)/car building/ shooting and so many other trips with some of the greatest memories anyone could ever have. That is how your legendary status will continue on forever. My first Sturgis trip wearing out the black top on our bikes with my brother. The 3 of us, together, doing something with our ol man that is a right of passage for a biker and son. Making my wife feel loved and special with a great father figure to count on. Letting her even win at shooting in Tombstone and you're the best shot ever. Your many, many week visit last summer was something we are so happy to remember your smiles and being someplace you loved to be and proud I did it and you had a place here. Thank you, Daddy...you will be dearly missed. My memories and place in my heart will forever be filled with you.

Uncle Keith, you helped groom me into the man I am today. From playing in your shop on the dirt floor as a young boy to showing us boys (Randy, Aaron and I) how to hunt and camp and be a man. Being the best man in my wedding. Then a year ago selling me my dream bike you had worked on so very hard. I will think of you every time I ride and till we meet again. God speed!
