Keith was employed by Regal Beloit of Cassville, Missouri where he had been for forty-four years and was still there at this time. Keith loved hunting, fishing, stock car races and going to the cafe in Wheaton every weekend for coffee. He enjoyed visiting with all the “old timers”. His most favorite pastime was going to watch his daughter and grandson play sports. Keith and Debbie were very fortunate. They were able to watch every game that Christy and Michael participated in and never missed a one. Keith and an old friend, Larry Butler were able to coach their daughters for thirteen years of summer softball. They both enjoyed every minute of it and were praised from many schools for winning twelve out of thirteen years. He enjoyed watching the races in the summer, where his nephew raced a lot of weekends.
Keith was loved by many friends and family and will be sadly missed.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; his dad, Ray and his sister, Sharon.
