    Keith was a great man and a great friend to my father. He was always there for my dad and he will be missed by all who knew him.

    Please accept our sincere condolences, Keith will be remembered as a very active veteran in our community.
    Joel and I particularly remember Keith for helping us make all of our wedding reception arrangements at the Millard Legion some years ago. He was especially thoughtful and kind. And of course all of his work at the Forty and Eight club.
