Keith was known among his family and friends for his quiet wisdom and tremendous spirit to endure. His great faith in his Savior and ability to trust God with the time granted here speaks volumes to those willing to listen. Though his physical body presented its limitations, the greatness of his love and grace for those surrounding him abounded. His biggest smiles could always be captured when the youngest family members, be it niece, nephew or cousin was toddling around the wheels of his chair. An avid lover of sports, Keith was dedicated fan to his long-time favorite team The Atlanta Braves, and made yearly pilgrimages to Atlanta to soak up the sun and cheer on his beloved team. Keith loved video-games, board games and time surrounded by the laughter of his family.
