Keith loved his family. He attended his grandkids sporting events regularly and enjoyed family gatherings or just being surrounded by his loved ones.

Keith enjoyed riding around town with Daisy at the shotgun, making his rounds to say "Hi" to everyone and making sure his kids and grandkids were doing alright. Keith graduated from McHenry East High School where he played football as a linebacker. His family would always laugh and joke about how he became their "OLD" linebacker and how he will always be the protector.
