Keith’s childhood was challenging, but adversity helped mold him into the incredible man he became. Keith was the one you wanted on your side, with a relentless will to succeed. He was always there when you were at your lowest, but he wouldn’t accept anything in return for his help or support. His love for the Corps, TLC, Family, Friends, and Career was unwavering. His life could be summed up in four words, Dedication, Love, Honesty, and Integrity. There was no gray area when it came to any cause with Keith. He did not waver when it came to what was right. Our nation desperately needs more Keith’s in this world.
Survivors include loving family members and many friends.
