Keith was also a 1st degree black belt in karate, played semi-pro football for the Hawks in Huntington, WV, and was a reserve police officer for ten (10) years. Keith was a great and doting father, church member, and friend. Keith had a smile that lit the room and a heart of pure love. Keith was very goofy and made everybody laugh, but he always knew there was a time to play and a time to be serious. It’s safe to say, he was a people person. He was a great man who did not mind helping others, even when he did not have much himself. Even at his worse, he was always concerned for the needs others.
