He has climbed to the peaks above storm and cloud.
He has found the light of Son and of God.
I cannot say, I will not say,
That he is dead.
He is merely flown away.
Keith, you will always be missed.
"We will meet you again. But not yet. Not yet."
I just heard about this tragic news. I will always treasure our years together in high school and college. What a great friend and patriot! May God Bless Colleen and the family. Please call me anytime at 225-324-0018. All of you will be in our prayers each day.
Will continue to think of you may old friend and will always have Colleen and the kids in my daily prayers. Surfer
I had the distinct pleasure of starting near Keith at Fed Ex in flight training within a class of each other. Being that Keith and all of us in training and afterwards were elated, we were pinching ourselves and being reminded to be part of such a success story such as Fed Ex. I remember Keith being very excited and quite proud, as we all were to embark on this great journey of our flying careers. It's unfortunate though that some of the highly motivated, conscientious great ones had to end sooner than others. The ones we knew were quite good and competent at what they did. For they wanted to serve others and help in so many ways. These aviators were also very dedicated to their families all at the same time. Family was very important to them. Keith and I had some enlightening conversations, and maybe because I briefly lived in Lafayette, LA. was one of the commonailities that struck a chord early between Keith and I. Although, careers sometimes diverge paths for awhile, Keith will sorely be missed among his peers. I know that for sure. To the Hibbett family, I don't know what to say other than I'm understanding your loss. Please take comfort many of us are. Blue skies always to you sir, Captain Keith Hibbett!
