I was shocked when Danette called me in Chicago with the tragic news of Keith's passing. For decades I have been walking into roomfuls of occasions alone. The thought that Keith might be there made doing so much easier because I knew he would greet me with a warm sincere "hello and how are you doing?" to put me at ease. I also loved watching how attentive he was to Jan at every given moment - almost as if they were newlyweds. Some people make a difference just by being who they are. Their inner light shines bright and touches lives both near and far. Keith was one of those people...
Truly one of the good people in life. Have not seen Keith since high school but every now and then have dreams about him. Will always remember Keith as one of my favorite classmates!! May you rest in peace.
Not saying Goodbye You are always part of our TREASURED memories

Dear Keith. You were one of the good guys. Haven't seen you for quite a while as 7,000 miles is a long way away! We will always remember the trips we made with you and Jan and how welcome you always made us when we were lucky enough to visit. Very fond memories of a dear friend. May you rest in peace.

Dearest Jan and Family,
My deepest Sympathy, prayers and love to all of you at this time. It was so sad for me to read of Keith's passing. Such a great fun caring man. Earl and I enjoyed many good times with you both and always thought of you with such fond memories. I found it so ironic that Keith left his on his journey to heaven on March 10th as my Earl left on his journey 5 years ago also on March 10th. I will be thinking of you all as you celebrate Keith's life. I am just this week starting to drive a little after my long battle with interstichle pneumonitis lung disease which I have been fighting since June 2011 and then since Christmas a almost fatal reaction to Cipro. With warmest and loving regards to you Jan and your family. Love, Pat

You were the love of my life and the best husband in the world it was an honor to be your wife and life will be empty without you. Your loving wife Jan
Jan you are in my thoughts and prayers . Love always Alicia and Bob
I was a crew member on HMS Swiftsure when the submarine visited San Diego in 1995. It was then that I was privileged to meet Keith, my first impressions were of a big man in every sense of the word who was noble and generous even allowing me to beat him once at pool in the Ballast Pub one afternoon after numerous attempts. Keith I will always regret not having been able to lock cues again with you one last time. Rest in peace my friend.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs.
Keith you were the love of my life and I do not know what I am going to do without you. Rest in peace my darling you will be in my heart forever. Thank you for always being there for me thank you for your love and most of all thank you for choosing me as your wife.
Always Your Wife Jan
Jan, There are no words...Kieth was a wonderful person and friend and he will be truely missed. Love Debbie
