Keith worked with my daddy, Daniel Bowden who passed in March 2013. 2 great men who were so loved and left a wonderful legacy. May you see one another in heaven. My sympathies and prayers for peace to his family. I know all too well the devastation and pain.
You will be dearly missed....you were a man of many talents and cared for others.
See you you in heaven,
I first met Keith in 1991 in Tallahassee. Worked with him, Dan, Chris, Dana, Marty, and many others at Southeast Security. Keith was a good man...truly larger than life and most certainly a master griller! I'm saddened by his passing and your loss.
I knew Keith back when I lived in Tallahassee and he was a kind and loving son and I loved the fact you never had to guess what he was thinking or what was on his mind. I have your family in my prayers and no words can express the sadness that i feel for you and the boys. I take comfort knowin that Keith is looking down from heaven watching over his family, I know he left way to early and will be missed deeply.
I, as well as the rest of our staff at MD Anderson, were so shocked to hear of Keith's passing. He was always such a pleasure to take care of, with his larger-than-life personality, and seemingly endless supply of candy. Please accept my deepest condolences at this devastating time. Our hearts and prayers are with you all.
With most sincere sympathy,
The service was so touching and beautiful. My prayers are with you and your boys.
Mrs. Berdine and Connor,
I was fortunate to have many school based interactions with your Dad and had the privilege of witnessing first hand how deeply he cared about you, as reflected in our conversations. Connor-I am sure you make your Dad so proud. But I just want to wish you and your family peace and love during this time. Please know that you are in my thoughts.

My heart is heavy for you & the boys. The service was beautiful and a great tribute to Keith. I could just picture him kicking back & seeing the service from above. Please, please, please let me know if there is absolutely anything you need. The boys are in the midst of a terrible storm but they are very lucky to have you as their mother to help them get through it. Much love.
Keith was an original. He was larger than life and you never had to guess what he was thinking! Connor and Dylan your dad loved you very much and was proud of all of your accomplishments. Cathy Keith would often say “It is all about me!” but you were his world and everything he did was for you and the boys. I know I am not alone when I say that my heart aches because he has left us too soon. The celebration of his life was a testament to the things that meant the most to Keith - family, friends, Crown Black with a Cuban, good food and spending time with those you love. Cathy anything you or the boys need you know how to reach me. Keith RIP and Godspeed my treasured friend.
Words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. Keith was like a spark of light in the room, a mover and shaker who truly loved his family and life. He will be missed, as time goes by, with more laughter and joy than sorrow. The world would be a better place with more people like Keith. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Cathy, we are so sad to hear of you and the boys loss.....Keith was a wonderful person and will be missed. Prayers and hugs to you, Connor and Dylan.

The guys at the shop will never forget The Man, The Mouth, The Legend of Keith Berdine. He would never just park and step up to the counter he would pull in the shop and bark out why he was visiting us and who was going to work on his car that day. We all knew when Keith was in the shop and we all loved it.
Our hearts are heavy with sadness.We will truly miss our dear friend..Cathy,Conner& Dylan you are in our thoughts & prayers.We love you...
Thinking of you all this week. Keith and his willingness to share his thoughts gave me some critical ideas/materials for my early dissertation research, which in turn launched me on my current career (such as it is). I'll miss hearing more from him . . .
Aunt Eleanor, Cathy and children....we will always love and remember Keith. We celebrate his life with so many sweet memories. Sending love and prayers & continued prayer through this time from our family in North Carolina & Kansas....
I don't know where to start. Keith and Cathy were like parents to me while in college. Keith was one of the most honest, caring and loyal person I know. I have so many stories and great memories I cannot begin to list them all. Some might even incrimminate me. I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with Cathy, Conner, Dylan and Eleanor. Love to you all.
We love you all very much. We will be celebrating Keith on Saturday here. I'm sorry to miss what will surely be an amazing celebration of a life well lived. Our world has gotten a little smaller.
Our Deepest sympathies and condolence. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Those silk shirts, disco nights and blue lights will not be forgotten. RIP Keith.
The world is NOT a better place, what a great loss. May Keith live on in his amazing family and all the people he touched during his journey here. I will always smile when I remember him.
Cathy, Conner, Dylan and Mom Eleanor, so sad to hear the news. Praying for you all during this difficult time. You will see Keith again because Heaven is For Real. Peace be with you - Natalie Johnson - Allstate Claims Jacksonville MCO.
So Sorry for the loss of a loving husband and father. many prayers and hugs to you all. Keith was a wonderfull person to know. we will miss him. I will miss our chats at Mexico Bch. You will be forever loved.
Cathy...so very sorry Keith was taken so soon. It seems like yesterday that I was at your wedding. I spoke to Keith a month or so ago. He was sitting outside of the hospital for the 1st time. He said he was listening to the thunder and taking in some deep breaths of fresh air and it felt great. Now every time I hear thunder, I think of Keith. He had a thunderous personality, so I guess it all fits. I hope you, Conner and Dylan peace in the weeks, months and years to come. God bless and keep you all.
Cathy, Conner, Dylan,
Many of our fondest memories of Tallahassee involve you and Keith. He will truly be missed by all who knew him. Words simply cannot describe our sorrow and our sympathies in this period of grieving.
While your future world will be changed, your "used to be" world will be filled with the love of Keith and the precious memories.
Please know we are praying for you and the boys. With love,
Pam and Tommy
Cathy, Conner & Dylan, Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow, but know our thoughts and prayers are with you. So many memories are flooding my mind right now. Cherish the memories and let them comfort you during this difficult time.
I will always remember Keith as a loving son to Eleanor, a loving husband to Cathy, and a loving father to Conner and Dylan. Forever in out hearts. Forever loved. <3
Cathy, Conner, and Dylan,
We are so saddened to hear of your loss. League baseball was infinitely more fun when Keith was present. No doubt he left a piece of his spirit with his boys, and what a wonderful legacy that is! We are praying for your peace.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm praying for you and your family.
Terri, Zach and Tanner Kent

I knew Keith when he was in the 82nd Airborne Division with Alpha Company 1st Battalion Airborne 508th Infantry and he was a trooper you could count on when you need some one. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family in their time of need. RIP DUCK...
I used to umpire slow pitch softball with Keith. Fun times. Sorry to hear about his passing
