He was born Jan. 15, 1933, in Ellsworth, Maine. At the age of 10, his family moved to Mankato where he was raised. Returning to Mankato while on leave from the service, he met his wife, Pat Angle who was attending college. Following their marriage, they lived in New London, Conn., for a short time. The couple then moved to Rochester and have lived here since. Keith was a meat cutter for Piggly Wiggly and later worked in sales for several beverage companies in Rochester, retiring in 1995. Keith's wife, Patricia is a retired secretary for Byron High School.
Keith was a Korean War veteran and served from 1952 to 1956. He was also a member of the Eagles Club in Rochester and enjoyed traveling.
Survivors include his wife, Pat; a daughter, Deborah (Steve) Stevenson of Rochester; a son, Doug (Dana) Cousins of Minneapolis; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
