He was born June 8, 1942 in Covington to the late Frank Keith and Elizabeth Graves Keith.  He was a true public servant, devoting his life and career to the Kentucky State Police.  He served with KSP for 23 years, both as a trooper and as a detective. One large and tragic case he worked during his time was the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire in 1977.  He retired from the Kentucky State Police in 1986.   After retirement from KSP, he was the owner of Bluegrass Realty and Auction Company, where he worked in real estate sales and auctions, as well as building appraisals. 
He was an original founder and organizer of the Lloyd Wildlife Skeet Club, member and past master of the Crittenden-Dry Ridge Masonic Lodge #694 F & AM, and a 32nd degree mason of the Indra Consistory of the Scottish Rite in Covington. 
He loved fly fishing out west and for 17 years, he and his late wife, Carolyn, traveled the highways and back roads of America.  He was also a patriot and proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. 
In addition to his parents, Jerry was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn Elizabeth Keith on April 13, 2014.
