Keith Ludlow Fernandes
July 17, 1961-Oct. 25, 2013
Resident of San Lorenzo
Keith passed away on October 25th surrounded by his family and friends after bravely facing a battle with cancer. He was a native of San Lorenzo and a graduate of Arroyo High School. He was an avid Harley-Davidson enthusiast and Raider fan. Keith's passion for motorcycles led him to the SLZ Mob and Old Coots on Scoots. Although he had no children of his own, GUK (Great Uncle Keith) as he was fondly named, thoroughly enjoyed his nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews and loved having them around. Having all of his family in the area, Keith never missed a family gathering. Keith spent years as a truck driver until circumstances prevented him from working. At that point, he took care of his father for almost 7 years, until he passed earlier this year. Keith kept his sense of humor and kept us laughing until the end. His bravery was an inspiration to all of us. Keith was preceded in death by his parents Marilyn and Lud Fernandes, great niece Haley, and his beloved dog Howie. He is survived by sister Leslie Fernandes (Robin) of San Lorenzo, Gail Monge (Rick) of Livermore, Jeff Fernandes (Charlene) of Lafayette, 6 nieces/nephews and 7 great nieces/nephews and his faithful 4 legged companion Festus. The family would like to thank Keith's friends who stood by him through this difficult time. A celebration of Keith's life is being planned and the family will announce the date.
