He graduated with the Gonzales High School Class of 1969 and the University Of Texas School Of Pharmacy in 1974. He had been a member of the The Presbyterian Church in Gonzales. Keith had married Janet Massey in Austin and their love knew no bounds. Keith has worked at Randalls Pharmacy in Austin as a pharmacist for many years, developing many close relationships with related professionals and customers along the way. Keith was a proficient guitar player and as a young man played in a band named the Chaparrals. His gifts took him beyond playing music to dancing to various disciplines of dance, Ballroom dancing, Western dancing and Polkas to name a few. He had an artistic side to him as well, his paintings are extraordinary, and often his vivid choice of color and boldness captivated those lucky enough to view his work. He had sold much of his work in Austin at art shows and commissioned art auctions. One of his last paintings entitled "These Boots Are Made For Walking" received first prize in a number of categories and Best of Show in the Gonzales "Come and Take It" art exhibit. He was a consummate gentleman, kind and gentle to all, and his art reflected the complexities and genius of a gentle soul that will forever be missed by those who knew and loved him. Keith is survived by his sister, Susan Glasgow of Naperville, IL, a niece Trista and a nephew Kevin. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, parents and a brother Warren DuBose, III.
