I remember Keith from Roosevelt high school. We attended high school together. I also remember when he worked at Centier bank inside of Ultra Foods. He helped me with opening up an account. He was always very professional and pleasant whenever, I would see him. I saw him last year at the All Class Reunion. I told about how I ended up in a wheelchair. I was shot in my spinal cord. He asked me if I would take a picture with him. We took a selfie together. I didn't realize this would be the last time I would see him. To: The family I am deeply sorry about Keith I know time heals all wounds!!! He will truly missed by all of us

This makes me so sad. I will always love and remember Keith, the man with a heart of gold and a legacy of love. He was God's vessel and like the Apostle Paul, he fought a good fight and finished his race. Rest on Keith, rest on.❤

Me and his younger brother Matthew became friends in 1st grade. My first real friend in my life. I had lots of great memories of Keith when me and Matthew would hang out playing Nintendo at the house in Marshalltown. Keith was a very caring, and protective brother, son, and then husband, and father. He definitely became a friend of mine as well. He was a great one...you could trust him with anything, and anyone...Rest well my friend Keith Hopkins.

Wow..I try to never miss the opportunity to speak on someone that I came to associate with. Our encounters in life where brief, but each encounter served a purpose. I've just learned that you were 10 days older than me, and I remember that we had alot of the same taste in things. To know surprise this all brings me back to our encounters. May God show mercy on the Day of Judgment, and give strength to your family during this time of bereavment. Rest in Peace.
