Keith was a strong man of faith and loved being with his church family at Hope Assembly in Fayetteville, where he served in a multitude of roles from board member to nursery care. He was also a leader in the Celebrate Recovery Program in both Shelbyville and Fayetteville. Keith began his career in the oil business, where he faithfully served the family for more than a decade. Keith and Anita then became successful business partners with Sunbelt business brokerage. Keith was a man of many talents, who championed himself as a jack of all trades. According to his family, Keith was a man worthy of being called husband, father, and friend. He enjoyed helping and celebrating others. Keith liked the outdoors, fishing, and fellowshipping any time the Tennessee Vols were playing.  Go Vols one last time!

In lieu of flowers, Keith would be honored for donations to be made to Hope Assembly Church for the Celebrate Recovery Program in Fayetteville.
