Keith was our Big Brother, our “Super Man”. He was extremely intelligent and talented. He could fix, build, or create anything! He was the founder and creator of his clothing line, known as ‘Gospel Gear.’ Keith was also a creative, professional, licensed Barber.
He also obtained his Associate's Degree in Underwater Welding. He loved the outdoors, fishing, hiking, cooking, drawing, singing, and spending time with his family. The family was everything to Keith. He would light up any room he entered and show love to everyone he met. He never met a stranger. He would give you the shirt off his back. He had so much compassion in his heart and he LOVED the LORD! He would captivate you speaking of Jesus. I know his soul is resting in Heaven and he is as FAMOUS as he will ever be now. We love you Keith, and we will miss you tremendously. No one can ever take your place in our hearts. Rest easy my brother.
