Keith was a Christian, having been raised in the Presbyterian faith. During his working years, he had worked at Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO, as a nurses’ assistant, at Instagram in Pacific, MO and at Rail Serve and Midland. His passion was working on cars and in recent years he was a self-employed mechanic. Fishing was one of his favorite pastimes.
