Keith’s love for life was infectious and he was easily loved by all who knew him. He was a devoted employee of Newport News Shipbuilding and always had a story to tell. He had a love for his friends and family deep through his heart. He enjoyed spending his time making people laugh, being the life of the party, and making others happy. He loved gardening, planting new flowers, tinkering around the house, and collecting junk. He was a spirited soul and deeply passionate about his music. He would often be found dancing around and being the lead guitarist in his own band. Keith was kind and passionate, and impacted many lives. He will be forever missed. Until we meet again.
