Keith loved to fish, work on cars and most of all he loved to spend time with his family and grandchildren.

Occasionally passerby could catch him in his garage or driveway detailing his car, motorcycle, truck, camper, racecar or boat….He loved his vehicles.  In later years Keith’s happy place was on his pontoon boat, where he enjoyed spending time with friends and family.  He loved taking his nieces and nephews tubing on Copake Lake.…the FASTER the better.  He affectionately referred to them as “his victims!”

After retirement he became the family fix it man as he loved to tinker.  His grandsons’ go to phrase was always “give it to POP…POP can fix anything!”
