Keith was a Vietnam Vet and served in the US Army from 1968-1970. Keith loved riding his Harley, but would only ride with Lylette. Keith and Lylette traveled many years on their Harley's. Their favorite ride was their 1987 Lowrider They rode to Sturgis for over 30 years. One of Keith's proudest moments was when he gave his Lowrider to his Son-In-Law, Curtis Burke for Father's Day in 2019 so it would remain in the family. He was the best "Nanny" for several years to his granddaughter McKynzie. He loved his family dearly! Keith also enjoyed woodworking. He attended church at Missouri Synod Lutheran.
