Will always remember Keith as a good buddy to every kid on the hill. He loved his dirt bike, but many may not know, he also was an avid ping pong player. Spent many hours in the basement whacking the ball around. Just an all around good guy with an adventurous spirit. Always up for sleeping under the stars around a campfire, sled riding, and fishing. Always ready to have a good time. The hill would not have been the same without him.

My deepest condolences to hear about Keith passing. He helped me as a “green” engineer at Mitchell Power Plant and probably got sick of me asking so many motorcycle questions. My thoughts and prayers to the family at this time of loss and sorrow. May he continue to ride in heaven.

So sorry to hear about Keith. Middle school, for me, wouldn’t have been nearly as fun if Keith wasn’t there. He could always make me laugh. RIP dear friend.

Keith, you were a friend of mine. We had some good laughs. Some fun times. And some serious talks. I will miss your weird humour. Fly high. You got your wings.

Keith was one of us, we were next door neighbors and our families were and still are as close as families can be. I have so many great memories of Keith, when I was small I had a huge crush on him. He had a sarcasm about him that could be charming at times. I remember the time that my best friend Karen, (Keith's sister) and I were in a really bad car accident. That evening I had a call from Keith from my hospital bed asking where our Humble Pie concert tickets were, you see we had planned on attending the concert that evening and in Keith's words, "it would be a shame to have them go to waste, can I have them?" Karen, Kraig and Kris please know that I am always here for you and we will continue to get together to talk about all the wonderful times that we shared together up on the hill. Rest in Peace Keith

Smart, quick witted, one of a kind and the most stubborn guy I’ve ever known. So glad we cousins reconnected in recent years. What fun we had. No one ever wanted to live as much as you. Now you’re living forever—told you Heaven would be incredible! So very sorry, Karen, Kraig and Kris, for your heartbreaking loss. Terry & Alvin McLaughlin

Keith and I used to talk about camping and hiking a lot. One day he was admiring the moose bumper sticker on my car, so I bought him another moose bumper sticker. He put it on his motorcycle and I considered it a high honor. I'll miss him a lot.

I’m so glad I dropped in on him last fall. He seemed well although skinnier than I remember, but looking forward and positive. I could go on for hours with fun stories of journeys on two wheels. His whole extended family are lovely people. Hearing this news Breaks my heart. Rest In Peace My Friend.

Oh, Keith, you will be missed. You were always so kind to me, even when asked to move furniture. I remember when we had front row seats to see Mel Torme. You had the weirdest sense of humor ever! I loved your emails. Thank you for being my friend. My love and prayers to your wonderful family.
