There is a huge empty space in our hearts here at BMW- I have a tough time thinking that he isn't going to pop into my office with a smile and an amusing story to share- I feel I am a better person for knowing Keith and miss him- I cannot begin to imagine the sorrow the family is feeling-

My sincere condolences.  May Keith rest in peace. A donation has been made to Willamette Humane Society in Keith's name, to honor his caring and loving way of living.

The true measure of a man can been seen at his funeral. This was absolutely proven on Saturday for Keith. I had no idea that he had touched so many lives until I stood in that jam-packed funeral home. Keith was an amazing man. He was the epitome of a great father and husband. He will be greatly missed. Especially by me. The next time I am standing on the golf course with a beer in my hand, I will make sure to have one for him.
