Keith had many passions in his life.  He thoroughly enjoyed coaching his children, and grandchildren in any sport they were involved in. He coached and played slow- pitched softball for various teams throughout the years.  Including teams that his sons and grandkids were a part of. His favorite cheer would be " Rock n Roll". He was still coaching the Ride Hard slow pitch softball team last summer, which he was so very proud of. He enjoyed hunting, especially the annual Deer hunts with the boys, and the fishing trips with the "good ol boys" to Canada. Keith had a love for the sun.  He enjoyed sitting on the deck to "catch some rays" as soon as the weather hit the upper 60's. He looked forward to our annual Family and Friends vacations at Lolls Resort and later Ten Mile Lake Resort. His favorite times at the lake involved making sand castles with the kids, riding the teeter totter with his daughter, playing catch with his sons, walks with the grandkids around the campground, skipping rock contests with the grandkid's, and competing with his granddaughters who could get the darkest tan.  As well as picking the glass out of the sand so no one would step on it.  Lastly he enjoyed the nightly campfires and camp chants, YELLOW BIRD! Keith was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan.  He enjoyed company (but not during Vikings games), and dancing and singing in the kitchen with family and friends.  He also enjoyed tending to his flowers in his backyard and parents graves. Through all of Keith's passions in life, the most important of them all were his grandchildren.  Not one day would go by that he didn't boast to someone about each and everyone of them.  He was a proud proud Father and Grandfather.

My friend and our fellow 1966 classmate Bob Luther recalls playing Otter baseball with Keith. He added that they also were teammates on the 1963 Fergus Falls VFW baseball team.

You may recall that the high school baseball coach was John Hermes and Oats LeGrand coached the VFW team.

Also good memories of Keith from Dan Larson, FFHS Class of 1965, who also played Otter baseball with Keith.

Hopefully Keith will now be part of the "Field of Dreams" up in Heaven.
