I had the pleasure of not only working with Keith, I had the joy of knowing him personally through Jamie. He was a good, kind, loving, and intelligent man. I am full of sorrow for the loss of such a rare man. May you fly high and always watch over your family
I’ve had him on my mind all week. Feel sorry for his wife and small children.
Im not even sure where to begin… Keith was an amazing guy who loved not only his girls, but my daughter as well. It was a great honor to have met him. In him I saw an amazing man, daddy, and husband to my best friend. He brought a type of happiness that not to many people get to experience. This is a loss to our families. I thank Jamie for sharing this loving man with my family. Our deepest condolences and most heartfelt prayers go out to you and your family always. He will forever live on in our hearts. Fly high Mr. Keith! ♡♡♡
Cathy, Judy, and Lyle, I cannot begin to tell you how much my heart aches for each of you. I know how it feels to lose a sibling and it’s hard. If there is anything I can do for ya’ll, let me know. I pray God gives you all peace and comfort in the coming days. I love all of you so much!
Andrew, Amanda and girls.. I am so sorry for your family losing your Dad. You are in my prayers…love all of you…Nana
My sincere sympathy to the Tipton family at Keith’s passing. I was reacquainted with him about a year ago, and we had such a nice conversation about his Dad and Mom. God Bless your family.
