Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

    My husband and I enjoyed meals with Keith at FCM. He was always pleasant and quick to smile. It is sad to lose a love one, however, the time came for him to leave this earthly life. Prayers of comfort to the family.

    We’ve lost another great man. I was lucky enough to enjoy several of Keith’s pies that he treated our Sunday School class with. He was a strong christian and we all know that he is now looking down on us from heaven and he is with his dear Peggy. Bye Keith and maybe I’ll see you again some day.

    Bernie and Bonnie and your families,
    I have had the great pleasure of meeting your Dad several times over the years of our friendship. He was a warm caring man of great dignity and integrity. I see him in both of you and your families. He has left his spirit within each of you. I know you all will miss him, but I also know he has been received by his Savior with these words: “Well done, good and faithful servant”. With Love, Pam and Jim Garner

    Sorry I couldn’t make it to the funeral. Keith was such a nice guy. He did so many good things in his time here. I last saw him at my father’s funeral (Harold Quin). It was so good of him to be there. My dad was 92. Sadly, Keith didn’t make to that ripe old age. Our family sends condolences to the family. Hope all are doing well.

    I knew Keith through my work with the presbytery. He was a man of great faith, determination, strength, and kindness. My fondest memories of him are at when I served on committees with him, at presbytery meetings, and when I moderated the Farmington session meetings. But I would be remiss if did not note that Keith was a champion pie baker, second only to my mother! Rest in peace, my friend. Frosty
