He carried on his family’s music legacy by being involved in several different bands over the years, most recently the Sierra Mountain Band and his own Mountain Fever Band, being hired to play for numerous weddings, outdoor events, and many local resorts. Keith enjoyed participating in many music festivals, bluegrass camp outs, and traveling extensively with various close-knit musician friends.

Keith worked for the County Road Department as a heavy equipment operator and retired as Foreman after 23 years. He has been well known and loved by the local community.

Keith had a deep love for our Lord Jesus Christ and was passionate about sharing the great love that Jesus has for each and every individual.
