He be­gan his ca­reer in life as a sheet metal fab­ri­ca­tor. Af­ter years of do­ing this, he made the switch to Devco. Lastly, he tried his hand at work out west fol­lowed by his re­tire­ment. Keith had many fa­vorite pas­times, one was horses. He was the hap­pi­est when spend­ing time with his baby Tre Tre Grande, she could put a sparkle in his eyes. He was also a great gar­dener, veg­eta­bles first, flow­ers sec­ond. Plenty of neigh­bors on Cameron’s Lane, along with fam­ily had toma­toes and cukes all sum­mer. He knew where the great fish­ing holes were too. Many a tale he would tell with Sid Jr. He could take a piece of wood and cre­ate a very in­ter­est­ing mas­ter­piece. This he loved do­ing with his brother Wayne as they build things to­gether, Wayne sanded and Keith stained, what a pair. That’s all his nieces and nephew had to say “can you build” and there it was. They have mem­o­ries of him in their own homes now.
