Keith met his wife, Fran, during her first weekend in Tucson at a local restaurant in 1982. They shared a love of golf, travelling, deep sea fishing and time at their second home in Pinetop. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Fran (nee Nelson); daughter, Sona; two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Glenne; sister, Mary Ann; and son, Brian. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local hospice or Alzheimer's Association.
