Keith, although self-taught, became an expert Electronics and Device and Component Specialist. He lent his expertise to many friends and family throughout his life. There are many of us today whose lives are simpler and less frustrating due to Keith’s “want” to help and assist others.
Keith enjoyed watching and participating in most all sports. He was an avid golfer, dart enthusiast and master of most board and card games.
