In Keith’s younger years he enjoyed helping his grandfather on Fairview farm. This is where he learned to drive a tractor and to tap maple sugar trees. During the winter he enjoyed having fun riding snowmobiles with his cousin Bill Young. Keith also loved camping with his family in York beach, Maine, and throughout the White Mountains. His love for camping extended to his own charming space in Weston, Vt. at Horseshoe Acres, where he could spark up a conversation with anybody. At the camp, he could also be found relaxing with his sons or tending to the camper, all while seeking out the next campfire. Keith was a devoted husband, and his 3 sons were the light of his life. In his free time he enjoyed trips to Maine any chance he could get. Keith was never scared to take on new opportunities and did everything with honesty and integrity.
Keith was really enjoying retirement, hanging out early in the morning at the plaza visiting with his best friend Tony Jerolino like a couple of kids. You would also find him visiting all over town; sometimes you would catch him down at the Circle K chatting with his friend Dennis. He will be missed by all who knew him.
