    I have been a friend and Bandmate of Keith for 25 years, so when Laurie told me the terrible news I was devastated. I respected Keith a great deal, both as a fellow musician and as a humble, loving, family person. I will always remember him that way. Janet and myself send our condolences and love to the family..we are thinking of you all at this incredibly sad time. Rod & Janet.

    I met Keith through my friend Eric a year and a half ago. He had done studio work that impressed me, and he agreed to help with some songs I wanted to release. The day we met in person I saw a BIG man with a kind voice who let me know he loved God, his family, and music, Keith made me feel welcome, and even cared for, from that day on. I loved the way he was able to bring out the best musically while maintaining an encouraging demeanor, even when going at it for hours in the studio. You could tell that ability came naturally from a big heart. I will remember that time with him, and conversations we had afterwards that always left me feeling encouraged. Wish we had more time together brother.

    I met Keith around 35 years ago when we both worked at the Lakeland Civic Center as it was called back then, and we have been friends ever since. I'll NEVER forget the fun we had playing guitar together, getting Crazy Bread from Little Cesar's for lunch and just simply goofing around, laughing at our own jokes and somehow we still got our work done! I remember one time the Center was going to buy new furniture for the big room that all the stars that came there would hang out in and they were going to auction the old furniture that had been use by all the stars, Elvis, Sinatra, ect.The Ledger sent a photographer there to take a picture of the furniture to be auctioned. They wanted two people to pick up each end of the big couch! Well who do you think was the closest two people? Yep, you guessed it! Me and Keith! Well you gotta picture this, I was 5' 4 and Keith was well...TALL!!! They took the picture, printed it in the paper and me and Keith cracked up! It looked like a Dachshund on one end and a Great Dane on the other!!! I Loved my dear friend Keith! He will always have a special place in my heart! Until I see you again one day on streets of gold, show them how to pick and sing up there my friend! Love ya buddy!!!

    Keith was a brother in Christ and in music. The time we spent in studio was more than just making music. The Spirit of God was ever-present. We shared testimonies and confessions. We laughed a lot and shed a few tears. He was a bright light in a dark world and life seems dimmer now that he is gone. But I rejoice in knowing that heaven is brighter now that he's there and I look forward to seeing him again someday, making music with Jesus. Laurie, my heart breaks for you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

    I met Kieth about 20 years ago when I started working at Granite Diagnostic Laboratory. He came up and introduced himself to me, and when I first saw Keith I thought to myself, I hope I never get on his bad side, but when we started talking, I knew we were going to be good friends. Keith had a magnetic personality, everybody that met him liked him, he always spoke the truth, that is what I liked about him, my dear friend I, and many other people that you touched throughout your life are going to miss you very much. Go rest high on that mountain my friend.
