The last time I saw Keith was shortly after his dad died and he was gently taking care of his mom. He was a gentle and good son. Early remembrances: In the early sixties when he was a “man about town” in San Francisco visiting my Dad (his uncle) in the little volkswagen beetle that he was so proud of. Seeing him at work is the check cashing office located at Powell and Market where the cable cars turn around. Playing host and tour guide for his mom and dad (on numerous visits). Here and there around San Francisco with friends and loved ones in long ago days when the fog and the mists shrouded so many things. His times: In Keith’s lifetime and the places he lived, he experienced tremendous change. Some of these have been wonderful, joyful, and affirming. Some have been terrible, cruel, and depressing. It was a remarkable time and he was a remarkable man. He remained kind and thoughtful, wise and good. A good man-a life well lived. Rest in Peace
My best to all at this time. Many memories of our family and know that I send condolences.
