  • I haven't seen Keith in 50 years, but have a tug on my heart knowing that he is now gone. I considered Keith a good friend when we were at the U. of A. together in the early '50s. I was a Pi Phi and dated in the Kappa Sig house. I have always remembered Keith as a man of great talent, with love of life, and serious potential. I believe he fulfilled his dream. My deepest sympathy to his family...
