Keith dearly loved his church, Pastor Melody, the
beautiful music from the organist and choir, and the
kindness and care shown by the congregation.
Keith’s Tuesday’s were busy as he searched for new
recipes for cookies to bake and share with his
Wednesday night card buddies. Win or lose, he had
the greatest times.
Keith was excited about spring coming and had
already started his garden lists. He enjoyed sharing
produce with family and friends. Sometimes he
would pack the baskets several times until they
suited his liking.
Keith worked for the National Holstein Association
for 10.5 years. He judged many dairy shows in
Indiana, Michigan, as well as Puerto Rico and South
America. Upon retirement, he worked for the Ohio
DHIA association. He loved being the leader of the
Indiana Jr. Holstein Association. He was blessed
with very talented youth and led them to many state
wins in the Dairy Bowl Competition.
While Keith worked with Holsteins, upon retirement
he purchased 4 Brown Swiss embryos which started
the “Mama Fern” Cow family. Fern and her
offspring produced many All American nominees.
Keith was tearfully happy of the Ferrandcrest
offspring winning their classes at the Ohio Spring
Dairy Expo prior to selling.
