He is preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Dennis (May) Boss; paternal grandparents, Clifford (Velma) Arnson; and mother, Judy Ray.
Keith was born August 23, 1960 in Duluth, MN - he grew up in Cloquet, MN. After high school he joined the U.S. Army, 2nd Armor Division, 17th Engineer Battalion, Alpha Company, Fort Hood, TX. He served two tours in Germany.
For many years he was employed at Clark Companies, Edgerton, WI as a drywaller and recently after moving to Frederic, WI he worked at Beaudry and the Frederic Liquor Store.
Keith was a gentle soul that loved to laugh and tell corny jokes, ride trikes (three wheeled motorcycles), work in the garden, work on crafts with his wife and spend time with his family and friends. Keith and Bonnie founded the Southern Wisconsin Chapter of the Brothers of the Third Wheel (BTW). The chapter, with the help of its members, donated to many local charities and benefits. Keith believed in paying it forward and he would always lend a helping hand to anyone that needed it. He genuinely touched the hearts of anyone that met him.
