He served in the US Army and while overseas he married Sieglinde “Linda” Seitz on October 1, 1959 in Bernau Germany and after serving three years in the Army they moved back to the family farm in the U.S. This last year they celebrated 63 years of marriage.
Keith worked in different county quarries and later 36 years for the DOT working on the asphalt roads and tested it. He also farmed.
