Keith grew up south of Lyman, graduated from Lyman high school in 1965, and married Suzanne Carpenter, his high-school sweetheart, in 1967. He graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1969. He raised his family and farmed near Lyman for almost 30 years. He believed in and trusted Jesus as his personal savior during high school and was a longtime member and elder at Kiowa Community Church until he and Suzanne moved to Scottsbluff in 1997.

Keith worked for the University of Nebraska Extension Office and later retired from Armtech.

Keith was known to be kind, generous, gentle, and had a contagious laugh, genuine smile, and refreshing sense of humor. He loved to shoot rifles and helped his friends remove over 4,000 prairie dogs from their land. Keith dearly loved his family and deeply missed Suzanne.

Keith is survived by three children: Stephanie (David) Pritchard, Paula (Richard) Scott, and Kyle (Jamie) Flint; seven grandchildren: Meghan (Rowan) Garmon, Justin (Charity) Pritchard, Nathan (Morgan) Pritchard; Emma Scott; Ethan Scott; Madeline Davies, and Gracie Flint; and three great-grandsons: Riley and Judah Garmon, and Finley Pritchard. He is also survived by his sister Nancy Rein and brother John Flint.

He was preceded in death by his wife Suzanne; parents Charles and Dorothy Flint; and in-laws Kenneth and Mildred Carpenter.Read Less
