During his high school and post high school years he worked for Columbiana Farms. Keith was later employed in his father’s carpentry business until May of 1985. He owned and operated Jones Communications in Eldred during the Ham and CB Radio days of the 70’s and 80’s. He was employed at Lambert St. Louis Airport until 1990 and worked for several years in various Carrollton lumber and hardware stores. Keith spent many of his later years enjoying flea markets, auctions and various sales as well as owning and operating “A Step in Time Resale Shop” in Carrollton. He loved researching local and family history, making a good sale or trade and spending time with his grandchildren until his battle with ALS (better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) took his mobility but not his mind or spirit.
