Keith was raised in this area, receiving his HS diploma from Catoosa HS, and his degree as an auto mechanic from Oklahoma State Tech. Despite his mechanic degree, Keith ended his working career as a concrete finisher and then foreman.

Keith married Ramona "Mona" Hurd on August 4, 1984,and after living in Stillwater, OK and Worchester, MA, they settled down to raise their family in Claremore.

Keith was described by many as a hard worker, but he always made time for pranks, and spending time outdoors. He shared his love of the outdoors with Mona, and they spent as much time as possible hiking and camping. Working with the church Life Teen youth allowed him to share his love of camping and floating.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

His memory will live on in his wife, Mona; His sons, William Alan of Tulsa, and Thomas Keith of Owasso; his brother, Ronnie Walkingstick, and his sisters, Donna Widney, Janet Smallwood, Joy Walkingstick, and Lisa Sheats.
