Keith was born July 18, 1951 to Alloyes and Velda Dewald and was a lifelong resident of Au Gres. He grew up in his father’s business, Dewald’s Shell, and eventually became its owner, later working for United States Gypsum.

Keith was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying trapping, hunting and fishing. He continued to enjoy these activities even after an accident left him paralyzed in the year 2000. Deer hunting was his passion which he enjoyed with his son and grandson as well as taking the "scenic route” with his son-in-law. Keith had a keen interest in collecting antiques and took great pleasure in the collecting process. He enjoyed watching the wildlife outside his sunroom windows including, deer, turkeys, eagles, squirrels, cranes, and birds. Mostly, Keith enjoyed and loved his family.
