My family and I are so sorry to hear of our good friend, Keith&s, passing. He was instrumental to so many of our earliest and ongoing program successes at KEEP, the Krannert Executive Education Programs. I recall that the founding of our longstanding Engineering/Management program was the result of Keith reaching out to his Engineering buddy, Chuck Elliott, over lunchtime exercise and simply suggesting, ""Let&s do a program together."" The rest, as they say, was collaborative history.

Likewise, Keith taught many sessions of the Finance module in AAHA&s (the American Animal Hospital Association&s) Veterinary Management Institute. I recall he especially desired to give back to the veterinary profession, as he started each module with a photo tribute to his dog. His ""companion"" had lost a leg, but was still a loyal 3-legged jogging partner, thanks to sound veterinary care. It was always a most touching moment, which I&ll never forget.

Keith will be much-missed by the Krannert family. We send our heartfelt condolences to Jane, Jamie and Jon, Julie and Doug, Amy and Pat, and his grandchildren.

In sympathy,

Mike and Patt Sheahan and family

My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time, Jane, and my deepest condolences on your loss.
I barely knew your husband - only through our connection on the Vespers Committee here at the Village. But having just read of his lifetime accomplishments, I am now no longer surprised at his complete coverage of his responsibilities toward this Committee for the month of September, when he was already suffering the pain of his failing body. My gratitude for that help in our work will be reflected in my continuing prayer for you and all his family in these difficult days as you begin to adjust to his loss. Most sincerely, in Jesus& love, Josie Mangus.

Jane and Family,

So sorry to hear of Keith&s passing! I didn&t know that he had been ill, much less for a while. I last spoke with Keith about 2-3 months ago and he sounded like his old chipper self. He will be missed terribly. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
