Keith graduated from Montezuma Cortez High School in 1966. He worked as an Air Force Master Sergeant 322 ALS CRC, and served in Viet Nam as a C130 senior mechanic where he received many awards. After 21 years of service Keith retired from the United States Air Force in 1988 and moved to Cortez, CO and worked at Mesa Verde from 1989-2011. He enjoyed being an avid Broncos fan and an Angel’s End Zone patron, but mostly all the time he spent there with his many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Russel and Mary Elizabeth Rourk.
Keith’s family and friends were most important in his life, and there was nothing he would not do for them.
