A native of Atlanta, GA, Keith was the son of the late Earl and Carmen Dusthimer Gray. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Peggy Davis.

Four weeks prior to his passing, he was able to get out on the lake to do what he loved. Keith enjoyed being on the water with his sons and won several bass tournaments. When he wasn’t on the water, Keith loved spending time with Susan, his children and his grandchildren. He was known to be the “animal whisperer” with his many cats and other animals. Keith will forever be missed and loved by his family.
