Linda Killinger - Apr 30, 2016

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.. I will always remember Keith. He was always so fun loving and caring of others. I will always have fond memories of him from when I was the little girl next door and he was the college boy that would take time out of his life to pull me on my sled or play the organ for me. “Henry” will forever be in my heart! He was so brave with his illness but had such a great attitude. He was a wonderful example to us all. I know that he is at peace in the Lord’s arms now. with our deepest sympathy Linda(Osborn) and Bruce Killinger

My thoughts and prayers are with the Brown family during this very difficult time. May you find comfort in your loving memories of him and God’s promise at John 5:28,29 which explains the hope that we will see our love ones again.

I worked for Keith for several years at Ross. He always made me laugh. One time when we were based in the old Commercial Building he came running up the steps and when he tried to open the door the handle came off in his hand. He apparently was trying to get to the restroom. At one point I had taken a leave of absence from another department and wanted to return to work. There was an opening in Purchasing and since I had known him previously he hired me on the spot basically without the input from the other buyers. I now live in Arizona and was told of his passing by my sister-in-law who had also worked at Ross. I am truly sorry for your loss.
