Keith attended SDA Junior Academy in Green Bay and the Wisconsin Academy in Columbus, WI (1965-1967). He proudly served his country with the United States Army from October 27, 1967 in Germany as a medic until his honorable discharge in September of 1969.

On November 20, 1976, Keith married Patricia Ladowski at St. Joseph Church in Green Bay.  Keith worked for Izzy Ambulance Service.  He then began working for Metro Rescue and while employed there, he received his EMT and then enrolled into the State of Wisconsin’s first paramedic class through NWTC.  On December 8, 1980, Keith joined the Green Bay Fire Department where he worked 25 years as a firefighter/paramedic, retiring as Captain in January of 2006.
