He faced many challenges and conquered them all; he was able to enter Elk Creek School at grade level in first grade and was reading and writing in basic braille. He attended public school in Idaho and enjoyed many activities. He wanted to do everything his brother was doing; this included riding motorcycles and snowmobiles with Leen's guidance. He also enjoyed downhill skiing, wearing headphones to tell him where to ski. The family moved to Fargo in 1986, where he attended Fargo North Highschool.

Keith moved to Texas in the summer of 2008 to join friends. He bought his home in San Antonio in 2014, where he resided until he passed away.
