Keith passed away at his longtime home in Richland, WA on February 24, 2023, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Keith was born in Grand Island, Nebraska in 1930 to parents Alvin and Maude Holeman.
Keith moved with his family to the Denver, Colorado area and then to the Tri-Cities in October of 1944.
Keith attended Richland High School and was the ASB President during his senior year, graduating in 1949.
He served in the US Navy Air from 1952-1956 as a radio/radar operator aboard a P2V-5 Neptune based out of Whidbey Island, WA.
After his discharge from the Navy, Keith worked in the Hanford area as an instrument technician until his retirement in 1996.
Keith loved airplanes and flying. He had a pilots license and co-owned an airplane with his older brother in his younger years.
Keith enjoyed working meticulously on his house, restoring ‘57 Chevy’s, motor-homing, cruising and traveling with his wife Sharon, visiting friends and family, camping, backpacking, boating and water skiing.
A true Nebraska native, Keith loved home grown corn and tomatoes.
Milkshakes, apple crisp, and homemade pies always made him smile.
He was the chief cookie dough stirrer and head dessert taster of the family.
Keith was preceded in death by his father Alvin, mother Maude, brother Richard, and sister Lois.
Keith is survived by his wife Sharon, his three children Ron, Ken, and Debra (Jeff), his two grandchildren Matthew and Brayden, and his younger brother Ron (Leslie).
