Keith graduated from the University of Richmond with a business degree and moved to Arlington Virgina where he worked in marketing for a national telecom company writing and producing television commercials for long-distance voice communication services. Keith created some touching and memorable television campaigns that ran nationally. Keith and I remained close friends throughout college and afterward. When Keith came out to California to shoot commercials, he would fly me down to Hollywood from San Francisco to keep him company at lavish hotels and parties during shoots. Several times he stopped by my place in San Francisco on the way to or from projects in Hollywood. In the spring of 1994 Keith stopped to see me at my new house in San Francisco to let me know he had no choice but to undergo a high-risk surgery. While I was in Amsterdam in September 1994, I got a call from Chris Foster with the news that Keith died while recovering from surgery at his parents' home in Florida. Keith was an accomplished visual artist and marketeer who was able to tell a memorable story in 60 seconds. You are missed, Keith! --Jeff Parker, Class of 75, San Francisco.
