Keith was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, on May 20, 1957, to Arnold and Arlene Evenski. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1975 and served there until 1982 after graduating from Dassel-Cokato High School. For 37 years, Keith was employed with Heartland Ag Systems as a buying agent. He started working as a buyer for Fastenal in Hutchinson after retiring.
Keith and Joyce Ann Klement were married on May 7, 1982. After 41 years of marriage, they were blessed with two children, Kyle (Nicole) and Mandi (Ting), and three grandchildren, Kyson, Ashlyn, and Brevin. Family was the most important thing in Keith’s life, even though he loved them and was glad to see them thrive in life. He rarely declined the chance to support his grandchildren in all they attempted.
Keith loved to go hunting, fishing, camping, riding motorcycles with friends, and spending time at the lake creating memories. Whether he was working in the yard, visiting the farm, or engaging in conversation with neighbors, he liked being outside.
Keith was blessed to have a large circle of friends who were constantly made to smile by his sense of humor. The remaining family members of Keith are his wife Joyce, son Kyle (Nicole), daughter Mandi (Ting), mother-in-law Delores Klement, brother-in-law Rick (Jane) Klement, sister-in-law Connie (Andrew) Portner, and stepmother Mae Evenski. Brevin, Ashlyn, and Kyson are his three grandchildren. His sister Brenda Evenski and parents Arnold and Arlene Evenski passed away before him.
