Growing up Theodore was known as Keith or Keybo by family and friends. As a child   he was fun loving and enjoyed being outside as much as possible. As an adult, Keith’s enthusiasm for nature remained. He loved fishing, hunting, hiking, traveling, and especially good food. Keith was always cheerful, and entertaining. He was often known to “crack” jokes as one of his greatest joys was to make people laugh.

Keith attended Temple Church International, in Charlotte, NC under Bishop Kevin L. Long since 2014. Keith devoted his life to Christ. Keith started each day with prayer call and reading his bible.
