departed this life May 2, 1999 at the age of 79 years, three months at Roseville Hospital in suburban Sacramento,
Keith married Pauline "Polly" SOSEMAN of Oskaloosa, Iowa on June 2, 1943 at Alameda, California where both were
by United Airlines. Keith's career with United Airlines continued for 36 years in Illinois, Colorado and Michigan. Severe
eye problems required early retirement and they then located in Denver, Colorado. They travelled the world on United
Airlines passes for many years.
Keith and Polly moved to Folsom, California in 1994 on doctor's recommendations that he live near sea level to help his
breathing. He was active in the Folsom Presbyterian church, Kiwanis, Elks and civic retirement organizations until his
health prevented further participation.
Keith's survivors include his wife, Polly; a daughter, Linda FOSTER of Ocean Grove, New Jersey; a son, Keith and wife
Gloria and two granddaughters of Littleton, Colorado; a sister, Ramona ANDERSON and husband Raymond of Sun Valley Lake,
Ellston, Iowa; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Preceding Keith in death were his parents, four half-brothers and one half-sister.
According to Keith's wishes, his body was cremated. His ashes will be buried next summer at a memorial service in Tincup, Colorado, an old mining town high in the Rocky Mountains. This was Keith's favorite place on earth where they built a vacation home many years ago.
Memorials should go to your favorite charity in Keith's name.
