Keith graduated from Fremont Ross High School in 1953 and then continued his education at The Ohio State University and graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1960.

He also served as a meat inspector for the State of Ohio for 12 years.
Keith was a longtime supporter of the Sandusky County Fair and served as a director on the fair board from 1964-1979.

In his younger days, Keith would spend his free time hunting and fishing. He was a member of First Presbyterian Church and an avid Ohio State football fan.
