    To the family of "Doc" Brown; I just wanted to share that my children, Josh, Erin, Ada Brock-Medus Loved Keith. He inparted carrying, life skills, nuturing to all of them. Even I when I would be there he was the same. Also, the wondrful produce of his big garden. When the kids decided to move, leaving doc was the one thing they regretted most. Please take comfort, as you know that he did the Lord's work 🕊️

    Our sincerest condolences to Nancy and Family from Wayne and Diana Allen. Keith was such a giving selfless person that I will never forget him. As a former neighbor, he always went out of his way to make sure you knew he was there to assist and/or support any project you undertook. God certainly will not have to look far to find a more willing soldier in Keith.

    He will be missed.
