Springs and Kihei, Maui,

HI at the time of his


Keith was the fourth

child born to Lena and

Herman Volk in Rugby

ND in September 1953.

family he deeply cared

numerous nieces,

nephews, aunts, uncles

and cousins who love

him. He is predeceased

ers Ken and Kelly.

Keith graduated from

Rugby High School and

worked at Bickler’s Jack

and Jill, Red Owl Super-

market and Crooks Lanes

and Lounge in Rugby, ND

prior to moving to Cali-

fornia. With his en-

trepreneurial spirit, Keith

was self-employed and

built KV Paint and

Decorating to a thriving

business in Beaumont,

CA. Keith was a member

of the Lions Club of Beau-

mont. Following his re-

tirement in 2014, Keith

continued with his pro-

perty management busi-

ness and vacation rentals

of his oceanfront homes

in Maui, Hawaii where he

cared for guests and treat-

ed them like family.

Keith lived for his daily

swims and long walks

where he would strike up

conversations with any-

one he met. He loved a

good story, but if the Los

Angeles Lakers were play-

ing a game, storytelling

was only allowed during

commercials! Keith will

be remembered for his

generosity to his family

and friends, his intense

work ethic, wry smile,

caustic sense of humor

and his enjoyment of life!

There will be no funeral

services per his wishes. A

celebration of life will be

organized by his family.
