His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often showed. He was a bright and kind man who had an immense passion for life. Anyone who knew Keith knew that he was the most loving relative and friend anyone could ask for. In 2020, he became a member of Gethsemane Community Fellowship Baptist Church.
Keith will be loved and profoundly missed by his significant other Elnora (Molly) Boone; three brothers, Raymond C. Scott Jr. (Alma Scott), Charles S. Searcy (Johnette Searcy), and Kevin N. Matthews; and two aunts Glynis Rozzell-Roberts and Paula Harris; three step-children Dion L. Boone (Vivian Ford), Likehea L. Overton (James Overton) and Tehran Boone; and eight step grandchildren whom he loved deeply. He also leaves to cherish his memory a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother, Carolyn S. Searcy and his father, Joe White.
