Alfred “Keith” loved most of all helping his family, taking care of and spending time with them. He and his son Keith loved listening to the music that they shared almost daily, enjoying many activities that they loved to do together including watching YouTube videos about many subjects that were entertaining and informative, sharing their time, and that special bond that they had every day in every way, and so much more.

As a family A. Keith, Lori, Keith and Molly (the family dog) shared walks, life and dreams together.

Keith had such an amazing ability to fix almost anything, whether around the house, working on mechanical projects or baking his amazingly delicious apple pies.

He worked as a supervisor for Electric Boat in Groton for almost 40 years where he shared his vast knowledge and abilities. He was a communicant of St. Michael Church, a deeply religious man who devoted everything he had to his family.
