Keith is no stranger to tools, engines and equipment. Before retiring, he worked as an order puller at Home Depot, counter person for Precision Power Tools and he delivered parts for Napa/Reibes. He has also worked for a Master Landscaper/Licensed Arborist, becoming very familiar with landscaping and the tools needed in the trade.
Keith and his wife have been residents of Grizzly Flats for 12 years and prior to that he helped his father build the family's first house in the community in the 1980s. Sadly, the Caldor Fire destroyed the place Keith had called home.
West Slope Foundation is pleased to have Keith coordinating the Community Tool Shed. His background, including serving in the U.S. Navy from 1965 through 1969 and being deployed to Viet Nam three times, makes him a perfect match for the job. In addition, Keith knows from firsthand experience what it's like to be a disaster survivor. This knowledge will be appreciated by the community members who come to the Tool Shed to borrow what they need as they rebuild their homes lost during the Caldor Fire.
