I’ve know Keith for many years. We’ve had some really fun times. Such a devoted father, hard worker & a loyal friend. When he married Mylissa, I knew he had met his other half. With his kids and Mylissa’s kid, it just completed their circle. And that’s the way they became the Puerto Rican Brady bunch😀 Such happiness is
rare, but they wore it very well. No matter how sick he was, he always smiled and made you feel loved. I will miss him everyday of my life. Keith, you will always be in my heart my friend💜🇵🇷. Rest In Peace.😞🙏
To Mylissa and “The Tribe”, my most heartfelt condolences, I love you all very much and I’m here💜

I first met Keith in 1988 at the CRSD Convention when we were both delegates. We hit it off immediately and a great friendship was started. When I became General Chairman of the Union , Keith was the greatest asset you could ever ask for. He was one of the most honest hard working person I ever knew. When my office was in South Amboy he would bring the kids there at least once a week. They were his greatest joy. My best memories of Keith were sharing beers and hugs. This world lost a great person and I lost a great friend. He was a good man. Rest in Peace my Brother

I met Keith when I started working at transit. He was always friendly to everyone and watched out for his Brother's back. Keith is the reason I became involved in the Union. He loved and was very proud of all his kids and loved to talk about them if he was asked. Mylissa was the love of his life. Rest in Peace my Brother. 🙏🙏🙏🙏💔💔💔
