    "I enjoyed knowing Keith, mostly from a distance. I fondly remember the week he spent with us when training. I know he was a loving and faithful father and I extend my condolences to Millie, Abby, and all of his family. Dick"

    "I'm very sorry to hear of Keith's passing. Keith hired me for my first professional job at Kysor and he was a good boss. I appreciated his faith in me as a wet-behind-the-ears college student, and I enjoyed working for him. He taught me a lot of things that I still use today, now that I'm a manager myself. His favorite saying was "It's never easy", and I find myself saying that a lot. In later years I was always happy to see him around Cadillac and chat for a few minutes. He was a very intelligent person with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. I'm sorry that I didn't see his obituary in time to attend the funeral. The Zukausky family will be in our thoughts and prayers. "
