Obituary - Craig Allan Keith

Craig Allan Keith, age 52, passed away January 26,2022 in Dover, Delaware. Craig was born November 16, 1969 in Mena, Arkansas and lived his life on the farm outside Lowry City, Missouri. At a young age he was baptized and became a member of the

Valley Center United Church of Christ. Upon graduating from Lakeland High School in 1988 he joined the U.S. Air Force serving seven years After leaving the Air Force, he lived and worked in the Milford, Delaware area until his passing.

Craig came home faithfully every year, except those years he was in the service, during November to be a part of our annual family deer camp. During his time here, he was able to celebrate his birthday, deer season and Thanksgiving altogether with his family and friends. Since we only saw him once a year, we spoiled him immensely. Our whole world revolved around what Craig wanted to have for dinner (anything that did not have onions or green peppers in it); what kind of dessert he wanted (usually something pumpkin with whipped cream) and how many pancakes he wanted for his birthday breakfast. Our family deer camps and Thanksgivings in the future will never be the same without Craig being with us.

Craig was proceeded in death by his grandpa Ralph Elliott and grandparents Clyde and Maxine Keith. He is survived by his dad and mom, Gale and Peggy Kalberloh; his grandma Fern Elliott; a sister, Shawna Kalberloh and family; a brother, Dusty Kalberloh

and family; a special aunt and uncle Marsha “Aunt Minnie” and Reber Herdliska; other aunts and uncles, Donna Hughes, Sharon McLerran, Fred Kalberloh, Nancy Holt, and Jim Kalberloh; as well as other extended family and many, many close friends. Craig, also, leaves his Delaware “family” and his very close friends, Diane Walters and Ron Daisy.

Even though Craig’s passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts, and we will miss him dearly, we know he can breathe free now.
