Keith R. Andes

Oct. 3, 1963 Sept. 12, 2011

Keith R. Andes, 47, formerly of Waukesha and Green Bay, passed away peacefully at home in Tucson, Ariz., on Sept. 12, 2011. He was born Oct. 3, 1963, in Teaneck, N.J., to Thomas E. Andes and Lois A. (Murray) Andes.

Keith was employed by Ruiz Engineering in Tucson and most recently held the position of executive director of Trinity Management Company. Keith graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a degree in business administration. His exceptional work ethic and dedication to succeed allowed him to excel in all of his career paths.

Keith is survived by Steven Speth, his partner of 19 years; his mother and siblings, Kathleen (Ronald) Wojs, Eileen Andes, Thomas E. (Karen) Andes Jr., Michael (Nancy) Andes, John (Vickie) Andes and Mary (Mark) Janke; and many nieces and nephews.

Keith enjoyed the outdoors, including cycling and hiking. He found great satisfaction in gardening while living in Green Bay. An avid sports fan, he followed his favorite teams which included the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Arizona Cardinals, but his loyalty always remained with the Brewers and the Packers. Keith will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his father.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in his honor to Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org) would be greatly appreciated.

Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at Poplar Creek Church, 17770 W. Cleveland Ave., New Berlin.
