Keith William Karasch

Keith William Karasch was a joy to all. His humor and wit brought smiles to all who knew him. He enjoyed country music and often modeled himself another “man in black,” like his favorite, Johnny Cash. Keith traveled to many live shows and was on the stage twice with Dolly Parton as she sang a song to him. Traveling to Hawaii, the Bahamas and many, many other cities filled his life with unforgettable experiences. Keith had a real grasp of sports and knew all the stats of his favorite teams and players. In the ’70s, he threw the first pitch at a Milwaukee Brewers game. He supported many organizations and helped out with money and time as he could. In his younger days, he rode his bicycle to work and rode in 50-mile events. Keith was a union factory worker and put in a full career earning a pension. Keith died at his home in Sheboygan on Jan. 10, 2017. His loss was sudden and unexpected. He will be sorely missed by many.

The family wishes to thank all the people who helped Keith keep his humor and joy, his freedom and health, his community and home life, and called him a friend. Keith is survived by his three younger sisters, Karen Wittwer, Kristine Meyer and Kathy Molinaro, nephews, nieces, and families.
