He was an avid Jay Football booster and loved watching good baseball, having just gone to the 2011 College World Series with his son and grandson. He loved working in his garden, looking for antiques, hunting and fishing, and attending country picnics. But most of all, Keith loved his family; especially his grandchildren, who were the loves of his life and the apple of his eye. "Pop" loved them dearly.

Other survivors are his mother-in-law: Lucille Brown, and many wonderful nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by a beloved son: Adam Aaron Scheperle; his parents: Clifford and Emily Scheperle; and his father-in-law: Bill Brown. "Keith was Truly Our Hero."
