    May you rest in piece, Keith, and enjoy your time with our Lord God. We will meet up with you in due time.

    The only way that I knew Keith was thru Chad. Chad spoke with fondness of his uncle. If I am not able to make the funeral, due to work and distance, please know that I am with you all in spirit.

    Love in Christ,
    Jim Boesen

    A good friend and neighbor. We will miss his involvement in bingo calling while he lived at One Oak Place

  5. Mary Tvedt says:

    Keith was a wonderful, generous man. It was a privilege to know him through my job at Touchmark. Keith was humble, always doing for others and being uncomfortable with recognition for it. Whether it was his military service or his many years of volunteering, he minimized his part. He’ll always be a hero to me and many others.

    My sympathy to Keith Nelson family. Many of us at One Oak Place have appreciated his many hours of
    volunteering. Also, when I lived at Touchmark back in 2009 and part of 2010, we found him so helpful in
    many instances. Lila E. Dahl

    I am a “One Oaker” and Keith was a friend. I know he was very sick. When I heard he had passed away — I said: “And he was such a NICE guy!” I guess one cannot get a better compliment!

    Sympathies to his family one and all!
