Randal "Randy" S Keith

August 23, 1955 — April 2, 2023

Randal S. “Randy” Keith, 67, of Lexington, Nebraska, passed away on Sunday, April 2, 2023, at the Good Samaritan Society in Grand Island. 

He was born on August 23, 1955, in North Platte, Nebraska to Fred and Zella Mae (Stevenson) Keith. He attended public schools in North Platte and graduated from North Platte High School with the class of 1973. While in high school, Randy worked at Gibson’s Discount Store where he would meet the love of his life, Susan. 

On May 29, 1976, Randy was united in marriage to Susan Pooschke in Stapleton, Nebraska at Susan’s parents’ home. The family made their home in North Platte where Randy was employed at Firestone for a few years before he would take a job with for the state with the Nebraska Department of Roads. In 1984, the family moved to Lexington where Randy would work his way up to Maintenance Supervisor, before retiring in 2017. 

Randy was a part of a musically inclined family. They all loved to sing, and Randal was an exceptional guitar player. He was also a great bowler. He loved spending time with his friends at the bowling alley and was also a youth bowling coach and alongside his brother, Tim they formed and started The High and Bye travel league. It was rare to drive past Randal’s house and not see an impeccable yard and him sitting there on the porch. If he wasn’t outside, he was inside watching Wheel of Fortune.
