Keith was born in Leesburg, Virginia to Charles and Katherine Cooper and growing up he did many odd jobs until settling into the construction industry. In 1997 having moved to Minnesota, Keith began working in the ethanol industry and would continue in that for nearly 21 years.

Keith was a wonderful and loving husband; he was a great father, and an awesome brother.

Having a great love for motorcycles, he enjoyed riding whenever and wherever he could. He liked to fish and did a little hunting in his day and he thoroughly enjoyed doing his wood burning projects.

He gardened, loved going for walks, hiking, and being outdoors in general and could never get his fill of southern rock.
