Age 83, went to be with Jesus on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at around 3 p.m. after many years of Jesus helping him through his pain.

Keith was born on November 29, 1932, to Homer and Mina (Converse) Radford in his Grammas’ house in Wolf Creek, Josephine County, Oregon.

He is survived by his wife, Janet; and sons, Homer Dale and wife Patty Radford of Myrtle Creek, OR, Beverly James and wife Rebecca Kokos of San Antonio, TX, and Shawn and Paula Means of Hubbard, OR; eight grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren; and numerous and much loved nieces and nephews.

Keith will be greeted by his mother and father; his son, Richard; daughter, Katie; as well as his brother Gordon; and sister, June.

His father once said “He is a Jack of all trades and an ace at some, so he was just a regular Jack-ace.” Which proved to be wildly true, during the course of his life adventure he found himself driving trucks for many years, working in sawmills, then a successful gunsmith locksmith for a quarter century which eventually lead to a well-deserved retirement. He enjoyed our forests, hunting, hiking and just being with nature.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that you cherish your moments with family and friends. Make time for memories daily. Donations can be made to Encounter Church of Canyonville, Oregon.

A Celebration of Life is scheduled at Encounter Church on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at 2 p.m.
