Keith was born in Pocatello, ID on March 28, 1954 to William and Aimee Packard. When Keith was a young boy the family moved to Moscow, where he attended Moscow schools and graduated from Moscow High School in 1973. Immediately following high school, Keith, joined the U.S. Navy and served honorably aboard the U.S.S. Gray for over 2 years. He then attended Lewis-Clark State College and worked towards his Automotive Technician Degree.
Keith worked for the Moscow School District and the University of Idaho for several years, before a debilitating injury left him unable to work. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved fishing and camping. Being the Navy man he was, Keith was always learning as much as he could about Naval History and was always ready to share his knowledge.
Keith was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Michael Packard. He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law Gail and Lon Gray of Chula Vista, CA, nieces Maureen and Kristine, great nephew Zachary and numerous cousins.
