Keith was born in Flint, Michigan on April 16th, 1987. He and his father, Keith L. Morris, Sr. would move to Jackson Springs when he was 2 years old. Keith was a graduate of East Montgomery High School, class of 2005 where he played on their football and All-Star Baseball team. He had attended Methodist College in Fayetteville. Keith was an incredible craftsman and had applied his skills at Southern Pines Wood Working and later the Heritage Flag Company. In addition to his father, Keith is survived by his brother A.J., his aunts Gloria Jean Back (David Mata) and Sylvia Arlene Kitchens (Roy) and his uncle James Morris (Rosemary). He is also survived by his many cousins.

Those that know him, reflect on Keith as A Brother, Son, and True Friend. He never looked at the negative of anything. Great funny loving guy; Always so kind; Energetic, Cheerful, Positive; Extremely reliable; Hard worker; Loves baseball and football. Paperboy. He was a giver. He always stopped at the Coca-cola plant and grabbed a paper. He knew the true definition of sacrifice and was always willing to give you anything he had. He always showed up 30 min early and never waited for instruction, he found something to do. His dad was the center of his universe. He was a more like a brother than a friend and will be missed by all! Rest easy truest friend & Fly high kind soul.
