Age 76, of Upper St. Clair, became God’s Christian soldier, passing away after persevering decades of a valiant fight to never give up the will to live. Keith is survived by his beloved wife of 50 years, Roberta “Rikki” Walsh, his 3 children Meegan Walsh (Rich O’Neil), Robert Brian “Bobby” Walsh, and Katy Rose Phillips (Tom). He is the cherished grandfather of Ava Phillips, Natalie Phillips, Darik O’Neil (Catherine Walsh), Danielle O’Neil (Alex). Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Keith grew up waterskiing every summer at the lakefront family home in Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania. This time afforded him a water-skiing scholarship to Iowa State University. Recreation in his early years was both building and racing fast cars and motorcycles. As those passions shifted, his lifelong career in plumbing took over complemented by a wonderful family life with his wife, children, and pets. Camping, hunting, and other adventures with his family were a treat between business. Keith was extremely proud of his professional career of a third generation Master Plumber. The quality and attention to detail was evident in every project built. His company motto on every truck was an honored testament to his trade, "The Plumber Protects The Health of the Nation". Whether it was the construction of a hospital, school, shopping mall, new construction or repair to a residence, every aspect was respected and perfected to completion. His "old school" and "lost art" knowledge from lead pans to boilers was impeccable ~ he loved working with the tools and designing, his hands always moving, "wrenching" in his sleep.
