Keith's Story

Text size

Keith St. Louis passed away Feb. 21, 2018, at the CVPH Medical Center with his family by his side. He was born Jan. 13, 1935, in Schenectady, N.Y., to Arlene T. and Bernice "Bobbie" Covey St. Louis.
After growing up in Schenectady, Keith joined the Army, where he was stationed in Juno, Alaska. While in the Army his children were born and shortly after, he went on to attend Cobleskill and Alfred Universities. Keith worked at Agway (GLF). He met his loving wife of over forty years there, and they continued with the company until retiring to their home of 20 years in Chittenango, N.Y.
Wishing to be closer to their beloved camp on Lake Champlain, Keith and Marcia left Chittenango and moved to their dream home in the Plattsburgh area. They enjoyed many happy years there and at the camp, watching their growing family, entertaining and relaxing in the sunshine and cool breezes.
Spending his childhood at the lake, Keith enjoyed boating, fishing, swimming and croquet. In later years, he introduced his wife and family to these things that meant so much to him. A cruise to Alaska, a trip to Hawaii and visits to family were a few of the many journeys Keith shared with his wife Marcia.
Sailing aboard the Marke, golfing, gardening, and spending time with Shih Tzus, Muffy and later Sophie, were the joys of his life. After the loss of Marcia, Keith moved to Willsboro, where he became an integral part of the community.
Though our hearts are heavy, we know he is at peace with Marcia.
Keith was predeceased by his beloved wife Marcia (Landers), sister Avis Mickey, brother Arlen "Junior," niece Carolyn; survived by daughter Dawn St. Louis and companion Richard Fields, son Grayling St. Louis; nephew Craig Giroux; sister-in-law Margaret (Peg) Landers and her children, Chris (Betsy) Landers, Jennifer (Paul) Neveu, and Danielle (Timothy) Hasselberg; sister-in-law Carol (Kevin) Myhill and their children, David and Michael Walton and their children; grandchildren Jessica (Michael), Covey (Joshua), and Christopher, great-grandson Riley; grandnieces and nephews, Boden, Hazel, Stella, Fletcher, George and Hannah.
Contributions may be made to the Humane Society or Children's Cancer Research Fund. Arrangements are entrusted to Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad St., Plattsburgh, NY 12901.
