He was born on February 9, 1959 in Escanaba, Michigan, the son of Donald LeRoy and LaVern Marie (Couillard) Swanson.
Keith earned his GED in 1976. He managed multiple convenience stores around the central Missouri area, including his most recent position with Breaktime in Holts Summit.
Keith loved to groove to some 60’s and 70’s “oldies” music. He was as nice as they come and in his younger years, quite a social butterfly. He could make friends with just about anyone. As a result of living in Chicago for a time, Keith was a dedicated fan of the Cubs, the Bears and the Bulls. He enjoyed watching T.V. and was most interested in Crime shows like NCIS. Keith had a dark and interesting sense of humor but you could trust that he would give you the shirt off his own back to someone in need.
Survivors include:; His sister, Tami Kiegerl (husband Karl); two nieces, Toni Schiesz and Katrina Kiegerl; one nephew, Brett Homer; two great nephews, Jordan, Joel; and his best friend, Meghan Minor; and his other siblings, Brian Swanson and Kim Homer.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his nephew, Cameron Homer.
Private services will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Keith Swanson Memorial Fund.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
