Midwest marina patriarch dies at 92

Posted on

Robert G. Keith, who owned and operated Keith’s Marina in West Bend, Wis., died April 1. He was 92.

Keith bought the marina on Big Cedar Lake in 1968. In 1990, the family added to the business and now displays more than 200 boats in its showroom.

“Although we purchased the business in 2001, until just two weeks ago, our 92-year-old father, Robert Keith, came to work each day to talk with our customers and to make certain his five sons ‘tow the line,’ ” the Keith brothers said in a statement. “And now, with his passing, our family commitment to his legacy and the business extends to the next generation of Keiths, with some of our kids also working in the business.”

A Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, with burial set for today. Memorials to the National Kidney Foundation are appreciated.

    My grandfather was a saint and managed to create and grow a wildly successful marina starting in his fifties. His legacy is something my dad and uncles will carry on for years to come. He will be missed daily.
