Keith Joseph Latendresse peacefully passed away in his sleep on the morning of Monday, July 18th.
Keith was born to Edward Paul and Jeannette Leone (Isaacson) Latendresse on January 23rd, 1973 and grew up the youngest of four siblings (Kathleen, Mark, and Michael).
Keith excelled in athletics during his time at Brighton High School, to which he received a scholarship to play football at Michigan Technological University. There he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering, played four years of college football, and met his now ex-wife Heidi. Keith was hired by Babcock and Wilcox Co. out of college, and started with B&W in 1997 as a Field Service engineer in Dallas, TX. He worked his way up to a District Sales Manager covering the States of WI, MN, ND, & SD to which he was very well respected by all those around him. After college, him and Heidi married, and had four kids who Keith is survived by (Nicholas, Owen, Ashley, and Oscar Latendresse).
During his time of health, Keith was a loving, involved, and caring husband and father who loved to spend his time coaching his sons in both football and baseball, teaching all the kids how to hunt and fish, spend time up north in Keewenaw County with the whole family, and teaching his kids the importance of understanding the love and grace of our Savior Jesus Christ. Keith had a very big heart, and would converse with anyone and everyone who either wanted or needed a conversation. Keith struggled with health related issues in the last five years of his life that contributed to the premature end of his time here on earth; however, his love for his kids and family never changed during that time. Keith never rejected or questioned his faith in our Savior Jesus Christ, and saved from the grace of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for all of our sins. Keith is now resting peacefully in heaven waiting for the triumphant return of Jesus Christ to this earth.
