Keith Allen McDowell left this world too soon, on March 30th, 2024. He was born in Indianapolis November 25th, 1957, to parents Ralph Glaze and Carolyn (Lambert) McDowell. 

Keith grew up in Indianapolis and graduated from South Port High School. 

He proudly served his country in the United States Army. 

In 2005, Keith married the love of his life, his sweetheart, Kimberly. They shared nearly 20 wonderful years together. 

He worked many years as a truck driver, before retiring. 

He and Kimberly were valuable members of New Creations Restorations Church. 

Keith was a strong, compassionate gentleman, who put God first. A skilled driver and mechanic, there was nothing he couldn’t fix, and he enjoyed restoring cars. His Monte Carlo (aka, his mistress) received a lot of his love and attention. He and Kim loved to ride their Harleys together. Keith loved music and rocking out at concerts. Above all, he adored his family and spent as much time with them as he could.
