Keith was happiest on his family ranch with his wife and animals (cows and donkeys). He was a member of the Jewett Volunteer Fire Department and the East Lake Limestone Volunteer Fire Department.

Keith was preceded in death by his father and twin brother, Kyle Edward Gantt, who passed away at three days of age. Surviving family members include wife of fourteen years, Cheryl (Melasky) Gantt of Jewett; mother, Marceline of Lake Jackson; brother, Gary & wife, Linda of West Columbia; daughters, Jennifer of Jewett and Coleen & husband, Scott of Dawson and son, Brian of Caldwell.

Keith was a country boy and lived in his blue jeans. The Gantt family invites everyone to dress comfortably for the service. This is the way Keith would have wanted it.
