Keith Alan Robinette Jr., 38, passed away on December 18th, he was sent to find peace surrounded by his immediate family at Genesis Hospital in Zanesville, Ohio. Keith was born August 2nd, 1983 at Grant Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. He moved to Senecaville, Ohio with his family early in life, he attended Brooke Elementary, Meadowbrook Middle School and graduated from Meadowbrook Highschool in 2003.
Keith had many passions, he loved football (and was an active part of the Meadowbrook Football Team throughout school), he loved, and always looked forward to watching the Ohio State Buckeyes. He kept up on recruiting, players and stats regularly. He loved music, the arts and was a skilled photographer, a poetic soul and deep thinker. Of all his passions, none matched his passion for people. Whether he was just making small talk, trying to make them laugh or brightening their day anyway he could, he found purpose in that. He was as selfless a person as they come, he never found material things to be as important as connecting with people, giving and loving.
There’s not enough words or space to fully encapsulate who he was, the joy he brought to so many lives, or the light the world will now be without. He is survived by his father, Keith Robinette Sr, his mother, Alyce McFadden, his younger brothers, Ryan Robinette (his wife Jenna Robinette) and Austin Robinette (his girlfriend Shala Warren and his sons Mason & Hunter Robinette and their mother Katie Terwilliger), his aunt and uncle, Kathy & Richard Fritz, his aunt Julie Olsen, his cousins Chrissy-Yantes Robinette, Mark Yantes, Anthony Robinette (his son Carl Jr and daughter Sophia), Rick Chafin, David Yantes, Marky Yantes, Melissa Yantes, Afton Chafin, Jennifer Church, Susan Chafin, Lori & Tony Litchfield, Johnny Chafin and numerous other relatives and loved ones.
