Carl F. KeithCarl F. Keith, age 85, of 252 Pennsylvania Avenue, died peacefully at his home on Saturday, April 16, 2016, with his family by his side.

Carl was born on January 22, 1931 in South Waverly, PA, a son of the late Guy and Mae (Weller) Keith. He was married to his best friend and the love of his life, Marcia Wright on October 29, 1949. They lovingly raised their family and have always called Trumansburg their home. Most always seen together, whether it be their daily walks in the village, golfing, or just having coffee at Shur-Save, their friendly smiles and warm conversations were welcomed by everyone. Carl enjoyed his morning donut runs at Ron Don’s and golf outings with friends.  Carl operated the family farm on Jacksonville Road for many years and also worked in the printshop of Wilcox Press in Ithaca while farming.  He worked with Dick Lowe at Lowe’s Soft Water, a working friendship that spanned several years.

Carl is survived by his wife of 66 years, Marcia and his children; David (Steve) Keith of Portland, Maine, Diane (Doug) Millspaugh of Trumansburg, Debbie Lincoln of Trumansburg and John (Kate) Keith of Tuxedo, NY; 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

At his request, there will be a Celebration of Carl’s life, held at the Trumansburg Golf Course, 23 Halsey Street, on May 14, 2016.  The family will receive friends from 2:00pm to 5:00pm that day.
