I loved Keith's tussles with Shawn Ray. They were entertaining to say the least.

Apparently when it came to paying his bills, Keith had the attitude that "Charlie Don't Surf".

Hey Vince, did Keith tell you any stories about this guy other than that he was 'always bitter'?

No, Keith never talked about Robby Robinson. Robby was a contender and yet that little guy Zane beat him. Was it politics? Was it his colour? Guys that good have to wonder if prejudice plays a part in this culture. Sergio Oliva and Serge Nubret were screwed big time. No black won a Mr America until 1970 when Chris Dickerson won.

Keith got bitten by a spider and it impacted on him and changed his life big time. He suffered for years. His leg would swell up to 31 inches.....his calf that is! Every time he started to do something about his obesity he would get ill and end up in hospital. So, we have no idea what he was faced with. He battled on and did what he could but it was a pity that he moved to Vegas from Hawaii because he left his kids there. He was fortunate to have a mate who helped him out in the last couple of years before he died. Yes, our own Stunt Movie.

Guys like Keith made the forums what it is.

I remember me and sarcasm back in the day used to savagely own him about his fatness, but he took it all in good humour

He was a good fellow but this bit here is absolute bullshit.  In his more lucid moments, he admitted that he could have done better.  Let's not pretend the man walked on water, Vince.  He was talking about losing weight for years.  It's frustrating, watching someone claim that shit and then basically do fuck all.  The whole board was pulling for him to get rid of some of it (that in itself is indicative of the magnitude of the problem).

Hmmmm..... What to type here  considering everything I had to do with Keith....

I liked Keith.....He was a great story teller and personally was a lot of fun....

Business wise....He stole money from me but I forgave him in the end....

Porn wise.... Yes he was addicted....I am sure there are no members here that knew that Keith had started a porn site and was making some money from it... I do because it was something he wanted me to invest in...

I have quite a few stories on Keith....Many very interesting... Some worth telling and some I wonder if I even should discuss since he has passed... I will leave it up to you to decide if you want to hear them or not.....My view on when you die who gives a shit what is said... Your dead.

Keith was one of those men, the select few, that you knew were special.

He was among those men who could walk on water, and perform feats of grandeur, and will be missed.

He may have started a porn business, but it was merely to help women with their careers, not out of selfish reasons.

Keith had a porn site? That is something he had in common with Goodrum, I mean, Goodrum boasted of having had such a site. One would have to live in Vegas to have the mind set that just about anything goes.

He never asked me to invest in any enterprise, porn or otherwise. I almost brought him out to Australia to help me promote my gym. Had second thoughts when I found out his size.

But he was a good promoter and could convince others to have a go at some new business. He felt he had the recipe for a MMA gym in Vegas. Was going to be huge and so on. Well,

I wondered how it was going to make a profit because of the competition there and the cheap rates for memberships, etc. Obviously others weren't convinced and anyway the property

market went sour and that changed everything because people didn't have much spare money for luxuries.

Come on, Travis, spill the beans. What stories do you have that we want to hear!

On March 1, 1998 my life changed forever.

I woke up and my lower leg was killing me.  I went to the hospital with 103 fever and barely able to walk.  I was bit by what the doctors told me was a brown recluse spider.  To make a very very long story short, I spent the next 28 days in the hospital and the following 6 months barely able to walk and actually crawling on my hands and knees and spending hours in the bath tub because I couldn’t get out.  I moved to Las Vegas.


My leg less than 24 hours after getting bit.







I opted to keep my leg against the doctor’s recommendation of amputation.  There are times I regret that decision, but overall I am happy I did.  I have had many complications and other medical things happen to me as a result of this bite.  The most damaging and discouraging is the weight gains due to the inactivity and depression that had set-in because I just couldn’t workout or do things I am accustomed to doing.  I went from riding my bike 28 miles a day 3 to 4 days a week and pulling a 120 lb. truck tire around Diamond Head Crater, still benching 500, to being stuck in a bathtub for hours because of the pain I had in my leg and lower back.  I would literally at times be crawling through my condo in Las Vegas on my hands and knees and collapse in the middle of the floor for an hour or more.  This intense pain lasted for the next 4 years.  There were times I couldn't get out of my car in the parking lot of my condo and would sleep in my car.

Monthly reactions to my lower leg resulted in 103 degree fever, severe reddening of the lower leg, peeling of the skin, tremendous swelling, calf would swell to 31"+, fluid leakage from the lower leg and extreme pain.   As recent as Christmas of 2006 I spent two weeks in the hospital in Waimea, HI because my leg swelled so badly.  I am not blaming the spider bite for the weight gain.  I can't blame anyone but myself.  All the years I was training I didn't diet like a bodybuilder.  I generally ate what I wanted because I knew I would just work it off.  I was very active.  The spider bite just made it hard or almost impossible to do any kind of training.  The pain was that bad and I have a very high pain tolerance.  I just never thought about the repercussions from lying around the house and eating.  I didn't do anything different or more than I ever did before the bite.  But, the big difference was I wasn't in the gym or training like before either.  I spent the first 40 years of my life being so active and physical; it all just came to a sudden stop.  But, I truly think that it was those 40 years of being extra healthy got me through the past 10 years.

A Totally Different Person

Well from the inactivity and depression that set in I ended up gaining 200 lbs. in about 13 months.  I blame myself for everything.  I could have dieted but I just never thought about the long term effects.  I am very embarrassed and I have become a sort of "recluse" myself.  I went from being the life of the party and being so happy 24 hours of the day to staying home and not wanting to see anyone.  Just until recently I would avoid seeing any of my old friends I grew up with or knew.  I would make up excuses why not to see them.  I was so embarrassed the way I looked.  Growing up and later in life people always looked up to me.  I used to have people come up to me to tell me how much I have helped them in their lives.  Now I was weak, fat and lost all my confidence.  I hated myself and I hated the way I looked.  I just couldn't see anyone.  To say I never thought about just ending everything would be a lie.  The thing that kept me from doing anything that stupid was when I thought about my two daughters and grandchildren.  I know they love me, I know they would miss me.  I just couldn't think about how much it would hurt them.  So I would immediately lose any thought of doing something stupid.  I truly owe my "will to live" to them.

My strength has diminished greatly too (from bench pressing just shy of 600 lbs. to barely doing 225 lbs.)  This was the most embarrassing and humiliating part of the past several years besides the weight gain.  It seemed like just when I am getting back into shape and getting my strength back I would get sick again.  Just a couple summers ago I had my bench back up over 400 lbs. and doing reps with 3I5 lbs. on the seated military press.  Then that Christmas I ended up in the hospital cause my leg swelled up so bad.  I loved going to the gym everyday and riding my bike and rollerblading.  That is what I miss more than anything.  And it's unbelievable the depression that sets in.  There are so many stories yet so little space.

Making a Comeback in 2011

Well, now I am feeling 100 times better and am back in the gym.  My strength is what is coming back very fast.  I have set a goal for myself and look forward to reaching it soon.  I want to be here to see my kids and grandkids grow up.  I want to see my old friends.  I want to bench press over 500 lbs. again and be able to walk anywhere and have people look at me because I am muscular again, not fat.  I want my life back and I am NOW motivated to do it.  When I do, look for me on Oprah.  I will post progress pics as I go along.

And, thank you for reading all this shortened version of my life but I am far from being a writer and write how I talk.  So the people who know me can easily imagine me saying what I write.  I am done procrastinating.

We don't get many celebrities on Getbig. Keith was that. Because of his health he was limited in what he could do so I guess he spent a lot of time on the internet. Getbig was one of his homes online and boy did he have a lot to say.

If he had not been bitten by that awful spider I doubt we would have seen Keith here. Keith was a tough guy, physically, so he didn't complain about his health, fitness and situation. I can assure you he suffered plenty and knew what he

had to do to regain his health. That was something he couldn't overcome. People who are not morbidly obese have no idea how hard it is to lose heaps of weight. He tried several times only to be twarted by health problems. It is a worry

that he might have used some prescription drugs to assist some weight loss that might have contributed to his demise. Stunt Movie will know but it is just speculation. People were writing to Keith with all kinds of advice.
