This is so sad to read. RIP Keith, your children knew you loved em.

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.

I know we gave him shit for making excuses but his leg was so bad that Docs recommended he have it amputated. He was battling a tough deal.

I talked to Keith for over an hour about a week ago. He said he had been busy with business and had spent time with family. He said he hadn't been online for a while and didn't know what was going on here at Getbig. So we had a few laughs when I updated him on his adversary Vince G. That always made him laugh. He seemed his usual happy, confident self. His birthday was on Dec 31 and we talked about getting older. Keith had a great sense of humour and was quick witted. He told me things about the gym business that helped me in my gym. He was a good gym manager and worked in Hawaii. The current financial crises put paid to any huge gym Keith had planned for Las Vegas. He also departed ways with former mate, Pete Gymkowski. Keith said he had a coffee label in Hawaii that was doing well. So he sure had a lot of irons in the fire.

It comes as a shock that he is gone. There are pages of condolences on his Facebook page and that partly tells us who this man was. His stories on Getbig are the stuff of legends and I particularly liked his funny stuff. He send pizzas to Goodrum a couple of years ago! The pranks this guy came up with. What a pity I never got to meet Keith. He said his leg hasn't given him much trouble lately but he was in hospital with pneumonia or something last year. That spider bite changed Keith and his health was awful for years afterwards. He got depressed and began overeating and doing very little. He started to gain weight but in reality he usually carried about 300 pounds. Keith felt he was getting better and was getting back into training.

Its sad too think if he hadnt of fallen asleep on the floor and got bitten by that spider he'd probably still be alive today, amazing how the smallest things can change the course of a persons life.

I think it's safe to say that he provided a  great deal of entertainment and great stories on here.

You will not be forgotten, Keith.

PIP, my friend. I was looking forward to your moving back to Hawaii this spring. It would have been a pleasure and honor to finally meet you in person and maybe even arm wrestle you.

I am so shocked and a bit devastated by this news. I remember Keith back during his bouncer days at Tequila Willies back in the 1980s in Manhattan Beach, CA.

Iím stunned. My condolences to his family.  I helped get Keith a job at Tequila Willies in Manhattan Beach back in the mid 80ís since I knew him from Ray Mentzers Gym. We communicated every so often and I always enjoyed him. You will be remembered and missed my friend.
and keep moving!
