Keith Clair Kyser, 81, a lifelong Battle Creek resident, died at home on Tuesday, July 30, 2019.

Keith was born August 30, 1937 in Battle Creek, the son of Milton and Eva (Palmer) Kyser. He was a 1955 graduate of Battle Creek Central High School. Keith was employed for 43 years in the ink (printing) business and retired from IPI after 23 years on August 31, 1999

Keith Clair Kyser married Elaine Elizabeth Stevens on June 8, 1957 at Central Christian Church in Battle Creek. Keith was preceded in death by Elaine, his wife of 57 years on June 9, 2014. Surviving are his three daughters, Danette (Michael) Squires, Cynthia (Garry) Moore and Julie (Raymond) Przystas all of Battle Creek; eight grandchildren and three great-grandsons and one great-granddaughter.

Keith was an exceptional golfer and loved the game. Keith was outgoing. He had a quick sense of humor, and he had the ability to make others laugh. He enjoyed reading, especially crime novels. He enjoyed the outdoors; feeding the birds, grilling out, and sitting on his swing. He was also the Daddy to two very loyal dogs, Mitzi and Trixie whom he loved and spoiled every single day. Keith will be remembered as a very much loved and respected father, grandfather, father-in-law, and golfer. He will be sadly missed.

Memorial services were officiated by longtime family friend, Rev. Barbara Burrill for Keith's family at Floral Lawn Memorial Gardens 11:00 a.m. Monday, August 5, 2019. Arrangements were made by the Farley Estes Dowdle Funeral Home & Cremation Care. Memorial contributions may be made to The Juvenile Diabetes Association.
