Passed Sep 20, 2015
Keith was born Oct 6, 1954, the same year as most of the class of 1972. He was a truly good man. A portion of his obituary is listed in this section. The following was written by John Carter, Class of 1972: "After 8 years of battling with life Keith Humphrey passed this morning around 4 am, he was surrounded by family members. He had been battling with his health and had been in a nursing home where he and his brother were in the same room until God call his brother home a few years ago. On Friday Keith had a turn for the worse, the doctor did all they could but only could just make him comfortable. At 4 am this morning Keith close his eyes and went to sleep in the arms of the Lord. Absent from the body is present with the Lord. Let's remember the Humphrey family in our thoughts and prayers."

These words were written by another alumni

“Not only was he an exceptional Coach but an astounding Educator. He loved his players & students to no end.

He was like a Father figure to many of us at Northside High School. He taught us to love & respect each other. It didn't matter if it was the locker room or , the classroom. He was very passionate about lessons he taught us. He motivated, mentored & encouraged us to be confident & excell with a purpose.

He would say "It's not where you're from but what you accomplish & finish strong with. He was most beloved by many of us & we will miss him. “
