Everyone knew Keith Hoff as a giant of a man – both in stature and through his kind and caring nature. Keith was very generous as evidenced by his many quiet deeds and his helping others with building projects and advice. Two of his strongest attributes were his love of family and his sense of humor, which caused many a smile. Keith loved nature and also like to hunt, fish and try out new gadgets. Most of all, he liked to spend time at Black Hawk Lake with family and friends.
Keith was the rock of his family and will be greatly missed by his wife, An’Nyce, children and grandchildren: Ryan and Jill Hoff (Calan and Weston), James and Sara Hoff (Payton and Kendal), Jennifer and Chris Jones, Jim and Mariah Doolittle (Porter) and Libby and Ethan Anderson (Max and Hallie).
