Keith was born on Sept. 28, 1984, to Rick Keith Haught and Patsy Darlene “Kirby” Haught in Edmond. He grew up living in Blackwell, and attended Peckham School and then Blackwell where he finished with his GED. While in high school, he was part of the wrestling team and also played baseball mostly from a young age. When he was about twelve, they had a cottonwood tree in the yard and he would say “If you can’t hit the ball over the tree you didn’t hit a home run.” As Keith’s son Sciden took up baseball, Keith savored the times watching Sciden play.
He enjoyed spending time when not working doing some swimming in the river and being with his friends. He enjoyed listening to many different styles of music. As well, Keith was known as the family joker, often with funny comments to make those around him laugh and smile.
He is survived by his parents of Blackwell; son, Sciden Thomas Haught of Blackwell; a brother, Evan Haught of Blackwell; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Preceded in death by grandparents, Mary and Charles Kirby of Blackwell; grandfather, Harold Haught of Ohio; two aunts, Penny Haught and Kathy Haught of Ohio; two uncles, Steve Haught of El Paso, Texas, and Terry Kirby of Blackwell.
Casketbearers will be Nathan Kreger, Jared Looper, Terrence Looper, Tyler Corbit, Josh Martinez, and Evan Haught.
