R.I.P. to a Friend and Good Member Keith Thomas

Keith Thomas of Milwaukee, Wisconsin was known by most as K Thomas on the LaPlata Virtual Railfan chat. He was a daily regular in the chatroom.To the APRHF he was a Pullman member and helped us quite a bit with fundraising. Keith had a neat wit and always had a good joke to share. Keith, Amy and I also had a fun time riding the South Shore line together on a day trip. He was also particularly fond of the 24 hour train watch event that was held here in LaPlata last year. He even designed one of the more popular hoodies that was needed at the event. He is wearing it in the photo below.

Keith is in the lower right of this photo with the blue hoodie he designed. “Stay Behind the Yellow Line” it proclaims. The Nations family and another guest are at the table. They all just finished lunch.

Keith passed away suddenly on June 30th, 2019 and his celebration of life was Friday July 5th,2019. He loved to share a Bud Light with friends. So if you pop one open be sure and give Keith a virtual cheers. He is already missed by all of us at the APRHF HQ and by his friends in the LaPlata chatroom.
