San Francisco, d. 1996, hit by drunk driver

Keith was a friend of mine -- one of the Park crew and tight friends with Bob, his co-worker at Graves. He was a walking messenger -- a tall guy with reddish-brown hair that he kept close-cropped. He was good-natured and low-key so perhaps not very well known in the messenger scene. I remembered my sister and a friend of mine, both non-messengers, talked about how couriers weren't particularly congenial to them, but both mentioned Keith as someone who stood out and made the effort to talk to them and make them feel comfortable. One day, Keith was headed to the corner store near his house and hit by a drunk driver. I understand that the driver faced no charges. Keith was a good guy and I hope more of his story gets told. -A
