Keith was a member of Bartlesville Southern Baptist Church from 1998 until his death and enjoyed the fellowship of his church. He loved to read his Bible and other spiritual books by authors who believed the way he did... the Bible is God’s holy word without error! He enjoyed memorizing Scripture and going over them when he would awake at night. He called them his Rainbow in the night. He was preceded in death by his loving parents and one brother, Edward A. Elliott. He is survived by his wife Gwenda of the home; his son Dr. Larry Shane Elliott (wife Jennifer); daughter Angela Gail Hackler (husband Curtis); three grandsons, Kaid, Konnor and Klein Hackler and two granddaughters, Kylie and Morgan Elliott; and brother Charles F.

He enjoyed the outdoors; hunting, fishing, and camping were some of his favorite activities. He was also a sports enthusiast who enjoyed playing baseball, basketball, and golf and rooting for the OU Sooners. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Keith’s memory to Bartlesville Southern Baptist Church.
