Always smiling, just a really sweet guy, I know he will be missed by so many. May he now RIP in heaven.
Michelle and family, Please except our condolences… Pete and I have wonderful memories of you two. We talk about you and Keith often. Pete still listens to George Jones and I remember our double date those 31 years ago. It still makes me laugh. Remember? I hate that we have lost touch over the years.
O Father of all, we pray to thee for those we love, but no longer see. Grant them peace; let light perpetual shine upon them; and in thy loving wisdom and almighty power work in them the good purpose of thy perfect will. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Your college roommate and matron of honor at your wedding,

i will alway remember the time we shared together at the conference for the Florida Association of School Resource Officers. We were always a family because of the relationship we formed through that organization. You will forever be missed but never forgotten by your extended family from Martin County.
Michele, I was so sorry to hear about Keith. While we have not been in touch as much lately, I always have such great and fond memories of our times together. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, wish I could be there for the service but I will be thinking about you.
Michele, my heart aches for you, the boys, Keith’s mom and the rest of the family. Heaven has gained another angel. His infectious smile and laugh will truly be missed. I thought about him a few weeks ago when I came across something he brought me from when he got called for a “special duty” when he was a resource deputy at Westwood and I was working in the attendance/dean’s office. Love and prayers for you all, Jennifer Baer Ervin (you know me best as Lizzie Horton’s Mom)
Didn’t know Keith myself but he was a wonderful person to my mother for many years when he worked the Gatornationals. So grateful. RIP Keith.
It was an honor to serve with you and I am so appreciative for all your help to me in so many personal and professional ways! You conducted your law enforcement duties with integrity, valor and total benevolence… I know, we were on so many “Hot Calls” together. You worked so hard to promote the career ambitions of others, yet humbly resisted the promotional ambitions of others for yourself! Keith, you lived up to highest professional standards in a manner that your family and God can be proud!
A long time friend of the family. Best resource officer anyone could ever ask for! He changed many life’s with his unconditional love to help others. Truly a great man. Thanks for helping everyone that was fortunate to be graced with your presents!
Gone way too soon, prayers for your family
Known him most of my life. I remember when he first became an officer. I am so sorry for the loss of his life so suddenly…..prayers to the family…Love to you Tommy!!!
Thanks for your service to our community. You were one of the few supervisors that cared and took care of the deputies. I pray blessings and peace for your loved ones.
I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Faulk. He was a very faithful and dedicated man, married for 29 years! I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, “Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org
I went to EHS with Keith and he was always so kind. He was a leader and person of integrity. I appreciate all his contributions over these years to our community. Sending heartfelt prayers.
