Born January 24, 1963, in Louisville, KY, he is the son of Richard Thomas Keith and Wanda Bryant Keith, both of Louisville. After graduating from Somerset Community College, Richie worked in computer science. He was currently working for Perspecta as a software tester. He formerly worked for Ft. Knox. Richie was a song leader for Christian Believers Church in Sellersburg, IN and Jesus Name Tabernacle. He enjoyed playing the guitar and drums. Richie was a board game aficionado, video game lover, yard sale hound, comic book fan, and Message believer. He was also a foodie that loved to travel. Most of all, Richie felt his main purpose in life was to take care and make sacrifices for his family. He loved his grandkids more than anything else.
