Remembering Keith Moon
Recently, Keith Moon, long-time winter resident of Valle Del Oro passed away.
You probably remember seeing Keith play tennis or softball at Valle Del Oro. These were sports that he loved throughout his life and especially loved playing in his retirement years.
He was recently remembered at a memorial at the Valle Del Oro softball field where balloons were sent heavenward in his honor and many friends and family gathered to reminisce about the impact he had on others.

He is survived by two daughters and a granddaughter who live in Montana, a sister who lives in Nevada, another sister who lives in Mesa, Arizona, and many nieces and nephews who miss him dearly. On his wishes, his ashes will be spread over a softball field in Bozeman, Montana this coming Spring or Summer.
Keith grew up in a military family (his father was an Air Force pilot) and lived in many countries, including Luxembourg, France, Germany, and Spain (where he graduated from High School and played throughout Europe on the tennis team). He attended Westminster College in Missouri with a degree in Psychology, which helped land him a job with NASA undergoing isolation studies for space exploration.

He then worked at Yellowstone National Park where he met and married his wife, Cathy. Two daughters quickly followed. He spent his remaining work years working as a manager for a guardrail company in Montana. Although has been divorced awhile, he cherished his daughters and his now ten year old granddaughter and often went fishing, camping, and hiking with them.
It was very evident to us (his sisters and current girlfriend) at his recent memorial, that Keith touched many lives. It was heart-warming to see so many of his friends and fellow athletes come out to honor and toast him with a Bud Light (his favorite beer).
We also appreciate the touching tribute given by Bob Towers who is one of many of Keith's close friends.
One thing we all agree on - Keith was the kindest man we knew.
