Keith passed away September 3, 2010 in a tragic accident while on a hunting trip.
I am shocked and saddened to hear the news. Keith was a kind, funny and just a really good person.

Jimmy Fox, pastor of Avenue Baptist Church in Hereford, officiating. Burial will be in Llano Cemetery by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
Keith was born in Amarillo in 1970 and graduated from Amarillo High School in 1989, where he lettered in football and track. He moved on to Texas Tech University and was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity. He graduated in 1993 with a BBA degree in Marketing.
He moved to Dallas and was currently residing there. Keith was employed with Staples as an account executive.
Keith was so loved by many and will be missed more than words can say. He never met a stranger and his smile would light up any room. Keith had many interests especially a passion for the outdoors.
He spent much time hunting, fishing, water skiing, snow skiing and golfing. He was loyal and always had such a genuine concern for others. He cherished spending time with his family and friends.
Keith had a special bond and love for Averie, Audrie and Aiden. He will be missed but we are assured his eternal years will be in heaven.

Man dies in Oldham County ATV accident
A 39-year-old Dallas man died in a hunting accident Friday evening in Oldham County.
Warren Keith Horner died about 5:40 p.m. when the two-seat all-terrain vehicle he was driving overtured on private land about 5 miles west of Boys Ranch, Oldham County Sheriff David Medlin said.
Horner was driving the Polaris Ranger with a passenger sitting beside him. Medlin said Horner saw some doves and made a sharp turn toward them when the vehicle overturned.
Neither person was wearing a seat belt and both were thrown from the vehicle, Medlin said. The Ranger rolled over Horner, killing him. His passenger was uninjured in the incident, Medlin said.
