Keith R. Lehmann, 63, passed away of complications at Meriter Hospital in Madison on Saturday, June 8, 2013. He was born May 2, 1950, in Hartford, the son of Norbert I. and Priscilla M. (nee Radloff) Lehmann of Hustisford, Wisconsin.
Keith graduated from Hustisford High School in 1968 and attended Whitewater University. He eventually settled in Madison, a city he loved dearly.

Keith worked in the shipping department in the UW system for some years and also at other companies in a variety of capacities. However, the job Keith loved the most was his volunteer work at United Way in Madison. He spent almost 15 years at the agency helping them to change people’s lives and strengthen the community.

One great pleasure in Keith’s life was a weekly family Sheepshead card game in which much laughter and camaraderie was enjoyed. Another of his pleasures was when family gatherings turned to playing other games . . . Keith’s answers for “Loaded Questions” were renowned to be the most humorous of all! Keith’s family and friends recognized him as a gentle soul, an inspiration to all on how to live a life filled with kindness.

Keith is survived by his sisters Faye (Bob) Schmidt of Milwaukee and Joyce (Tom) Bartelt of Fond du Lac, and brother Norbert A. (Jill) Lehmann of Eau Claire, his paternal uncle, Walter E. Lehmann, maternal aunts Verne (Vilas) Hundt, Phyllis (Marvin) Feller, Shirley Zasada, Veleda (Jim) Radloff, Gayle (Wayne) Stevenson, and uncle, Butch (Phyl) Radloff. Also survived by nieces/nephews, great nieces/nephews, as well as other relatives and good friends.

Keith was preceded in death by his parents, Norbert I. and Priscilla M. Lehmann and other aunts & uncles.
