Faces of Pee Dee

“Mr. Keith” is well known at McLeod Health and Fitness Center.

His easy smile and positive attitude are an inspiration to all who know him. If the doors are open at the center, he is there working out.

In 1987 a 12-foot fall to a concrete floor left him paralyzed from about mid-chest down. It doesn’t slow him down. During his recovery he was so positive and happy, the medical staff was worried he wasn’t accepting the seriousness of his injury. They called in a psychologist to talk with Keith.

Keith explained, “Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before.” He went on to counsel other patients. He has read the Bible in its entirety several times. John 14:1-6 is his favorite passage. Keith is quick to say that he serves an amazing God.
