Keith C. Urbach, age 72 of Westfield joined the Lord to go on his next adventure on Feb. 20, 2012. Keith was born on March 2, 1939 in Rockford, Illinois. He was the son of Harriett and Elmer Urbach who preceded him in death.
Keith served in the U.S. military and then became an electrician and a proud member of Local 159 in Madison. He spent many hours hunting and fishing, but his greatest moments were time spent with his family and friends. He also enjoyed traveling, especially to the southwest.
