Keith's Story

Text size

passed away peacefully on Friday, March 3, 2017, at age 76 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minnesota. He was born on July 23, 1940 in Spirit Lake, Iowa, to Forrest "Frosty" and Ina (Jones) Tow. He graduated from Jackson High School on a Friday in May 1959 and already had purchased his first business, Fairmont Flowers that he assumed ownership the following Monday. Keith's legacy is his attention to detail, gentle nature and his generous gifts to those he cared so much about. Keith was the majority principal owner of Tow Distributing in Mankato, MN. Keith was a man of few words but when he spoke it mattered and you always listened. He was a man held close in the hearts of so many because of his generous spirit. No one walked away from meeting Keith without knowing how special he was. Keith worked almost everyday of his adult life. His loved ones believed that he worked so hard because his dream was to watch the dreams of his loved ones come true. Keith enjoyed watching his nephews play football at the University of Minnesota, Sprint Car Racing, Horses, fixing up cars, and most of all helping others. His last project was Golden Gate Equestrian Center in Jordan, MN which is to be opened this summer and dedicated to his memory. He was survived by his sister, Marilyn; brother, Duane; Nephews, Nathan, Nicholas, and Jeffrey; and his very good friend, Brenda and her son Benji. A remembrance and Celebration of Keith's life will be held at Mount Olivet Church, 5025 Knox Ave S., Minneapolis MN on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 2:00 pm with a visitation starting at 1:00pm.
