Keith was born on April 6, 1953 to Ralph and Irene (Hamer) Jungjohann in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Koon on October 12, 1992 at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa.  Keith loved being in the outdoors, spending his time at the cabin in Wisconsin trout fishing, riding horses and motorcycles, flying down the zip line, and building the “best” bonfires.  He was known by many as the “animal whisperer”, befriending animals from pigeons to horses, even humans.

He is survived by his loving wife, Elizabeth; children: James (Larinda) Jungjohann, Jennifer (Tray) Campbell, Naia Tilghman, and Whitney Jungjohann; grandchildren: Jensyn, Jaelyn, Jade, Mia, and Roman; his brother Steve Jungjohann; and 5 nieces and nephews.
