August 21, 1956 - January 23, 2017

Keith Alan Phipps, born in Abilene, Texas on August 21, 1956, passed away on January 23, 2017 in Richardson, Texas.

Keith was a friend to all, both 2 legged and 4 legged.  His smile, kindness, caring heart, and story telling were his hallmarks.

Keith was a proud American and a true Texan.  He was honored to serve in the United States Navy.  After his time in the Navy was completed, Keith returned home to Texas and enjoyed all the state had to offer.  He loved hunting and fishing and riding his 4 wheeler and hanging out in the country, especially with his brother Barry at the hunting lease they visited often.

Keith was preceded in death by his mother Helen Adams, his father Garland Jordan, and his brother James Phipps. Keith is survived by his brother Barry McCook and his wife Lisa, his brother Rex Phipps, his sister Robin Phipps, and many nieces and nephews.

Keith will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him including his family, his many friends, his Walmart family, and his beloved dog Scarlett.

A service to celebrate his life will be held at 2:30 P.M., Saturday, January 28, 2017 at ARIA Memorial Chapel with Rev. Andy Wright officiating.

If desired, memorial contributions are requested to be made in Keith’s honor to Texas SPCA

Keith has always being such an awesome friend to me from the day I’ve met him 2 years ago. I’ve never met a more loving,caring,thoughtful more fun, lover of storytelling than my buddy as I’ve always called him. I really am going to miss this guy and his love for life and also his dog. Keith has been nothing short of a brother to me ,even though we had our differences cause we’re both stubborn haha he never stayed mad with me. I’m going to miss everytime a game would come on and he wanted to watch he’ll come bug me wherever i was so i can hop on ESPN so he can follow every second of the game while he explained to me the plays and passes since i wasn’t a sports fan like him. …….. sigh…. Keith your death really hit me,it hit me really hard and I’ve cried numerous amounts of times, you never left worked without saying “bye sweetheart “and that”s what’s killing me is that i didn’t get to say bye. But am not going to be selfish because you were so awesome on earth and God needed you and he said come on home. So i rejoice for you and i will truly miss you because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I’ll miss you buddy. Forever my friend. #GoEuless

Keith was such a wonderful man. He would always have a joke for me when I went to visit him at work. He was never short of words. I would try to have a joke for him whenever I saw him. I only got him on one joke that he couldn’t solve. Then I remember he tried to pull it on me a couple of months later. Of course I knew the answer and he just thought I was so smart. You will be truly miss Mr. Keith….Rest in Peace my friend.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
