Keith Douglas Decker, 64, of Kalispell, born on Nov. 5, 1954, passed away with family by his side on Feb. 19, 2019.
Born and raised in the Flathead Valley, Keith loved hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, camping with friends and family and old cars. He was always ready to lend a hand and willing to give the shirt off his back to those who needed it. He enjoyed building houses with his dad, Jack, and was an amazing carpenter. He was known to be able to fix things that no one else could. He joined the Army National Guard in 1975 and was honorably discharged 10 years later. He went to work for the Montana Highway Department in 1980 and retired 30 years later. He also volunteered with the Evergreen Fire Department. He was blessed with many friends and family who loved him very much and will miss him dearly.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Roberta and Jack Decker, several aunts and uncles, one cousin and numerous friends.
He is survived by his wife Paula, daughter Heather (Lincoln) Seals of Kalispell, his son Douglas Decker of Great Falls, his sister Karen (Robert) Rodriguez of Phoenix; and seven grandchildren, Trevor, Jackson, Shayla, Cameron, Hayley, Wyatt and Kylee; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held this summer at a later date to be determined.
