Keith Michael Farmer, 32 of Hendersonville, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on June 9, 2022. He was born on July 9, 1989 in Karlsruhe, Germany to Jeffrey and Deanne Farmer. He was a class of 2007 Hendersonville High School graduate.
He was a loving husband, devoted father, dedicated brother and son, and the type of friend that would literally give you the shirt off his back. He most enjoyed making memories with his family. Especially visiting the mountains of Gatlinburg and the beaches of Florida.
His second biggest love was sports. His favorite teams included Ohio State (O-H), Seattle Seahawks, and the Nashville Predators. At any given moment you would find him checking sports statistics. When he wasn’t checking sports statistics, he was playing Xbox with his many Xbox groups to include MINT, King of Kings Madden League, and several others. If you didn’t see him with a Red Bull in his hand, then he was enjoying a coffee. Through all of life, he had a passion and love for music of all kinds. Sometimes, when he was listening his swinging hips would come out.
He had officially found his career with Verizon (Hendo) and loved assisting each and every customer that came through those doors. He truly enjoyed his time with the coworkers there.
Keith had a smile that lit up any room he walked into and never knew a stranger. His laugh, kind heart, and enormous personality were contagious. He gave hugs like no one else. Those bear hugs were THE BEST! He lived life to the fullest and appreciated each moment. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten by all who loved him.
He fought hard in his battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) with his wife, Mariah and family by his side every step of the way. We are so very saddened this was his ending, but so thankful he is no longer in pain.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents James and Yvette Guthrie and uncle-Randy. Keith leaves to cherish his memory and continue his legacy, wife-Mariah, sons-Jackson, Blaine, and Matthew, daughter-Maddie, paternal grandmother-Rose Marie Shape, father-Jeffrey, mother-Deanne, father-in-law-Anthony, mother-in-law-Angela, his closest aunt-Jacqui (Tony), cousins-Paul (Amber) and Alisha, siblings-Josh (Sharon), Brandon, Nathan (Skyla), niece-Grace, closest friends-Steve (Nicole), Benjamin (Elizabeth), Lisa, and Larry. He is also survived by many special nieces and nephews, his Xbox family, and a very large extended family.
