Condolences for Keith Patrick Fullenkamp

Jerry Kanney posted on 10/2/13

Having served as one of Keith's teachers in junior high at St. Henry Middle School, it is with great sadness that write this condolence. Keith was one of those students that you never forget because he was such a nice person, and he was always eager to talk about fishing and sports. I am so thankful that he got to live his dream, even if it was only a short time, and just as thankful that my life path crossed with his. My deepest sympathies go out to all of his family and friends. Jerry Kanney

Dear Family of Keith Fullenkamp, Sincere sympathy and consolation and peace from our God is my prayer for all of you in your loss of Keith. When I saw the photo I knew immediately he was in the Wermert Family. I think he looks like his Grandfather John Wermert (my Uncle). I have placed Keith's name on our Prayer Board here at Salem Heights, the Central House of the Sisters of the Precious Blood. Be assured of my prayer for all of you. Love, Your cousin, Sister Noreen Jutte, CPPS Dayton, Ohio

I had the pleasure of meeting Keith on several occasions. He and my brother, Rich, were close friends, and worked together through DWR. Keith and his wife, Tanna, were always so genuinely nice and personable. I was very sad to hear of Keith's passing. The passion he had for his job was well known throughout the hunting and LEO community. Rich has a lot of stories about Keith, and he seemed like such a great person who was dedicated to his job and his family. My heart is hurting for your family right now, and I am so deeply sorry for your tragic loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. -Katie Hansen

We had a great pleasure of meeting Keith, and Tanna during his sister's, Jill Gross, wedding. He was such a genuine individual and made a lasting impression. Throughout the years, we always looked forward to hearing about Keith's outdoor adventures. We were always envious of his job where he was paid to do what he loved so much. While we may not see him physically, he will live through the stories of his adventures. Our hearts hurt, there are no words that can express our sadness/sorrow for all those that he touched. His family and friends are in our hearts, minds and prayers.
