Keith Roland Sjogren Obituary

Keith was born in the Bronx, NY on September 20th, 1956 to Harold and Kaija Sjogren. He is survived by his loving wife Sandy, who he adored and told her everyday how much he loved her. He was the middle son, survived by his older brother Roger and younger brother, Steven. . Keith leaves behind children Leigh Ann, Corey, Tim, Emily, and step children Kelsey and Kenny. He recently became the proud grandfather of his grand-daughter, Delilah. Finally, he leaves his beautiful Pomeranian, Foxy Mama. Keith was an avid martial artist, studying Chinese Woo Su Kung Fu. He was a student of Tai Chi. He was an avid back packer and mountain climber, climbing the Adirondacks, often going on excursions for weeks at a time. He loved photography, gardening, and traveling with his wife. They enjoyed many wonderful trips and recently took a cruise with his childhood friend Barry and family. Keith was a true lover of rock and roll, going to many, many concerts, including the final tour of Black Sabbath. He was slightly too young to attend Woodstock, however, returning from a Boy Scout camping trip, he always shared how he spent hours in traffic when passing the festival. He loved the sports and was a huge Giant fan and long term committed fan of the NY Mets. Keith was a kind and loving man, who had a heart of gold. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. He always referred to himself as "a simple man". He was extremely passionate about politics and was known to yell at the news on TV when he didn't agree with the politics of the day. He was a true patriot. He loved America. Although his number came up during the Vietnam Era and he went for his physical, the draft ended the next day. He never got rid of his draft card. Keith was employed over for 40 years in the bakery distribution business, first through the Teamsters, Local 802 and then going into his own distribution business. He worked nights for all those years. He and his wife used to have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner all the time so they could enjoy meals together. Keith had a wonderful spontaneous wit. He also was known for his famous quotes that he always used at appropriate times. Some of the favorites included "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining" and "I'm telling you what I'm telling you and I'm telling you that too." He was loved by all who knew him and will never be forgotten. Visitation Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home Inc.
