HAMILTON - Keith A. Baker, 19, passed away unexpectedly in his home on the 29th of May 2022, in Hamilton, MT.
Keith was born in Hamilton, MT on the 19th of May 2003, to Kathryn T. Kincheloe and Michael D. Baker. He attended the Hamilton School District. Keith “Crumble, KeithersAvers, Bubba, Sweet Keith, scratch and dent boy” had a gift for creating community around him wherever he was. Whether he was running around the South side of Hamilton as a young boy with his pack of buddies, swimming in the river, snowboarding up at LT, backpacking, camping, fishing and adventuring, at school or just hanging with friends and family he had an energy that drew people in. For those who had the privilege of having Keith in their lives he will be remembered forever for his smile and contagious giggle that you couldn’t help smile back at, spunk, resilience, endless kindness, patience, being loyal to a fault, his respectful way, his relentless enthusiasm for outdoor adventures, and for shamelessly being himself. He is dearly missed.
Keith is survived by his mother Kathryn Tracy Kincheloe and siblings Amazing Kincheloe of Hamilton, Kenny Turner of Hamilton, Seth Turner of Missoula, Wally Lister of Darby, Ashley Lister of Missoula, and Allysa Lister of Missoula. Keith is preceded in death by his father Michael David Baker and his grandmother Cynthia Vaughn Kincheloe.
A celebration of life is being planned for the fall and will be announced.
