Keith R. Benedett, age 69, of Baxter, died on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at his home surrounded by family.

Keith was born in Winona on December 15, 1951 to Raymond and Elizabeth (Oevering) Benedett. He graduated from Winona State University, where he met his wife of 49 years, Cindy Von Bargen. Keith found joy in his work as a teacher, business owner and mental health specialist. He was a dedicated family man who loved to spend time with his grandkids, fish, camp and be outdoors. Keith will always be remembered for the ever present smile on his face, his ease of striking up conversation with anybody, and his selflessness.

Keith is survived by his wife, Cindy; two children, Nick (Heather) Benedett and Megan (Kurt) Bistodeau; 4 grandchildren, Mya and Keegan Benedett and Amelia and Aviana Bistodeau; and his mother, Elizabeth Benedett. He is preceded in death by his father, Raymond Benedett.
