Keith passed away at home on Saturday April 25th, 2020 surrounded by love and his faithful family.

On June 24, 1943, Keith was born with a true Minnesotan spirit. He was an outdoor enthusiast and was always drawn to the water. Keith spent his summers listening to the loon calls along the shores of Gull Lake and spent his winters beside the sea on South Padre Island in Texas with his loving wife, Antje. Keith was an avid 500 player and loved all music, especially ABBA.

Keith was a light to all who knew him and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.  He is survived by his wife, Antje Olson - Heidecker; stepdaughter, Tina Anderson; grandchildren, Antje and Noah Anderson; and great-grandson, Navy Anderson.  He is also survived by Antje’s children, Karla (Shawn) O’Brien and their daughter, Shawna (Joe) Reed and grandchildren, Collin and Carter, Shelley Pinck and her two sons, Kathy Kohn and her two children, and Robin (Stephanie) Pinck.  

He was preceded in death by his first wife, Shirley Heidecker; daughter, Cindy; and his parents, Herbert Heidecker and Viola (Langton) Heidecker.

Following a private service at Nelson – Doran Funeral Home, Keith’s Life will be celebrated by family and friends at his beloved home overlooking the waters of Gull Lake.
