|About the Mission:||The family of Keith K. Repscher has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in his military honors funeral services. Keith, 63, of State Route 30, Esperance, passed away on Friday May 29th at his home.
Born in Schenectady, NY, Keith was educated in Old Saybrook, CT, and later enlisted in the US Army serving as a diesel generator operator/mechanic during the Vietnam War era. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Specialist 4th Class (E-4) in 1977.
Keith began a long career as a Union Carpenter, primarily as a Superintendent with A.O.W. in Albany until his retirement at age 55. Keith bowled in leagues at the former Cobleskill Lanes, played in the Schoharie County Softball League (1984 NYS Champions), and held membership in the American Legion and B.A.S.S. He also enjoyed hunting, and was proud of his patent-pending ‘Bow-Lok’, a display rack for Crossbow and Compound bows.
