Keith was preceded in death by his wife Denise; his parents Virgil and Norma Jean Branham; brother Dwayne Branham and sister-in-law Mary Branham; and brother-in-law Ronnie Powers.

He is survived by his partner, Cathy Lilly who has stood by him through it all; daughters, Candice (Brandon) Branham and Hope (Bart) Phelps; sons, Justin Branham, Dustin Jones, and Derek Jones; grandkids, Gavin, Ian and Lilee Branham, Megan Browning, Kaden Phelps, Autumn Phelps, Eliana Jones, Tucker Jones, Liam Jones, and Raegan Boggs; sisters, Sharon Powers, Sally (Doug) Price and Debbie (Tom) Price; and a host of family and friends who will cherish his memory.
