Dennis “Keith” Vancil - dedicated husband, father of four, and friend to many - left this earthly life on March 11, 2023 at the age of 71 after a tenacious battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was born to Iris Marietta Goodman and Sidney Keith Vancil in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
Keith and his wife, Sheila, made their home together in Coldwater, MS raising their children and establishing his business, S&K Enterprises, which became a reliable fixture in the community; loved by his many customers and colleagues.
Keith was known for his dedication to work, keen sense of family, and love of Oliver tractors - often finding a way to insert a visit to tractor show on family vacations. Keith was a humble servant of his community; always finding ways to lend a hand and share his wealth of knowledge.
