Keith Schrimsher

December 5, 1955 — March 28, 2015

A memorial service will be held 10:00 am, Thursday, April 2, 2015 at Christ's Church on 2200 N Sycamore for Keith L. Schrimsher, 59, of Roswell, NM who died unexpectedly at his beloved ranch Saturday, March 28, 2015.
His wife Micki, and his sons Nathan and Lucas, survive him. His parents Ted Schrimsher and Vera King Schrimsher of Roswell, NM; his brother Jeff Schrimsher of Albuquerque, NM; and sister Devera Schrimsher Goss of Baton Rouge, LA, also survive him.

Keith married Micki Sue Coley in 1988 and was deeply devoted to her until death. He was a loving husband and father. It was well noticed by everyone around him that he adored his family and took a continually active role in the lives of his two boys, Nathan and Lucas. He was very proud of his boys and worked tirelessly to make himself available to support and encourage them.

Keith was a 1974 graduate of New Mexico Military Institute. In 1981, Keith earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from New Mexico State University. He was a respected farm and ranch real-estate broker and appraiser; He loved New Mexico and the wild and open rangelands. He could identify each blade of native grass and flora and enjoyed tendering a habitat for the wildlife on his Chaves County ranch. He loved raising cattle and called many of them by name. He was a knowledgeable historian of the Land of Enchantment's rich past and told intriguing stories of the people who settled the vast lands that he worked and studied.

Keith loved the mountains and was an outstanding, fluid downhill skier. When people noticed his skill, he was often approached and asked for advice on how to improve their techniques.

Keith was a believer and follower of Jesus Christ and a longtime member of Calvary Chapel of Roswell. His faith assures that he is no longer suffering the trials of this world, but is rejoicing in the arms of his Lord and Savior. His family is left to mourn, but we grieve with hearts full of hope, especially as resurrection Sunday approaches to remind us of the victory over death that Christ assured us by the Cross and resurrection. "Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 15:57.
Arrangements are under the personal care of LaGrone Funeral Chapel.
