Keith A. Kleinfelt

Keith Alan Kleinfelt, age 65, passed away unexpectedly on June 30, 2021 in Winchester, Ky. He was affectionately known to many as Bully or Moose. He was born on January 9, 1956, in Charlotte, Mich., the son of William and Dolores (Crilly) Kleinfelt. He graduated from Olivet High School in 1974. During high school he worked at Airway Manufacturing in Olivet, approximately 1976 to 1980, at Carefree General Aluminum in Charlotte, approximately 1980 to 2007, at Kleinfelt Well Drilling in Charlotte, and retired from Goodwill Industries in 2018 in Charlotte.
He was an easy going, quiet man, but was always up for conversation if you stopped by. He was always willing to help you out with any task and let you do it your way, as long as the job got done. “Whatever works,” he would say. He was also a man who would always have your back in any situation. He was at his happiest working on anything mechanical and he could fix anything. It didn’t matter if it was a car, truck, motorcycle, lawn mower or household appliance, he could make it work. He loved to tinker with all his treasures in his garage and over the last few years he enjoyed traveling to Kentucky to help his daughter Kali on her horse farm.
He is survived by his wife, Kelli (Morgan) Kleinfelt of 30 years; children, Kali Kleinfelt (Justyn Harper) of Mt. Sterling, Ky., Liesl Hansen-Spence (Steve) of San Diego, Calif.; his grandchildren, Sean, Isaac and Phillip Spence; brother, Bryan Kleinfelt (Wanda); and sister, Jane Sobleskey (Steve); in-laws, Leo and Virgilene “Sue” Morgan; brother-in-law, Greg Morgan; sisters-in-law, Trina Clark and Vicki Mitchell; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother in 2019 and his father in 2021.
There will be a private family viewing and a public memorial service held on July 10 at 11 a.m. at Celebration Church, formerly Five Corners Church, Charlotte. A luncheon will follow the service. Memorial contributions can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project. The family is in the care of Pray Funeral Home in Charlotte.
