Keith Patrick Peerson, 32, went to be with our Lord on Monday, Feb. 14, 2011. He was born on Sept. 7, 1978 in Stockton. He passed in his sleep at his residence in Citrus Heights, Cal.

Keith was diagnosed at a young age with Prader-Willi Syndrome. And where some people allow their challenges to rule their life, nothing in Keith’s life would point to anything but a young man living his life to his fullness. Where some people dwell on the “can’t do’s”, Keith was someone who wanted to dwell on the “can do’s and want to’s.”

Keith enjoyed woodworking and working with his hands. He quite often made items for friends and family. And like most young men he was sports-minded. He was an outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing. He also enjoyed playing video games and working on the computer as so many people do. Keith worked at Pride Industries in Roseville, Cal.

He was an active member of Prader-Willi Syndrome CA Foundation. Keith served as the president of People First – Roseville Chapter. He attended Aim Higher Day Program where he participated in art, painting, singing, plays and so much more. As a youth, Keith was active in Sequoia Heights Baptist Church youth group and volunteered his time working with the A.V. team in Manteca.

Keith is survived by his parents Clifford and Tina Peerson, as well as his sister Deanne and brother-in-law Caelen Klopson. Keith leaves behind his nephews Wade Riffle and Gavin Klopson and niece Mackenzie Klopson, all residing in Lincoln. He also leaves behind his grandparents Norval and Lorraine Peerson of Holdenville, OK and many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.

Donations can be made to Prader-Willi CA Foundation, 514 N. Prospect Ave., Ste. 110-Lower Level, Redondo Beach, CA 90277.

Memorial service will be held on Friday, March 11, at 2 p.m. at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church, Manteca.
