Keith May, born in Midwest City, Oklahoma, on June 11, 1974, passed away on June 20, 2024. He leaves behind a legacy of passion, community involvement, and cherished relationships.

After graduating from Choctaw High School (home of the Yellow Jackets) in 1993, Keith pursued his interest in radio and TV broadcast journalism at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO). His career began as a news photo journalist at KFOR, where he honed his storytelling skills over the course of four years.

However, it was in real estate that Keith found his true calling. His love for buying and selling homes blossomed after he purchased his first house. As a realtor with Keller Williams, he built lasting connections within the industry over more than two decades. He was in the top 5% in sales volume among OKC area realtors and attended the Keller Williams National Convention over 20 years in a row.

In 2015, Keith met Marie, his life partner, and together they shared a passion for travel. They explored new places and made many lasting memories.

Keith’s lifelong passion for sports shaped his character and fueled his drive. Inspired by the iconic phrase “PLAY LIKE A CHAMPION,” which adorns the OU football stadium, Keith carried that spirit with him from childhood watching Barry Switzer and the Sooners, to his adult life and successful career as a businessman. He hung the phrase over thresholds in his home and office—a constant reminder that greatness lies within each of us. Whether cheering at OU football games or traveling across the United States for professional football and baseball matches, Keith reveled in the camaraderie and excitement of sports. His legacy lives on as someone who played life like a champion, leaving an indelible mark on those who knew him.

Last year, Keith achieved a remarkable goal: attending a Major League Baseball game at every current MLB stadium. From his first baseball game in junior high to the last one in Anaheim in September 2023, Keith’s love for sports knew no bounds.

Beyond sports, Keith actively contributed to his community. He was a dedicated member of the Rotary Club of Edmond, he served on the Executive Council for the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame, and was part of the selection committee for the Jim Thorpe award. His enthusiasm extended to golf, where he loved to sponsor the annual Sports Hall of Fame golf tournament with Keller Williams.

Keith’s creativity shone through his YouTube videos, showcasing his real estate business. He also had a soft spot for presidential libraries, visiting several throughout the years.

Keith was predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents and his mother, Rosetta Faye May. He is survived by his father, Lynn May, and stepmother, Lillian May. A sister, Marla Marcum, and her husband, Paul Marcum, along with niece Hannah Maple and nephew Silas Maple. Marie Constable, his life partner shares in the grief, as do many cherished aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, including his church family from the Memorial Rd. Church of Christ.

We will remember Keith as a passionate community member, a generous friend, and someone who made a lasting impact on those around him.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2024, 11:00 a.m., at Memorial Road Church of Christ, 2221 E. Memorial Rd., Edmond, Oklahoma 73013.
