Keith Nolan, 62, of Wyoming, MN formerly of White Bear Lake, MN passed away on Saturday, November 5, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Shirley; and his brothers, Michael and Ken (Mary). He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Doris; children, Cory (Kaitlin) and Keri (Jake) Vetter; grandchildren, Buckley, Juniper, Sunny, Jackson, and Carter; siblings, Gary (Sue) and Colleen; sister-in-law, Mary; and nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.
Keith grew up in Milwaukee, WI and was an avid Badger, Brewers, Bucks and Packer fan. He went to the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee where he earned his BS degree in Business Administration and Information Technology. It is also where he met the love of his life Doris.
Keith and Doris were married and went on many adventures, living in CT and MD before moving closer to family and settling in White Bear Lake, MN. Here they raised the best children ever, Cory and Keri. Keith enjoyed being a coach for all of the kids' sports, a leader for Cory's boy scout troop and reffing youth soccer. Keith loved traveling with his family, hunting and going to Packer games.
As Cory and Keri got older, Keith loved watching both get married and welcomed their spouses Kaitlin and Jake into the family treating them as his own. He treasured becoming a papa and creating even more memories with his grandchildren.
Keith was a friend to all, making people laugh when he could and was a great listener which allowed him to make friends wherever he went. That held true in his longtime career at Target for 33 years, where he met wonderful people considering many like family.
"Tomorrow's not guaranteed. So you can plan for the future, but be sure you're living in the now."
