Keith Richard VonScio


Keith Richard VonScio, 57 of Beckley, WV, passed away tragically on April 23, 2019, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
Keith was born June 30th, 1961 in Washington, PA. He was the son of Gerald and Constance VonScio and Richard Young, all of Washington, PA. Keith was preceded in death by his grandparents Peggy "Baie" Pressler and William Hartley.
Those left on earth to cherish his memory include his parents Gerald and Constance VonScio and Richard Young; his wife Diana VonScio of Beckley, WV; his children Christopher and Nicholas VonScio of Beckley, WV; his step-children Brandi Repass and husband Casey and Nick Cook of Mullens, WV; step-grandchildren Dylan, Kaden, and Makena; brother Kevin VonScio and wife Marcy of Washington, PA; sister Jody Fonner and husband Jerry of NY; nephews and niece Drew and Kyle VonScio and Melanie Karalus.
Keith was a 1979 graduate of Trinity High School in Washington, PA. He attended Washington & Jefferson College and a 1983 graduate of West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He was formerly employed by AEP for 15 years and was currently an Account Executive for WVVA where he spent the last 19 years.
In Keith's leisure time he enjoyed basketball, softball, cornhole, riding his Harley, and going to the beach with his family and friends. Keith loved nothing more than watching his boys participate in sports, along with his favorite Mountaineers and Steelers.
Keith never met a stranger and won everyone over with his contagious smile. To say he will be missed by all is an understatement.

So sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies. I remember Keith as a football player for Logpile and Longonda, my husband was the Coach. His hair I remember was blonde, he also went to school with my son. May God give you the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Keith was a childhood friend of mine and for years we were inseparable but as life takes us in different directions we tend to drift apart. Connie & Jerry were like second parents to me. Although I haven't seen him in 30 years I have always remembered the good days we had. My deep felt condolence's to his family for which no one can know the grief they could be going through. Special prayers to the children. Love, Dana Lyons
