Keith Richard Dooley
July 22, 1952 - February 5, 2024

Keith R. Dooley 71 passed away on February 5 2024 after a brief illness at his home in Little River SC surrounded by family. Keith is survived by his wife Christina (Lyons) of 45 years daughter Meaghan (Greg) Williams son Craig grandson Peter Williams brother Rick (Joanne) Dooley niece Erin nephew Sean and his beloved Bernese Mountain dog Layla. He was preceded in death by father Richard B. Dooley mother Gloria (Milligan) Dooley and brother Scott J. Dooley. Keith graduated from Stepinac High School in 1970 and served in the Air Force before joining the Port Chester Police Department where he spent his career.  Keith served 25 years in law enforcement and was recognized frequently throughout his career for his contributions.  He was proud to serve his community and treated everyone he encountered with dignity. Upon his retirement he and Chris moved to NC and then SC to enjoy their hard earned relaxation. In his free time he enjoyed tinkering with his cars, watching NASCAR, listening to music and spending time with his family and friends. Keith was quick to smile slow to anger and always willing to help those around him.
