The family of Keith Sembach, Jr. of Lima, Ohio is saddened to announce his passing on Wednesday April 13th, 2022 at 8:12 pm at the age of 36 years old. Keith was surrounded by his family in his home while he lost a valiant battle with a rare aggressive cancer. Keith was born on March 12, 1986 in San Diego, California and was blessed with having three wonderful families.
Keith is survived by his wife, Michelle Peters, her son, Liam Arnold, and his daughter, Skylinia Sayler. He is survived by his father, Keith (Lisa) Sembach, Sr., his mother, Donna (Moses) Winslow, and his father, Joseph (Kimberly) Winslow. Preceding him in death was his mothers Melody Pittman and Jamie (Daniel) Snyder. Keith is survived by his sisters Charmei (Chad) Greynolds, Ashley Morrison, Amanda (James) Harber, Rachel (Mickel) Wise, Melissa Chargualaf, Roxanne (Jeremy) Chargualaf-Hester, Gabrielle Fowler and his brothers Joseph Winslow II, Joshua (Erica) Kellison, Blaine Sembach, and Johnathon Wisniewski. Keith was also an uncle to 14 nephews and 8 nieces.
Keith grew up in a small town with his adopted parents, Keith Sr. and Melody, and his sister and best friend, Charmei. Manton, Michigan is where Keith discovered his talents and love for basketball and track.. Eventually he ended up in Bellefontaine, Ohio and found his way to the Winslow’s household where Donna and Joseph welcomed Keith into their home and he became their son and a part of their family. Keith graduated from Bellefontaine High School in 2005. In 2015, Keith was ecstatic when he found his biological mother and found out he had three beautiful sisters. He enjoyed having three families because each one molded him into the person he was today.
Keith’s ultimate passion was music. When Keith was playing guitar and singing, you could see the happiness in his eyes. While working at Texas Roadhouse, he got the nickname “Lionel” because Keith was always in the back singing while he was cooking. When he wasn’t singing, you could also find him yelling at the XBOX while playing a game. Keith was a loyal fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Keith also believed tacos should be eaten every night for dinner and enjoyed a shot of Fireball every once in a while..
If you knew Keith, you knew that he had a heart of gold. He would always be there for everyone during their battles while fighting his own battles. He was beloved by everyone who ever met him. No matter the circumstances, you’d always leave with a story of something funny/crazy Keith did while you were with him.. The world is a lesser place without him. He loved fiercely and deeply and we take comfort in knowing that Keith is now at peace surrounded by light.
To honor Keith, a “Celebration of Life” will be held on Saturday April 23rd, 2022 at Mulligans, 702 W. North St., Lima, OH, 45801. The doors will open at noon and the ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. and the celebration will begin at 2:30 p.m.. Flowers, gifts and memorial donations can be addressed to the Sembach Family and sent to 218 N. Shawnee St, Lima, OH, 45804. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.chiles-lamanfh.com.
