    Keith has been one of my best and closest friends since we first worked in the LRPD Detective Office in 1976. He was a Groomsman in my wedding in 1981. His death has left a void that can never be filled. “You’ve run the race and finished the course “. I’ll see you on the other side Brother.

    Keith Rounsavall was a Police Officer’s Police Officer.
    He was very good at it.
    I learned very much from him that I still draw upon thirty-three years later.
    If you were a criminal, he’s the last one you wanted on your case.
    I became friends with him in 1990, and remained a friend up until he passed.
    I will miss having him to call upon for help or advice.
