Keith Brinson Faglier Junior, retired Air Force Master Sergeant of 23 years, went into the arms of the Lord on October 27th 2021. He passed away in the comforts of his home in Peyton Colorado surrounded by his family’s love.
Keith, lovingly known as “Kip”, was born to Keith Brinson Faglier Senior and Beverley Yates on August 6th 1968 in Buford, Georgia and moved to Marietta, Georgia in his youth. He graduated from Marietta High School in 1986, and honorably served 23 years in the United States Air Force before retiring at the rank of Master Sergeant in 2015.
While in service Keith was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal with 1 Oak Leaf Cluster, the Air Force Commendation Medal with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters, the Air Force Achievement Medal with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters, the Joint Meritorious Unit Award with 1 Oak Leaf Cluster, the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with 6 Oak Leaf Clusters, and the Air Force Organizational Excellence Award with 1 Oak Leaf Cluster. Keith served primarily in Greenland, California, and finally Colorado, where he found a permanent home with his wife, Lisbeth Faglier, and their three dogs.
Keith is the loving father of three children, Brittany and Brandi born to Tracy Doeringer, and Brinson. He has been a loving found-father to Pamela and Stacy in his marriage to Lisbeth. All of whom he is survived by. He is also survived by his parents, siblings: Stephanie, Derek, Natalie, and granddaughter Charlotte.
Keith was a man who measured himself in the eyes of his family. He was always quick to make a stranger a friend and a friend as good as family. His heart and home were always open, and he would forever find a way to help someone in need. Throughout his life Keith was known for his dedication to learning, innovative mind, energy, enthusiasm for adventure, and an infectious sense of humor. He was a mentor to all who needed one and offered sound advice to help them reach their goals. Every time he taught or explained something, you could count on Keith to pause and thoughtfully ask “Does that make sense?”. Keith fully enjoyed the holidays each year spent with his family at home. He found joy in nature while golfing, fishing, and riding his motorcycle, as well as in his love for his children, wife, and pets.
He enjoyed filling his free time with music, movies, and football as a devoted Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, and took any opportunity to make memories out of monotony. Keith never said no to a new adventure and has left a lasting mark in the memories and hearts of those who know and love him.
A funeral mass and vigil will be held for Keith at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church 6455 Brook Park Dr. Colorado Springs, CO. on Tuesday, November 9th at 4pm and he will be laid for his final rest on Wednesday, November 10th at 10am in Pikes Peak National Cemetery.
