Keith Baird, born May 1st, 1950, was the third of eleven children from the union of Desmond & Sybil Baird of Buxton.
As a child, he attended Buxton Congregational School. He was always smart and knew how to pull a good trick. He had once lost his Reading Book, but later managed to retrieve just the cover. During his homework time, his mother asked him to do reading. Unknown to her, he pretended to read from the blank inside, until very soon afterwards, his memory began to fail and he made mistakes. His mother then decided to check what he was reading, only to discover that there were no pages inside. Of course, what followed is no surprise.
Keith went on to attend the Government Technical Institute in Georgetown, from where he graduated with the City & Guilds Certificate (GTI). Soon after graduating from the institute, he went to work as a mechanic for the Ministry of Works & Hydraulics, first at the Kingston Workshop and later, at the Ruimveldt Rebuild Workshop. He was an outstanding worker. He paid attention to detail, and was only satisfied with the best outcomes. These qualities were recognized, and very soon he was promoted to Junior Supervisor. In 1975, he was selected from among his peers to undergo further training in Germany. Following his return to Guyana, he continued to excel at his job.
In 1977, Keith tied the knot with Desiree Abrahams. He fathered nine children, three of whom predeceased him; they were Oswyn, Oslyn and Rhonda. He is survived Keith, Jr., Kimberly, Kathleen, Kristina, Travis and Kevin.
Keith left Guyana in 1979 and took up residence in the United States. Shortly after his arrival there, he secured employment with New York City Transit Authority. He rose through the ranks, becoming a member of senior management. He retired from work in 2010.
He was unable to enjoy much of his retirement years as he soon became very ill. This condition continued to plague him until he was called home by God on March 14, 2013 to reunite with his loving parents and three of his beloved children. He was laid to rest at St. Michaels Cemetery, East Elmhurst, in Queens County, New York, USA.
In addition to his wife, Desiree and six surviving children, Keith leaves to mourn his loss his four grandchildren: Kayla, Sammy, jr., Zaire and Xavier.
He is also survived by six siblings: Sydney, Audrey, Richard, Noelline, Myrna, Desiree, Claude, and Desmond, Jr.
