And God shall wipe all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. Rev. 21:4.

Mr. Keith Eugene Lackey, Sr., 58, of 1217 Wilmington Avenue, Statesville, was born in Iredell County on March 14, 1960 and was the son of the late William McKinley Lackey, Jr., and Bessie Estelle Adams Lackey. He departed this life on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at Maple Leaf Nursing Home, Statesville following an extended illness. He was preceded in death by a brother, Charles William “Boo” Lackey.

"Skeeter" as he was affectionately called, was a member of Gray’s Chapel United Church of Christ and he attended Statesville High School. He retired from the City of Statesville, Sanitation Department. He was a taxi driver for Adams Taxi and loved fishing, and playing basketball. Keith’s favorite football team was the Philadelphia Eagles, and “Carolina” was his favorite basketball team. Keith will truly be missed.

He leaves to cherish the memories of his life, his wife, Renee Dawn Holcomb Lackey; four children, Keith Eugene Lackey, Jr., and Cassie Stevenson, both of Statesville, Keith Deshawn Helmic, of West Virginia, and Jason (Rebecca) Feimster of Washington; two grandchildren, Ahmad Rashad Stevenson, Jr. and April McClelland; seven brothers, Roy Lee (Linda) Adams, Rickie Lackey, Edward McKinley (Deborah) Lackey, Larry Lackey, James Allen Lackey, Wesley Craig Lackey, and Garry Lackey, Sr., all of Statesville; three sisters, Brenda (Frank) Nesbit, Paulette Rankin, and Barbara Lackey, all of Statesville; an aunt, Louise (Leroy) Adams, of Youngstown, Ohio; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A celebration of Life Services will be conducted on Saturday, February 16, 2019, 12:00 p.m., at Christian Outreach of The Piedmont, Statesville. Members of the family will receive friends at the church from 11-12:00 p.m., but will assemble at the residence of Paulette Rankin, 404 Salisbury Road, Statesville at all other times.

God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. (Isaiah 41:10) Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!

I am so sorry for your loss. May you find a measure of comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your grief. Our Heavenly Father promises to be a source of peace to you during times of distress ( 2 Corinthians 1: 3,4). May your warm memories of Keith keep you until the day when you are reunited (John 5:28,29). As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
