Mr. Keith Wayne LeBlanc
September 19, 1957 - April 24, 2018
After a brief and devastating illness, Keith Wayne LeBlanc entered heaven early on the morning of April 24, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Andrea, his stepchildren, John, Amanda, and Danielle, as well as his mother, Nancy, and his brothers, Mark, Stephan, and Jeff.
Keith was born in Shreveport, Louisiana on September 19, 1957. He married Andrea on June 1, 2002. They have lived in Beech Island, South Carolina for 8 years. He worked at Richmond Supply Company in Augusta, Georgia for 18 years. Keith was a “give you the shirt off his back” kind of guy. He always went out of his way to help people, whether he knew them or not. He came into Andrea’s life when she needed him most. He cherished his family.
Keith drag raced motorcycles, and several cars, primarily at Carolina Dragway in Jackson, South Carolina, as well as other tracks in the southeast, for more than 20 years. It was more than a hobby, it was his passion. His motorcycle, the “Cajun Chainsaw massacre” was the product of many years of hard work. In recent years, he was working on a dragster which he was very excited about getting on the track.
Many felt and appreciated his generous nature and his willingness to share what he knew about the sport. He was a champion on and off the track-a humble one at that. He was kind, big-hearted, honest, and he loved his Lord Jesus Christ. He lived simply. Keith and Andrea enjoyed old movies, trivia, and caring for their dogs-Skipper, Sassafras, and Dr. Wilson. He was devoted to his friends and family and loved his community.
Keith was taken from us too soon. We will miss him terribly. But peace has come to this incredible man and he is sure to be drag racing in heaven and showing them how it’s done!
A celebration of his life will be held at:
302 Dragstrip Road, Aiken, SC
Saturday May 12th, 2-5pm

Dear Andrea, To you and your children I express more than my deepest sympathy. I never met Keith but looking at your beautiful pictures together he must have been a wonderful husband. I wish I could be there to give you some comfort but my heart and soul are with you at this time. I am so very sorry.......Love, MarleneMarlene bortolot - May 4 at 7:57 PM
Andrea, I know this is a difficult time for you and the family. Who would have guessed that Keith would be called away so soon. I know how much he loved you and the kids. You also came into his life at the right time. He praised you in his final days as being a great wife and a loving and attentive caretaker. Thank you so much for supporting and looking after my bud and making him as comfortable as possible as he moved closer to the Lord. He was my friend for over 20 years. I'll miss our phone conversations and occasional gaming out at the track. I'll cherish my memories of him as I move forward. He was one of a kind and I'm fortune to have met him.Frank Loney aka Frankenjohn as nick named by my friend Keith - April 30 at 4:32 PM
