Keith was born in Detroit, Michigan on January 29, 1955.  His family relocated to the Detroit area suburb of Dearborn Heights in 1959.  Keith became an active member of that community and remained so until he relocated to the Tawas area in 2001.

Keith is the second of three generations of Moirs to graduate from Detroit Catholic Central High School (Class of '73).  Keith served as a police officer with the City of Dearborn Heights Police Department.  During that time he completed studies and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Criminal Justice from Madonna University.
