Keith A. Carbaugh

Waynesboro, 53

Keith A. Carbaugh, 53, Waynesboro, died unexpectedly Friday, November 2, 2018, at his home.

Born November 13, 1964, in Chambersburg, he was a son of Paul H. Carbaugh and the late Wilma J. Lehman Martin.

He was a 1982 graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School and served honorably in the U.S. Army. He owned and operated KDawg Services in Waynesboro and was employed as general manager at Zody’s Moving and Storage.

He was an active firefighter and driver with Waynesboro Fire Department for many years and was active volunteering his time with Mont Alto Fire Co., especially the annual toy drive.

He was a member of the Owls Club and Fraternal Order of Eagles, both in Waynesboro; Chambersburg Club; the 29 Football Club; and Franklin County Community Animal Response Team. An animal lover and advocate, he volunteered with countless animal rescue groups where he drove rescued animals up and down the East Coast. He had a heart of gold and was a friend to all. A quiet man, he will lovingly be remembered for his smile, which would light up a room.

He is survived by his father and stepmother, Paul H. and Karen Carbaugh, Warfordsburg; four siblings: Dena J. Strait and husband Nick, Shippensburg; Troy L. Carbaugh and wife Donna; Heidi J. Green and husband Dustin; and Denise J. Martin, all of Chambersburg; his maternal grandfather, Richard Lehman, Orrstown; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his mother, Wilma, he was preceded in death by his stepfather, Larry L. Martin; two sisters: Darla J. Martin and Kandi S. Carbaugh; his paternal grandparents: Howard and Lovetta Carbaugh; his maternal grandmother, Betty Lehman; and his maternal step-grandmother, Sarah J. Martin.

Friends are invited to a gathering to celebrate Keith’s life Sunday, November 11, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Mont Alto Fire Co., 517 South Main Street, Mont Alto, Pa. The family asks that you bring stories to share and celebrate Keith’s amazing life. Light refreshments will be served.
