Keith Studt, 60, former chief at Winter Park Fire Department

Keith Studt

WILMINGTON — Keith Studt, 60, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior Monday, July 5, 2021. He was born March 27, 1961, in Kingston, New York, the youngest son of Owen and Leah Studt.

His family moved to Durham, N.C. while he was in high school where he started working in a grading company and volunteering in the local fire departments.

Working for Case Equipment Company brought him to Wilmington in 1986. He also started volunteering for the Winter Park Fire Department, where he served as chief from 1996 to 2000. He recently retired from working at the New Hanover County Vector Control after 23 years.

Keith’s life was cut short, but he leaves a legacy of God’s love, the importance of family and the goodness of helping others. His friendship was a priceless gift and his presence in this community will be greatly missed.
