David Keith Hale, 67, of Corning died at 1:20 AM, Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at The Ohio State University Ross Heart Hospital in Columbus following an extended illness.

Born on July 21, 1951, the eldest son of the late Charles "Jack" Hale and Fairy M. (Frisk) Hale of Riverbank California, Keith spent his younger years moving back and forth between Ohio and California.
