Keith A. Lantz, 55, of Ingleside, died Sunday, February 10, 2019, at Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital. He was born September 30, 1963, in Libertyville, to Jack and Eva (nee Schoen) Lantz. He married Lisa Noesen October 14, 1995, in Buffalo Grove.
Keith was a veteran of the Marines Corps, who went on to have an 18-year career as a heavy-equipment mechanic at West Side Tractor Sales in Wauconda. He was a member of Automobile Mechanics’ Local #701. Keith adored and had an amazing passion for animals—especially cats and dogs. He was known to find the humor in any situation by trying to make people laugh and for his love of WWII history books. But, above all, he loved to spend time with his family—especially his children.
Survivors include his wife, Lisa; children, Madeleine, Abigail, and Thomas Lantz; father, Jack; siblings, Michael (Taryn) Lantz and Dawn (Doug) Rhoades; niece and nephew, Paige and Cullen (Danielle) Lantz; father- and mother-in-law, Thomas and Carol Noesen; and brother-in-law, Scott Noesen.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Eva.
