Keith A. Furrow, age 61, of Gulf Breeze, was called home on September 18, 2021. He was born July 22, 1960, in Detroit, MI, to the late Julius Herdon Sr. and Delores Marshall. Keith was an esteemed Real Estate Broker, Home Builder, and Entrepreneur.
While devotion to family was his primary love throughout his life, he also enjoyed reading, bicycling, golf, camping, the beach, Dallas Cowboys football, and a highly successful career. Further, Keith was well known as a teacher, mentor, and life coach. He had a profound faith in Jesus and spent most of his life applying the mantra “Let go, Let God.”
He was the sole proprietor of Keith Furrow and Associates brokerage and held the following titles: CRS, PMN, CDPE, CSP, IMSD, and AHWD. Keith was honored to be the first male president of the Women’s Council of Realtors and the 2020 Member of the Year. His many committees included governmental affairs, multiple listing services, professional development, RPAC, nominating, budget, and financing. In addition, Keith was a seven-time member on the Board of Directors for the Pensacola Association of Realtors and the 2013 PAR recipient of the Golden R. Award.
