Who's Keith Crabtree?
I have lived in this area for over sixty years. My wife VeNae and I have known each other since the 3rd grade, and have been married for 50 years. (I believe it will take) We have two daughters Charlene and Cindy that we are very proud of and three new grandchildren too.
I have dedicated my life to helping take care of our natural resources. The best way that I can make a difference, is to help the landowner understand what their land is capable of and to help them to make good land use decisions.
VeNae has been a surgical nurse at Auburn Sutter Faith Hospital for over 30 years. She decided she wanted to be a nurse at the age of eight. It is because of her that I'm able to pursue my dreams of being a educater and consultant for natural resources. We both agree that we are already successfully retired because we are doing what we love to do, and plan to continue until we are physically and mentally unable to. . . I'm doubtful of the mentality part ;)
