Keith Wayne "KeyWayne" Christensen, age 59 of Brenham, passed away Sunday, July 31, 2022.

KeyWayne was born February 11, 1963 in El Campo and was the sixth of six boys to parents Clayton and Tommie (Milton) Christensen. He attended El Campo schools and was a 1981 graduate of El Campo High School and attended Wharton County Junior College.

After attending junior college, KeyWayne began his journey into making a living and trying different occupations. In the 1980's, he began working at installing cable in apartments and buildings across the Southeastern United States. He then decided to get back to Texas and worked in the oilfield tool business in Central and South Texas. Always seeking adventure, he then became involved in installing solar panels on homes and businesses in Central Texas. KeyWayne then discovered a liking for landscaping and excelled in partnering with a friend in the Austin. After moving to Brenham, he worked in the meat market and as a salesman in the furniture business. He then partnered with his close friend and opened a nursery-garden and yard ornament business which he really enjoyed. From taking care of the plants to visiting with the customers, KeyWayne was in his element.

From an early age everyone that came in contact with KeyWayne found out quickly that he was a very kind and funny person. He was quick witted and loved telling stories and making people smile and laugh. He had the ability to walk in a room of strangers and in a matter of minutes he knew everyone and he had them smiling. He truly loved people.
