Mr. Hibbett was born on September 12, 1962 in Lafayette, Louisiana to Hoffman and Kathleen (Gremillion) Hibbett. He graduated from Cathedral-Carmel High School and received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Louisiana State University. After he graduated, Keith was commissioned, as an Aviator in the United States Navy where he served for 10 years. In June of 1987, Keith Hibbett married Colleen Ann Klinker while fulfilling his duties at NAS Cubi Point, Philippines. In the Navy, Keith was a flight instructor on both T-39's and A-4's. He became a pilot for FedEx in 1996 and excelled immensely due to his determination and great work ethic. His love and passion was WWII history and Aircraft. He fulfilled this passion by becoming a Warbird pilot for Lone Star Flight Museum, Cavanaugh Flight Museum and the Commemorative Air Force. He was a God-fearing servant, husband and father and always did his best to do what was right. He will be missed by all who had the privilege of meeting him.

Keith is survived by his wife, Colleen Hibbett of Denton, his children, Danielle and her husband Preston Bakic of Saginaw, Blake Hibbett of Denton, Morgan and her husband Thomas Hussey of Grapevine; and two grandsons, Barron and Brantley Bakic of Saginaw.

In lieu of flowers, Mr. Hibbett would prefer if donations were made to the Wounded Warrior foundation, as that was his passion while he was with us.
