He joined the United States Air Force in 1948. While in bootcamp he was converted and baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served in the Korean War. Afterwards, he returned home attending the U of U and received a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing.

After crashing a church dance in Salt Lake, he met his sweetheart, Sharon Walker, a farm girl from Clifton, Idaho. They were sealed in the Logan Temple on March 14, 1958. Keith and Sharon bought a home in Bountiful where they raised four adorable Daughters and one unique Son. Dad lived his life to love and serve his family. He loved family trips, camping, and driving around town with a diet coke in his hand. But his favorite activity was when the family gathered for Sunday dinners where he made his delicious roast, pork and chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy complimented by Sharon’s homemade rolls. The house was filled with laughter and craziness and that’s the way he loved it! He has friendships that have lasted a lifetime. He served in various callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving as a temple worker for many years. His favorite calling was being a home teacher and friend to those he served. He loved everyone, never, saying an unkind word about anyone. Keith left behind his 5 children: Leslie (Dean) Winslow, Shellene (Mark) Clark, Michael (Michelle) Thompson, Traci Thompson, and Nicole (Mark) Parker, 23 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his eternal companion, Sharon, his parents, his brother, baby sister and great granddaughter, Mirabel.
