Obituary

Melvin Eddie Keyes passed away on March 30, 2018 at the age of 74. Born July 5, 1943 in Portland, Oregon, Melvin’s family moved to Jerome, Idaho where he was raised. Melvin married Carol Davis they later divorced. He then married Sandra Ferguson and was also later divorced. He married Margaret Harrington.

Melvin served as a Sea Bee in the Vietnam War and worked at Circle A Construction for 48 years. He loved activities such as golfing, fishing, camping, and weekend trips to Wendover.

Mel was a man of his word, and always believed that everyone deserved a second chance. With his time at Circle A Construction, he was able to give so many people a job and help them. In his young years he loved rodeo, and Mel enjoyed a “Full Moon” and sunsets. He was a firm believer of being on time, if you knew Mel you knew what being on time meant, 15 minutes early.

Melvin is survived by his wife, Margaret and daughters; Trace Keyes, Brandi (Donnie) Warren, and April Tucker. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren, 6 great- grandchildren, and brothers; Jim (Shannon) and Henry (Dee) Keyes. He is preceded in death by his Mother (Letha) and Father (Custer), sister Colleen, and brother Dale.

With the sunset I close my eyes and breathe in. I hear you there whispering to me from within. As I walk this new path I wonder what will I do, who will remind me, to set my clocks back, who? What will happen on that third day the one when we know it is time to call and say “Hey”. So C-10, RC, Lil Hitler, you will be missed, but our lives have been blessed 8-11.
