Obituary

Billy Gene Keith, 80, of Roy, Utah, passed away peacefully on August 13, 2018, and will be dearly missed.

Bill was born on September 27, 1937 in Terre Haute, Indiana to Thelma and Herschel Keith, and is the oldest of 4 children. He graduated from Weber High School and attended the University of Maryland & Weber State College. He married his sweetheart, Julia Rae Peterson (Judi) on April 29, 1960, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. After living in Washington D.C, and then Ogden Utah, they moved to Roy in 1964 and have lived there for 54 years. Bill and Judi were blessed with four children: Dan, Diane, Susanne and Shannon.

He served his country as a Marine for 8 years and then worked on Hill Air Force Base as an Engineering Technician Supervisor. Upon finding his dream job as a Bridge Engineer, he lived out his passion until he retired from the U.S. Forest Service after 40 years of service. His family washis great love and he enjoyed camping with them, fishing, hunting, mountain man rendezvous, scouting, and his beloved family history.

He was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved serving in various callings throughout the years. He has passed on his legacy of a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and the urgency he felt to bridge our family’s heritage--past to present.
