Keith R Bailey
1923 ~ 2016

Keith R. Bailey, a longtime resident of the Heyburn/Paul area passed away Wednesday, February 24, 2016 in Alpine, Utah.

Keith was born in Rupert, Idaho in 1923,the son of Parley Hawkins Bailey and Mary Jane Roderick. He lived on the same farm from his birth until he was 90 years of age. He then sold the remainder of his farm and moved to Alpine, Utah. Keith graduated from Heyburn High School, class of 1941. He married Ellen Myrtle Short, the daughter of Ira Temple Short and Myrtle Ellen Campbell, November 11, 1942 in the Logan Temple. Their best friends for life and eternity, Dale McCombs and Nola Garner were married on that same day in the same Temple.

Together, Keith and Ellen raised lots of farm animals and six children, Gary (Deborah), Dianne (Herschel) Nordhaus, Earl (Janice), Jackie (Robert) Kay, Dean (Betty Jo) and Connie. They have 18 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren. While running the farm, Keith also worked as a welder/machinist for J.R. Simplot and later drove heavy equipment for his brother-in-law Louis Stimpson.

Dad served in many Church callings throughout his life. He served as a second counselor in the Heyburn LDS Ward to Bishop Glayde Wilcox and with first counselor Harlow Cheney in 1975.

Dad worked hard throughout his life and was always concerned about the welfare of his family. He taught and lived his life with integrity. While he would never say he was anywhere nearly as good as he should be, his example for honesty, hard work and good has guided the lives of every member of his family.
