Keith Whitehouse Lewis

Dec. 18, 1947 – Sept. 3, 2020

Keith Whitehouse Lewis passed away peacefully on Sept. 3, 2020, with his sweetheart, Pearl, by his side. He valiantly fought T-Cell Lymphoma for three years. 

He was born Dec. 18,1947, in Lovell to Croft (Bus) and Evelyn Lewis. Keith lived a life full of service that left an impression on all who knew him.

Keith spent all of his younger years living in Cowley. There, he enjoyed the simple things of life and learned hard work. 

Throughout school he was a popular athlete, participating in almost every sport. He excelled in basketball and was an all-state and an all-region athlete. He played baseball outside of school, playing any open position including pitcher and catcher. He was involved with his classmates outside of sports and was in student body government as president in 1966. 

Keith first met his soon to be wife, Pearl, his senior year while cruising the streets of Powell. 

After high school he went to Billings for a year of school. He returned home and joined the National Guard and served honorably for a six-year term.  Keith and Pearl began dating a year after that first look and courted each other for two years before they were married and sealed for time and eternity in the Idaho Falls Temple Aug. 23, 1968. They lived for a time in Powell while going to Northwest Community College, then moved to Provo to attend Brigham Young University. 

Keith treasured his family above all else. He put his wife before himself and cherished her every day. He would drop anything to be with any of his children and grandchildren. To some of his grandkids he was the best chauffeur, to others he was the morning pancake flipper, but to all he was their biggest fan. He loved to see his kids and grandkids succeed in school, arts, sports, music and in life. 

Keith is survived by his wife, Pearl; daughter Stacey (Robert); son Spencer (Jen); grandchildren Chase, Eris, Max, Shayla, Bryn, Gavin and Reese; brother Nick; and sisters Lorraine and Linda. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, son Tregen, twin brother Kim, older brother Ron, in-laws Carl and Gwen Miller and many other family members and friends.
