Keith and Cherie were sweethearts through high school.  Keith married Cherie Barker December 20, 1963, in the Salt Lake Temple.  On December 20, 2013, Keith and Cherie and family celebrated their 50th anniversary.  The favorite memory of both is Weber High Acapella Choir.  Keith spent 3 years in the army in Germany.  Cherie joined Keith in Germany in March of 1964.  He was in the medical corps during Viet Nam.   Most of his unit was killed.  He went to Weber State graduating with high honors,  then attended the University of Utah Medical School.  The rest of his life was spent taking care of patients, which he truly enjoyed.  Keith was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings.  He especially loved teaching the gospel.
