William Keith Graham

Feb. 15, 1935 – Oct. 6, 2021

William Keith Graham returned to the arms of his loving wife, Mildred, after a near year-long separation on October 6, 2021. How grateful we are that they have been reunited.

Keith was born on February 15, 1935, to Lyle Olean and Ella Banks Graham in Cowley. He had one brother and three sisters. He graduated from Cowley High School.

Keith was a master crafter and could make and build anything and everything from trash to treasure. He was very creative and good with his hands.

On August 27, 1954, Keith married the love of his life, his sweetheart, Mildred Marie Wetzel, in the Salt Lake City Temple for time and all eternity. The family lived in Provo, Utah, for many years and then Mildred and Keith built their home in Lake Shore, Utah, in 1980 and resided there ever since. They became the proud parents of two children, a son followed by a daughter. William Lyle and Connie Marie were the highlight of their lives.

Keith worked for many years at the Utah Technical College as a grounds supervisor. He loved his job and took great pleasure in fixing things.

An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Keith served in many roles, but one of his favorites was a mission with his wife to the island of Fiji. Service was something Keith excelled at and was proud of. He loved to serve and help others around him.

Keith was preceded in death by his wonderful parents, Lyle and Ella; his everlasting sweetheart, Mildred; son William “Bill” Lyle Graham; and sisters Eugena Bellamy and Lilian Fry.

He is survived by his daughter, Connie, seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, sister Lylia Kirkpatrick of Casper and brother Don Graham of Fort Collins, Colo.

A graveside service was held Monday, Oct. 11, at 1 p.m. at the Springville Evergreen Cemetery in Springville, Utah.
