Keith Allen Pierce, 78, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 22, when Keith peacefully returned home, with his loving wife beside him.
Keith was born on May 18, 1942, in Evanston, and was raised on the family ranch in Hilliard. He lived in the area most of his life. His parents were Joseph and Stella Cook Pierce, and his siblings include Chet, Vida Parsons, Bonnie Steed, John, Bill, Ralph, Roger, Don and Russell.
Keith married Waynetta Owens, and from that union had Jaunita Delrae (Ed) McHone, Allena Ann (John) Pierce, Chad Allen (Kelli Taylor) Pierce. They later divorced. Keith married Kim Kemp and they had a son, Keith Cody Pierce, together.
Keith enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time outdoors. He was always a generous man and hard worker and never hesitated to help another in need. Keith is loved and will be deeply missed by his family.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer’s Association, as this devastating disease diminished Keith’s last years.
Keith and his family would like to express special thanks to his second family at Beehive home of Perry, Utah. He spent his last four and a half years with this dear staff who loved and cared for him. Their efforts are so appreciated, and their loving support provided much comfort to the family. We would also like to thank Tender Care Home Health and Hospice for its excellent care and support in his last days.
Family services will be held at a later date.
