Keith Roger Barzee, 58 of Terreton, ID passed away Sunday, April 14, 2019.
He was born November 28, 1960 in Idaho Falls, the 13th child of Arlo Everett Barzee and Sarah Hammon Barzee. He was raised on the family farm in Hamer, attended Hamer Elementary School and graduated from West Jefferson High School. He continued his education at Ricks College, earning a welding engineering degree. Keith worked on John Deere tractors for most of his adult life and took great pride in his work.
He was an Eagle Scout and was proud that each of his sons also earned their Eagle award. After high school, he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Ohio Cleveland Mission.
On July 9, 1982 he married his college sweetheart, Louise Marsden in the Idaho Falls Temple. They were blessed with 5 children and 9 grandchildren who adore him.
Keith enjoyed the outdoors; fishing, riding 4-wheelers in the mountains and giving the grandkids rides on the farm. He always had to be busy whether it was yard work or braiding. He loved his family and was so proud to be a grandpa. Keith was active in his church and served in many positions but especially loved serving with the youth. He had an infectious laugh and was a friend to all who knew him.
