Keith Swenson Obituary

Keith Swenson was born August 28, 1935 in Afton, Wyoming to Louis Eldon and Ruth Gomm Swenson. He died November 16, 2023 in Pleasant View, Utah. He was raised in Osmond and was the oldest of 5 children. He has three brothers, Eldon, Val and Lanny and one sister, Kathy Call. He attended Osmond Elementary and graduated from Star Valley High School in 1953. He was known for his love of cars and the many convertibles, hot rods and cool cars he owned during his bachelor years. He spent many hours, days and years in his father’s repair shop. He worked for his uncle in the logging industry and lost his right eye in a serious accident while there. He attended Rick’s College in Rexburg, Idaho and Heavy Equipment School in Chicago, Illinois. He married his sweetheart, Janeve Draney, on June 23, 1965 in the Idaho Falls, Idaho temple. Their daughter, Kamie Joyce, was born on September 10, 1966. Their son, Kody Keith, was born January 3, 1972. Keith worked for the ASCS office for a few years. Then became the credit manager for Lower Valley Power and Light where he stayed until he retired in 2000. He loved to hunt, fish, boat and snowmobile. Keith had many friends because of his easy going attitude, his happy countenance and his infectious laugh. He continued to love cars and buy and sell many throughout his life.
