At the age of 84, Keith Edward Beall passed away on July 15th 2020 in Lovell Wyoming.
Keith was born in 1935 to Arvel “Bill” and Julia Beall of Frannie, Wyoming where he lived the majority of his life. In 8th grade while making ice cream he met Ruby Lee and thanks to his handsome smile, fun loving attitude, and his notable dance moves he was able to convince her to become his wife in 1954. Together they had three children Carol (Mike McMillin), Blaine (Kay Beall), and Sid (Rox Ann Beall).
Keith was a fearless outdoorsman, avid fisherman, and had a knack for telling tall tales; so needless to say the exact size of the elk or number of fish caught should be accepted with caution. He enjoyed sharing his love of the outdoors with family and friends and often took the kids of Frannie for a week of fishing and camping in the Beartooth Mountains. This could be due to Keith’s fishing rule of 25 cents for the one who catches the first, biggest, and most fish, which he was the recipient of more often than not. To support his family and fishing habit Keith worked all over the state of Wyoming doing everything from being the mayor of Frannie to oil drilling, construction, rock crushing, farming, and as a plant operator for an oil refinery and lime plant.
Keith will always be remembered for his dry wit and his ability to have a conversation with anyone. His family shall miss him and hope to carry on his fishing legacy.
Keith is survived by his three children, six grandkids: Danny (Melissia Beall), Shawna (McMillin), Adam (Beall), Eric (Beall), James (Elizabeth McMillin), and Marcus (Erin Beall), and five great grandkids: Trenton (Beall), Logan (Beall), Hunter (Beall), Brinley (Beall), and Kaysen (Beall).
He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Doris Judy and Edna Graham.
