Beloved husband, father and grandfather, Lewis Keith Bowen, age 75, passed away December 18, 1994 at a local convalescent center.
Born September 11, 1919 in Castleford, Idaho to William W. Bowen and Mary A. Larsen. Married Cleo Richardson June 5, 1939 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.Keith was a man of hard work and dedication. His personal motto was, "Anything worth doing is worth doing well."
He graduated from BYU with both bachelors and masters degrees, taught in Utah public schools and at San Diego State College, and served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific in World War II. In 1954 he began a long and successful career with Honeywell Inc., where he achieved company-wide success as a "legendary" sales executive. He retired after 27 years with the company. In his achievements, he always was well liked and was kind and generous to his colleagues.
As significant as these achievements were, they were important to him only because they were the means by which he served his family. Family was always first to Keith, and no husband or father ever could have done better.
Our family expresses sincere thanks to those who have served him and Cleo for the past 31/2 years of his extended illness. We appreciate the staff and administration at Sandy Regional Rehabilitation & Convalescent Center, as well as many devoted family and friends, especially of the Brighton 4th Ward neighborhood.
Keith is survived by his wife; daughter, Jeneal and Darryl Kristjanson; son, Steven and CyndaLee Bowen; and by eight grandchildren: Jon and Julie Kristjanson, Jennifer, Elizabeth, Trevor, Leslie, Matthew and Peter Bowen.
