Happy Thursday, my friends. I began this wonderful journey called life on August 2, 1918. Born to Delpha Pettey and Earl Acord in the small mining town of Ferran, Utah. Later I was to be joined by sister, LaVoyle Reese and brother, Dale, both who reside in Salt Lake City.

Lonnie and I met and married in February of 1943, and later had three children, Nancy, Terri, and Gary, who have not only been my children, but also my best friends, especially after Lonnie died in 1985.I worked for many years in the insurance industry and particularly enjoyed the 24 years I spent at Zions Bank as their Risk Manager. The people I met there became special friends and I thank them for the time we shared together.

What an exciting adventure my life has been. I was never quite able to perfect my golf swing while here and so, on Saturday, December 3, 1994, while sitting comfortably in my chair, I went in search of my swing, a new golf course and to rejoin my little honey again.

Please join my friends and family in a celebration of my life Friday, December 9, at Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, at 7 p.m. and again Saturday, December 10, at Royal Farms Club House from 6-9 p.m., 2102 East Royal Farm Drive (6655 South).

I hope each and every one of you stops to take the time and enjoy your own special journey through life. Farewell and God Bless, Keith.
