Keith Nolan Langston - 11/30/2005

Class of 1961

BLANDING - Keith Nolan Langston returned unexpectedly to the loving arms of his Heavenly Father on November 30, 2005. Keith was born June 16, 1943 to Francis Ivan and Maud Beardall Langston in Hurricane, Utah. He married Camille Hicken on June 3, 1969 in the St. George, Utah Temple for time and all eternity. Together they are the parents of six children: Jim (Tina) Tooele, UT, Clarinda (Geoffrey) Tooele, UT, Jared (Suzanne) Newton, UT, Jeremy (Tracey) Magna, UT, Jade (Tonya) Magna, UT, Jeff Orem, UT.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Keith served as a missionary in the Gulf States Mission, Branch President for the White Mesa Branch and many other church callings.

Keith loved children and embodied education. He graduated from Hurricane High School, attended Dixie College, and graduated with a bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Southern Utah State College in 1970 and a Master's of Education from Northern Arizona University in 1986. He was an influential teacher at Blanding Elementary School for 30 years where he taught 3rd and 5th grade.

Keith instilled his love of learning on his wife and children. His wife and their two oldest children attained master's degrees, three of the remaining four children have Associates of Science. All five of Keith's sons are Eagle Scouts. One of the greatest legacies he left with his children was the value of hard work. Keith kept in constant contact with his children and grand children. He often told his children and grandchildren that he loved them. Keith loved the outdoors, teaching his children to hunt and fish and appreciate the splendor of San Juan County.

Keith was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife,
Camille, six children and seven grand children, two brothers (Lynn and Clair) and three sisters (Elaine, Nedra and Jean).
