Randon Andersen Keyes returned to the arms of his Heavenly Father on April 11, 2015 as the result of a motor vehicle accident.
Randon was born on March 27, 1990 in Monticello, UT, the fifth child of Jim and Linda Keyes.
A graduate of Monticello High School in 2008, Randon will be remembered by his peers for his jovial personality and relentless sense of humor.
His family and closest friends will remember a kind soul, loving brother, and selfless son. Randon’s primary concern was always about others. His tender heart blessed all.
Randon left this earth without regret. He lived life to the fullest, focused on his priorities. Randon had a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is a true credit to his political beliefs.
He was determined to become financially self-sufficient, unwilling to compromise with the understanding that his duty as an American Citizen was to contribute to society’s growth.
At the time of his passing, Randon was well on his way to accomplishing this dream. His genuine demeanor radiated as he would cheerfully assist others in need.
Randon showed considerable passion in whatever endeavor he pursued. His precious and infectious laugh thrilled all within its reach. Randon believed that all of life’s problems could be soothed with the consumption of a properly cooked hot dog. Randon found joy in life’s simplest pleasures.
Randon is survived by his parents, Jim and Linda Keyes; grandparents, Dale A. Keyes and Shirley C. Keyes; siblings, Joshua (Stefanie), Matthew (Kelli), Krista (Josh) Abernathy, Justin, and Jamie Keyes. Randon will be missed most by his nieces and nephews, all of whom loved their uncle unconditionally. They include Madison, J.D., Jackson, and Jaren Keyes along with Torin and Barbara Abernathy.
Randon was preceded in death by his grandparents, Odeen and LaZelle Andersen.
A very special thank you to the support that has been shown Randon’s family during this difficult time. Tragedy will unite a family and strengthen a community. Randon’s example of selfless behavior has been emulated with multiple acts of kindness and generosity.
Life is valuable, time is precious, and relationships are the very thread of humanity. Randon understood this better than most and lived ever day with unceasing compassion. When asked to describe Randon, the sentiment was unanimous. Randon Keyes has a big heart!
Funeral services will begin at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at the LDS North Chapel in Monticello, UT. A viewing will take place prior to the services from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
