    Keri and all those who have so warmly communicated your affection for Grandpa, we say thank you; your kind words mean a great deal to all of Keith's family.
    We are grateful for the legacy he left us. In particular, I am most grateful for his passion for learning and teaching-they seemed to go hand in hand. As many have said he was a gentleman. Grandpa, I hope to be as noble and regal as you were. May all of your students-professional associates, UofU and BYU students, children and grandchildren-honor your memory with the same tenacity as you did and likewise honor Him in whom we all received those wonderful and divine endowments, called talents.

    Respectfully,


    A Loving Grandson

    As a student just beginning in upper division classes at BYU, Keith Eddington taught our class the basics of illustration and graphic design AND a most important element - competition in the market. Until that point, I had not decided between fine arts and illustration. He taught us what expectations and deadlines might really be like. He lectured well and gave valuable assignments. I learned a lot from him, more than many of my fine arts teachers were willing to share.I have good memories of his class, and believe it or not, my written notes as well. I'm sorry I can not thank him today but perhaps his family will be glad to hear from someone who still remembers one class - one semester 25 years later!
