Keith Fullenkamp
Keith Patrick Fullenkamp, 37, South Weber, Utah, formerly of St. Henry, passed away Sept. 24, 2013, in a traffic accident in Wyoming on his way home from an elk hunt in Colorado.
He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
Keith was born Aug. 10, 1976, to David J. and Marita B. Fullenkamp of St. Henry, and they survive. In February 2004, he met his future wife, Tanna. They were married July 8, 2006, in Northfork, Idaho, and resided in Clearfield, Utah.
He is survived by his wife, Tanna Fullenkamp, and son, Jake Talon Fullenkamp, South Weber, Utah; siblings, Shannon (Chad) Hemmelgarn and Jill (Mike) Gross, all of Columbus, and Beth (Luke) Wolf, Coldwater; nieces and nephews, Emerson, Harper and Ben Hemmelgarn, Aiden Gross, Amelia and Avery Wolf, Brandon, Britton and Camree Beedie, CJ and Misty Gittleson, Brooklyn Rowley and Alexa and Isabella Ernest; mother-in-law, Cindy (James) Chance, Salmon, Idaho, father-in-law, Mike (Cami) Ernest, Salmon; brothers- and sisters-in-law, Cami (Brian) Beedie, Great Falls, Mont., Holly (CJ) Gittleson, Williston, N.D., Emily (Michael) Rowley, Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, and Katrina Ernest, Salmon.
He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, John and Mary Ann Wermert, and paternal grandparents, Tiny and Ruby Fullenkamp.
The oldest of four siblings, he was born and raised in St. Henry and graduated from St. Henry High School in 1995. He attended The Ohio State University where he graduated with a degree in wildlife management. He obtained a master's degree from Weber State University in criminal justice.
His dream since he was a child was to move out West and become a conservation officer. In August 2003, he packed up his belongings and headed out to do just that in Salmon. He was employed with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. After moving around the state, he took a position as sergeant in the Northern Region, where he resided in South Weber, Utah.
He loved the outdoors and had a passion for wildlife. He enjoyed teaching youth conservation and how to hunt.
