Gary Keith Causey, age 68, peacefully passed away at home on Sunday, June 11, 2023. He was born on July 27, 1954, to Donald and Twila Causey in Piggott, Arkansas. He was married to Cheryl Causey for 41 years as they created a life of adventure by finding joy and partnership in every season of life.

Keith was preceded in death by his parents.

Keith is survived by his wife, Cheryl, his children, Esther Causey, Bradley and Christan Causey, and his grandchildren: Cavin, Paxton, and Havyn; his siblings Michael Causey (wife – Patty), Dallas Causey (wife – Dianne), Theresa Hooper (husband – James), Wayne Causey, and Rena Cullum (husband – Billy).

Shortly after high school, Keith apprenticed for a number of years to become a master jeweler, which gave him an opportunity to turn an interest into a vocation and a lifelong hobby. His creative design and expertise were shared with countless family, friends, and customers who now cherish having a unique part of his incredible gift for beautiful jewelry. He worked for over 30 years in the food service industry, most recently with Ben E. Keith as a Purchasing Manager. The most tangible expression of his generosity was through church ministries which included construction projects, men’s ministry, and church usher. Keith’s interests and hobbies centered on his vacations in Maine with his kids and grandchildren; family fishing trips with his parents and siblings; and getaways with Cheryl and their dogs camping, hiking, and kayaking.

Keith’s legacy is marked by countless family and friends whose lives were forever impacted by the steady faithfulness of his heart to serve God and others. He was known for his quiet and gentle nature, and a deep care and kindness for all. Keith’s grandchildren cherish the countless games of catch on the beach and classic “dad joke” humor. Keith modeled a life of prayer, steady faith, and trust in the Lord. His family and friends will deeply miss the gift of his presence in their lives but know he is home and at peace with the Lord.

    I did not know Keith well, but worked with him for the last 6 years and could “see” his smile and positive attitude through phone and email conversations. I am blessed to have known the little of him that I did, and send prayers for healing and peace to all his family and friends.

    I met Keith and Cheryl at Discovery Church in 2015. A precious, humble couple. My wife, April, and I would listen to their stories of “kayaking” and vacationing in the US. A truly gentle man who I considered a brother and friend. May he find eternal joy and peace in the arms of our Lord.

    My husband and I offer are sincere condolences and prayers to all his family members. Keith mischievously got us ready for his “Dad joke” of the day at the office and he never failed to deliver. I appreciated his kindness, support and encouragement to all. He was an exemplary cubicle mate, friend and brother. I look forward to seeing him again and laughing at his next pun.

    “‘It is impossible for God to lie.’ (Hebrews 6:18; Titus 1:2) Because Jehovah cannot lie, I know that he will fulfill his promise to resurrect the dead.

    I can still remember the day the Causeys and Duckworths came to Walnut Ridge and opened the Otasco store. I bought bicycles, fishing poles, 22 ammo and whatever else they had that was fun and exciting! They let me put a fishing pole on layaway so I could pay it off 25 cents a week. Keith and Mike were like brothers from different parents, and I spent countless hours trying to be as cool as they were, especially Keith! Man, that guy had girls waiting on him hand and foot! We were all in the band, and shared every day of marching rehearsals with Arlin hollering at us and blowing those brass horns as loud as we could!! I know how hard it is to lose a brother; I’ve lost two, and I miss them both more than words can say. I pray that they are safe in heaven with Keith and his Mom and Dad! When we all get to Heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be!!

    Sam and David and the Ponder family.
