Keith Stephen Uscola
Keith Stephen Uscola, a 73-year-old resident of Burley, and our beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend, died Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2007, from heart failure.
Keith was born on Aug. 21, 1933, in Pingree, Idaho, the first of four sons born to Steve and Reva Jolley Uscola. The family moved to the Emerson area in 1936, and resided there on the family farm. Keith attended all 12 years of school at Heyburn. He was very active in sports playing football, basketball and baseball, and was active in the FFA. Upon graduation in 1951, he had scholarships to the University of Idaho in Agriculture and also one to play football. After four days at the University, he decided that was not for him and came home planning to attend Idaho State University, which as you know he didn’t do. He went to work for PGI and Western Auto.
He married his high school sweetheart, Dorothy Sherfey on Feb. 8, 1953, and they lived in Burley. He then worked for Scotty and Sam Henderson at their Texaco Station until he was drafted into the United States Navy on Dec. 7, 1955. Every seventh draftee that month was drafted in the Navy. After boot camp in San Diego, California, he was assigned to a Destroyer Escort and was stationed in Hawaii. During the next two years he saw a lot of the world n Okinawa, Japan, Hong Kong n and all the ports thereof. Time was spent on two Destroyer Escorts and one Destroyer, definitely not the largest ships in the Navy. Upon his arrival at home, he worked for Young’s Dairy and Vendors. His route took him to the new project where the Veterans had drawn farms. They were a great bunch of customers.
Keith and Dorothy were blessed with the birth of a son, Kevin Steve on Nov. 11, 1961. During these years, he coached little league football and basketball, and refereed high school basketball. He also played some outlaw basketball. In 1964, Keith purchased the Texaco Distributor business in Burley, the Texaco Service Station in Paul, and leased the Ponderosa Texaco. During this time he had a great time watching our son grow. Kevin was active in the community playing basketball, baseball, football, golf, wrestling, and the piano. He enjoyed fishing and hunting, and was active in the Boy Scouts. In school, Kevin was the Junior High School student body vice-president and later the president, and was also the Burley High School student vice-president. Tragedy struck and Kevin lost his life in an accident on July 28, 1978. Kevin was the light of Keith’s life and truly a joy! Keith continued with the Burley Booster Club and supported Kevin’s classmates through the balance of their high school and college years. They were a super class and were still his pride and joy.
Keith semi-retired in 1996, after selling his business to United Co-op in Rupert. He worked spring and fall delivering fuel to those same great customers going back to the days of Young’s Dairy, until January of 2004. He loved fishing, golfing, and hunting with Augie Dog. He also enjoyed fishing in Alaska with friends, nephews and niece, and working in the yard and flowers.
Keith is survived by his wife of 54 years, Dorothy of Burley; one brother, Lyle (Paula) Uscola of Meridian; one sister-in-law, VoLynn Uscola of Paul; his sister, Margaret Farnum of Los Angeles, California; a brother-in-law, Kenneth (Renee) Sherfey of Oakley; our God child, Dr. Austin Findley of Oakwood, Ohio; and Brian Findley of Charleston, South Carolina; and many nieces and nephews whom he dearly loved.
In addition to his son, Kevin, he was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Elmer and Frank; his father and mother-in-law, Wallace and Gladys Sherfey; and a brother-in-law, Delbert Sherfey.
Keith will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20, 2007, at the Burley United Methodist Church, 450 E. 27th St., with the Rev. Darcey Gritzmacher officiating. Burial will be in the Pleasant View Cemetery.
