INTERMENT: Thurman Cemetery, Thurman, Iowa

James Clifford “Jim” Keightley, 65, of Thurman, Iowa, formerly of Glenwood, Iowa, entered into eternal rest on Jan. 4, 2009 in Hamburg, Iowa. He was born Dec. 30, 1943 in Mills County, Iowa to William Henry and Clara Una (McCrary) Keightley. Jim was raised in Mills County and graduated from Glenwood High School in 1962. He faithfully served his country in the Army during Vietnam from 1966-68.

Jim was united in marriage to Tamara Dee Ross on July 15, 1981 in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. They enjoyed spending time together and loved to go on road trips. Prior to his retirement, he was employed as an operating engineer in the construction business. Jim was a car fanatic. He loved to work on any type of automobile. Being a member of the Glenwood Tractor Club and Tabor V.F.W. gave Jim great pleasure. He was also a member of the Thurman City Council and would help make improvements in any way possible. He was the type of person that always had time to visit with family and friends. His canine companions, Petey and Daisy were never far from his side. Jim will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Preceding Jim in death were his parents, brothers, Charles and William Keightley and sister Nadine Doiel. He is survived by his wife Tami Keightley of Thurman, Iowa; brother, Joe & wife Becky Keightley of Glenwood, Iowa; sister, Cathy Vanatta of St. Paul, Minnesota; several nieces, nephews, extended relatives and a host of friends.
