Keith Allen Lawlyes, age 71, of Chrisman, IL went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at Union Hospital in Terre Haute, IN.
Keith was born March 24, 1949 in Clinton, IN to Ira Earl and Jeanette Marie (Bougus) Lawyles. He married Gloria Sue Riggen on September 16, 1968, and they recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary.
