of Harrison, AR
June 1, 1989 - April 18, 2023
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Keith Adam Spellmeier of Harrison, Arkansas. He died at the young age of 33 on Tuesday, April 18, 2023. He was born on June 1, 1989, in Springfield, Missouri. Keith met his high school sweetheart in 2007, Katie Rae Spellmeier. They later welcomed their daughter, Aliyah Lenae Spellmeier, in May of 2008 and then married in November of 2008. In January 2012, they welcomed their son, Jace Adam Spellmeier. They spent 16 beautiful years together, but it wasn't nearly enough. Keith and Katie opened a gas station in Lead Hill, Arkansas, in 2011 while pursuing their associate's Degrees. They continued to beat the odds and graduated from Ozarks Technical Community College in 2012. Keith then obtained his HVAC license in 2014, and before his passing, he was a caregiver for his grandmother-in-law, Natalie, who referred to him as her "Golden Boy."His wife and kids were his world. He was the most devoted and loving husband and father and the ultimate protector. He loved traveling and seeing new places. He loved getting in a good workout and was proud of his children. His life was cut short, but he and Katie made the most of their time together, from scuba diving in the Caribbean to snow skiing in Colorado, NBA, and NFL games, Florida adventures, and so much more. He always put his loved ones first and served his family with the most love and patience. He never missed a ball game or dance performance for his children. He was always their number one fan, incredibly proud of their academic success. Anyone who knew Keith knew he was so proud of his children and who they were becoming. As Jace said, "He was the BEST dad." He was preceded in death by his unborn baby, his father, Keith Allen Spellmeier; his grandparents, Robert L. and Theresa Spellmeier; his grandfather, Bob Murphy and best friend, Calvin Allen Jr. He is survived by his wife, Katie Rae Spellmeier, and their two children; daughter Aliyah Lenae Spellmeier and son Jace Adam Spellmeier; his sister, Stacey Watson; his mother-in-law, Kimberly Inman (Doug Inman) and father-in-law, Steve Bernard; as well as his grandmother-in-law, Natalie Bernard; his grandmothers-in-law, Maggie Megalynn and Patsy Melton; his brother-in-law, Hezekiah Inman, and sister-in-law, Shaela Inman and many cousins and friends. Flowers may be sent to Roller-Christeson Funeral Home in Harrison, or a donation can be made to honor his legacy to Grandma's House Children's Advocacy Center, 501 W Stephenson Ave, Harrison, AR 72601.His Celebration of Life was held Tuesday, April 25th, at Roller-Christeson Funeral Home.

No one could have asked for a finer baby, toddler, teenager and young man. He beat the odds staked against him growing up and he rose above his environment becoming an outstandingly fine young man. His smiles and excelling kindness will be the forever memories I hold of Keith Adam. I hope that the countless, fine memories of him will forever warm the hearts of his beloved wife and children and bring smiles to their face, even behind the tears they shed. Forever in the minds and hearts of all who knew Keith Adam. Now, in Godâ€™s loving care, he is at peace. In Godâ€™s promises thereâ€™s hope. Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:11,29
You were taken from us way too soon. You were always a very special nephew. I mourn your loss but celebrate your life. Say hi to Murph for me and may you always rest in the arms of the angels. God Bless â¤ï¸
You were the best and strongest of us, and you loved and protected everyone until you left us. The world is never going to be the same without you in it. Fly high little brother. I love you, always, always. Iâ€™ll see you again, until then Iâ€™ve got the shenanigans here, you cover up there ðŸ’œ
Keith is now your beautiful Angel. He will be by your sides forever. So very sorry for your loss.
My heart goes out to you and your family love Sarah, Darrell, lyric
