Keith Sterling Stull was born June 18, 1931, in West Des Moines, Iowa to Carroll (C.A.) and Sadie Stull. They moved to the farm, where Thelma Stull now lives, when Keith was a child. He attended country school and Dallas High School. Graduating at the age of 16, he worked with his uncle Les in the Masonry trade where he excelled with his efficient and quality work.
Keith was drafted into the United States Army and served in Germany during the Korean Conflict as a MP and in the motor pool. Before going overseas, he was married to Phyllis Goode on July 28, 1951. Upon returning from the service, he continued to work in construction and while pursuing his and Phyllis’ dream of farming.
The couple began farming in 1955. They raised dairy cattle, hogs, chickens, sheep, and beef cattle. They were proud to produce Grade A milk for over 20 years. The farm was a way of life for Keith, he enjoyed working beyond sun-up to sun-down, if he was not doing chores, he was building fence. If you were to catch him taking a break, you might find him with a bowl of ice cream.
Although he was a very hard worker, he always made time for family. The grandchildren remember doing chores and riding in the back of the truck or gator while checking cows and getting to mix milk replacer with their hands and feeding the bottle calves.
Keith had a deep faith that showed through out his life. He knew that whatever happened, with the help of God he could overcome any obstacle or hardship. Keith was a faithful member of the Dallas Christian Church and had served in many leadership positions over the years.
