WENDELL—Keegan Carl Anderson, of Boise and formally of Wendell, was born May 28, 1991, in Jerome, Idaho to Kenny Anderson and Tammy (Pinkston) Martinez. Keegan attended school in Wendell until his senior year when he wanted to enjoy his senior year with his mom in Middleton, Idaho.
Keegan was always busy doing activities. He participated in Boy Scouts, taekwondo, and swim team while in elementary school. Keegan loved to skateboard and was always building contraptions to skate on. Keegan was baptized at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Wendell, where he attended catechism. He also loved attending family night at the New Life Community Church in Wendell and hardly ever missed a Wednesday night.
Keegan was a gifted athlete. He inherited his dad’s love for baseball and softball and knew he could set aside life’s pain when he was on the field. Keegan also played football and basketball while attending Wendell schools. When he moved to Middleton, he had the opportunity to play football and baseball on a new level. While on the Middleton football team he was able to participate in their play-off games. After Keegan graduated from high school, he continued his love for baseball and played in many softball tournaments in Idaho, Nevada.
He shared the love of Honda cars, with his brother Kenny. Keegan loved rescuing dogs and cats and making them family.
Keegan was a hard worker. He helped his dad on the farm when he was younger. He also had the opportunity to work alongside his brother, John Perez, and learn how to install pools and tile. These skills came easily to him.
Keegan spoke from his heart. He was honest and always would let us know his regrets and goals. His smile and laugh were big and his heart even bigger.
Keegan leaves behind a lot of broken hearts: his dad - Kenny (Tami) Anderson, his brother Kenny and sister Camas Anderson all of Wendell; his mom - Tammy (Gilbert) Martinez of Nampa; his brother - John (Desiree) Perez and niece Jaylin Perez and nephew Tommy Perez of Nampa; his Uncle Greg Anderson of Seattle, Washington; his brothers - Adrian and Jarred Martinez. Keegan also leaves behind his girlfriend - Chalandrea Declue and her daughters Aiyhannah Declue and Brynleigh Declue and son Bryson Declue. In the seven months’ time that they dated, Keegan attended the children’s events and planned on teaching them the love of softball.
