Keith Clarence Bergevin
Keith was born January 1, 1922 in Walla Walla, WA, the second son of four boys of parents Clarence Bergevin and Lois Reavis.
He was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Washington State College. Enlisting in the Army to serve in WWII he rose to the level of Master Sergeant. Keith was stationed in the Petit Palaise in Paris with General Eisenhower where he developed a passion for French design. Upon his return from the war, WSC had developed a new School of Interior Design which Keith would enroll in. He graduated in 1948, moved to Seattle and began employment at the Bon Marche. This is where he would meet Joan Birkeland who he would marry June 22, 1951. Keith and Joan built a home on Mercer Island in 1953 and there they raised their two sons Jay Keith Bergevin (Karen) and Scott Evans Bergevin (Janine).
In 1966 Keith and Joan (and sons) opened Valley Furniture and Interiors in Redmond, fulfilling both of their dreams of Interior Design. Both of their sons, daughters in law and all four grandchildren Brett, Chad, Sydney and Garrett also worked at Valley.
Keith and Joan moved to Madison House retirement community, Kirkland, in 2010. Keith passed away peacefully December 5, 2014. He is survived by his brother Duane Bergevin and numerous much loved cousins, nieces and nephews.
