LYNCHBURG, VA – Keith Wayne Cheek, 62, of Lynchburg, VA, went to his eternal rest on Monday
December 21, 2020 after a brief illness. Born in Bedford, VA on Friday November 28, 1958, Keith was
the son of Barbara Ann (Pendleton) Cheek Overstreet and the late Lyle Coleman Cheek.

In addition to his father, Keith was preceded in death by brother, Stuart Lee Cheek.

In addition to his mother, Keith is survived by son Gideon Preston Cheek of Lynchburg, VA, brother
Clayton Lyle Cheek (Nicole) and nephew Carson Cheek of New York. Keith also leaves behind a
beloved friend, Gwen Lovelace.

Keith attended Kate Collins Junior High School and Jefferson Forest High School. Keith joined the
Navy, serving on the maiden voyage of the USS Nimitz (CVN 68) and the USS Edenton (ATS 1).

When Keith returned to Lynchburg, VA in the early 80s he began working for, and eventually became
the owner of the family business, "Famous Inc.," a menswear shop. Keith was a recognized member of
the downtown community and took pride in providing his customers with fine men's clothing, ensuring
they looked their best for over 30 years. Keith also provided uniform alterations for area police officers,
firemen and the Lynchburg Hillcats baseball team until his retirement in 2016.

Keith loved the outdoors and all sports. Keith was an avid golfer and loved running "The Maury."
Keith also shared a love of history with Gideon, going on many history jaunts to battlefields and other
historical places. Keith kept us entertained with his wit and humor, and his presence will be sadly
missed by family and friends.

A celebration of Keith's life will take place at a later date to protect the health and safety of friends and
loved ones. Please feel free to post pictures and memories of Keith to his Facebook page in the interim.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to charities in Keith's name.
