In Loving Memory, Keith Adams

It is with deep sadness that the Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW) announces the recent passing of Keith Adams, our Director of Grassroots Outreach.

Keith profoundly impacted the story of Washington state. His dedication to our organization produced significant results, effectively representing the essential interests of Christians at the highest levels of our state government. In essence, Keith’s life exemplified the transformative power of influencing the world for Christ in every aspect of life. His contributions to FPIW will create a lasting legacy for years to come.

Born in Chicago, Keith moved to the Pacific Northwest at the age of 13. He pursued higher education at Highline College, Western Washington University, and ultimately graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. Keith dedicated 40 years to management roles with Weyerhaeuser Co. before joining the Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA). Embracing God’s calling on his life, Keith collaborated with pastors and Christian leaders in Washington state, supporting Franklin Graham’s Decision America Tours.

Upon joining the FPIW staff in 2018, Keith’s extensive experience assisted us in working with churches, pastors, and Christian businesses. He fearlessly championed our core principles of life, parental rights, biblical marriage, and religious freedom. Keith was particularly recognized for his involvement in the “Crisis in Education” seminars held across the state last year.

As impressive as all those accomplishments are, Keith would undoubtedly rather be remembered most for his family legacy. A devoted husband, father, and grandfather, he left an indelible mark not only on future generations of his family but on our entire state. Keith was our respected colleague and our beloved friend. Although he will be greatly missed at FPIW and home, we acknowledge – with profound confidence – that he is now in the presence of Jesus, hearing the words that each of us aspires to hear:

“Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” (Matthew 25:21, KJV)

Our prayers go out to his wife, Sandy, and family as they mourn the loss of this great patriarchal leader. Cards and donations marked “Keith Adams” can be sent to:
