Hi I'm Bob Keiser

I am a retired U.S. Secret Service Agent, a Sculptor, and a Father. I protected Presidents, Kings, and Prophets! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I became a U. S. Secret Service Agent during the Presidency of Lyndon Johnson. I protected Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, their Vice-Presidents and many of their family members. I was also assigned to protect former President Eisenhower. I have protected Prophets, Kings and Queens, Heads of State, Emperor and Empress of Japan and other foreign dignitaries from numerous countries. I traveled on protective assignments to over 30 foreign countries and I was among those who traveled around the world with President Nixon. I was with Vice President George Bush when he attended a funeral in Moscow, Russia. In between protective assignments I conducted Secret Service Intelligence investigations, and criminal investigations dealing with counterfeiting, forgery, identity theft and credit card fraud. I am a sculptor of bronze figures and portraits. My largest statue is 8 feet tall. I did not know I had a talent for sculpture until I took a sculpture class to satisfy a university graduation requirement. I am married and have nine children and 37 grandchildren to whom I should tell the many stories of my life. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in the scripture that says, “Man is that he might have joy”. That suggests to me, that there are established principles to live by that bring us either joy or misery. I have experienced both and I prefer to be happy. I know there is a living God who is the creator of this earth and all things in the heavens. I know He is our Father in Heaven, to whom we pray. I know He has a purpose for creating this earth for us. It is His Plan of Happiness. I know He is unchangeable and that He has established a number of ways whereby we can learn of Him. One of the ways is through His Prophets. I know that He has Prophets on the earth today. Through His living Prophets He has answered the questions, Where did we come from? Why we are here? and Where we are going when we die? Answers to these questions have given purpose to my life. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins and provide the way for us to return to Him on conditions of our repentance and our obedience to His commandments. God has promised that He will share all that He has with us. I know these things are true and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I know God answers our prayers, so I pray to Him. I read the scriptures, and I attend my church meetings. I strive to follow the counsel of living Prophets, and obey God's commandments. I strive to emulate the example set by Jesus Christ. I also strive to treat my fellow man as I would like to be treated. I know that God knows me and He knows the things I do in my life. I know that someday I will stand before Him and give an accounting for my actions. I hope it can be said of me that I lived my life doing good.
