OBITUARY

Michael Patrick McKeon Sr.

March 5, 1944December 17, 2019

Michael Patrick McKeon Sr., age 75, of Wallington, New Jersey passed away on December 17, 2019 after a battle with cancer. He was born in the Bronx in New York City (St. Luke's Parish) on March 5, 1944 to John Francis McKeon and Mary Bridget McKeon (née Sheehy). His parents immigrated to the U.S. from Ireland in 1928 and 1930.

Michael is survived by his son Michael McKeon Jr. (Christina) of Pittsboro, NC, brother John McKeon (Mae) of Deer Park, NY, and sisters Rosemary Lynch of Wading River, NY, Ann Quigley (James) of Rockaway, NY, Kathleen Hauser of Mt. Sinai, NY and Marion Kuhn (James) of Tucson, AZ. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Roger McKeon, and brothers-in-law Robert Hauser and Alan Lynch. Michael also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was fortunate to be surrounded by and in contact with so many family members and friends in his final days.

He spent his career at Degussa/Evonik in Parsippany, NJ as a logistics specialist where he formed many lifelong friendships with colleagues near and far. Family gatherings were a high point for Michael. He loved a good party and never missed an opportunity to get together and catch up with family and friends.

Throughout his life, Michael enjoyed many hobbies. His favorite fishing spots included the Little Bay Bridge pier near Fort Totten, NY, the trout rivers in the Catskills and New Hampshire, and the party boat out of Mattituck, NY. He had a passion for NY sports teams and had no problem rooting for both the Yankees and the Jets and the Giants.

Requiescat in Pacem

And for your family, I would like to share a German poem:
