He leaves behind his siblings Kenneth (Norma), Edward (Yvonne) and Debbie; 9 grandchildren as well as many nieces, nephews, in-laws and countless friends. He was predeceased by parents Jack and Joan Kehoe; his stepmother Mary Kehoe and his brother Keith Kehoe (Bonnie). He was known as Poppa/Grandpa to many and as “Gman” to friends. He was a man of many talents and was willing to help any and all who asked. He cherished his time at the trailer at Mink Lake and often told people that was where he would retire.
