Obituary: Terence Keogan

Terence (Terry) A. Keogan, 83, died peacefully surrounded by his immediate family on Jan. 23. Born in Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan, Ireland, he immigrated to the US in the mid-1950s and settled in the NY metropolitan area. He was a proud member of the 1952 Cavan All-Ireland Championship football team. Upon his arrival in NY he worked diligently at various jobs until he began service in the US Army. Shortly after completion of his military duty he married his loving wife of 53 years, Mary (nee O’Donnell). They settled in the suburbs of Long Island, where they raised six adoring children: Marguerite, Kevin, Terence, Maura, Jennifer, and James. After almost 40 years of hard work as both a bus driver for Queens Transit and successful owner of a small transportation company, Terry fully retired at the age of 70. Upon retirement, he moved to Dutchess County, NY with his wife, where he was a founding member of The Links Golf Club in Unionvale, NY. He is predeceased by his daughter Maura and survived by his wife, five children, and 14 grandchildren. Funeral Mass at the Church of Saint Patrick.  McLaughlin Kramer Megiel Funeral Home.
