Shawn, What a gift to have a dad like yours! If I close my eyes, as a kid I walk up into Stephen Philips. I first see and say hello to Floyd Priest and then a little further up the sidewalk I say hi to Mr Keefe. These two men were always watching over us. Shawn, during this period I pray to God to comfort you and your family. Your dad is now in the company of the saints and reunited with those he loved who have gone to their rest before him. An old friend, Jeff Williams

We will never forget Jack...The great and endearing friendship that started as city councilmen and deepened through the years where Jack and Virginia celebrated their birthdays together on January 23rd. With 30 years of friendship you cant quite remember all the stories. Every mention of his name brings up another memory of high school football, The Steelers, and watching Notre Dame will never be the same. Jack will always be loved and forever missed... Always Bill and Virginia Braddick

Uncle Jack was a one of a kind human being. He had a true zest for life and a heart of gold. We will never forget his big smile and his optimistic view of life. I remember the first time I met Uncle Jack he asked me all of these questions about Texas and Austin. We were so happy to learn that he loved to travel across the country. We were so happy to welcome Uncle Jack and Aunt Mary Lou to our home in Austin. We will treasure those memories forever. Uncle Jack was an exemplary member of his generation -- a great husband and father, a loyal coach and mentor, and a friend to us all. Ali, Kathy, and I are so sorry we could not attend the services. We will miss him so much. Our condolences to our family.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Dear Mary Lou, Sandy, Sheila, Shawn,& extended Family, Words are hard to come by at times like this. You have continually been in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. To all of you who loved Jack so much know that the legacy he left you did not come with his passing. It started the day you met him. The few times we were around him we could feel his love, strength, peace, joy, and how important his family was to him. He gave you wonderful times and memories to treasure forever. Yes, his earthly presence is gone, but he will live with you in your hearts.....and, he is NOW sitting in the presence of Almighty God. Love and Blessings to you all.

To the Keefe family, all of you have been in my life since Floyd and Pat Priest (my sister and brother-in-law) first moved to steven phillips homes. You guys were the first to welcome us into your home. I always miss the christmas eves we would spend over there. Jack was a ball of fun and i was very greatful that he was apart of my life and being there when they both died. Now all i can say that Big Daddy and Pat has welcomed him in and i know that they are all sitting around the table cracking jokes. My love to the family and you know i am here whenever you need me Dianna Barkley

So sorry to read about Mr. Keefe's death in the paper this morning. I have such fond memories of this man while teaching his son at St. John's in Monaca.... all the basketball games and activities we shared because of his enthusiasm and undying support of the kids and the school. The " good old days " with Mr. Keefe and his family will always be cherished by me. My sympathy to his family.
