I will never forget what a great man and leader Pat was. He was also my friend. My heart goes out to Kathie and his entire family

Pat will always be remembered by me as my career changer. His confidence in me and his support for my activities has made my work at Ingalls a very rewarding adventure. My thoughts are with the Keene family in this loss.

A Giant of a man and a hero and champion of the common Shipyard workers and the community. He was a friend to all no matter if you were rich or poor, black or white he was there for you. I will sadly miss him.
My prayers are with his family.

God Bless you.

The first time I ever met Pat Keene was a long time ago soon after he had been appointed as Director of Test and Trials. The purpose of the meeting was to review with him the manpower budget that had been allowed to him for his department. The meeting lasted for approximately one half hour and was interrupted numerous times by persons who were calling him for advice. From the one sided conversation that I over heard, it was obvious that the requests were from people who did not report to Pat but were at the same or higher level in the management structure. They were all seeking his advice on problems related to the shipyard but not necessarily to anything associated with the test and triasls program

I came away from the meeting thinking to myself that I had just reviewed a manpower plan with a guy whose assigned responsibility only touched the surface of the actual value of the man to his company. That realization was obviously soon realized by others within the company as his promotiional growth and success developed. I have admired Pat from that day forward,and I am proud to have known him, even if from a distance

The Chicago Hillegass family all express our sadness at your loss. We were treated many years ago to a wonderful evening with Pat and Kathie.

We never know how long we have. We know to make the best of the time we are given. Certainly Pat did this.

All our love. Pat and Louise Hillegass and family.

Dear Keene Family,
Our prayers for God's comfort are with you in your loss. Pat and I have been friends since our freshman year together at Georgia Tech in 1956.
