Brick - James Edward O'Keeffe, age 78, passed away on Sunday, March 25, 2018 in Brick, NJ. James was born and raised in New York. He proudly served in the United States Army and worked in the printing and graphic arts advertising industry. He and his wife, Margaret, raised their family in Pearl River, NY before moving to Brick, NJ in 1996. James was a devout catholic and a parishioner of St. Dominic's RC Church.

James was full of life and determination. He was a man of integrity, and always willing to lend a helping hand. He welcomed challenges and there was no such word as "can't" in his vocabulary. As a result of his optimistic outlook, drive and determination, James accomplished so much. One of his most recent accomplishments was his involvement with the planning and project management of building a gazebo overlooking a lake dedicated to the veterans.

Predeceased by his parents James & Nancy O'Keeffe.
