Richard Michael Keefe


It is said the Irish have a gift for storytelling, and no one exemplified this more than Richard Michael ("Dick") Keefe, who left this world on March 20, 2020 at the age of 86 for the green hills of heaven, where we know he is holding court and telling stories now. He passed away peacefully at his home in Bay Head, New Jersey after a long illness, surrounded by his loving family. Please go to the O'Brien Funeral Home website for Richard's obituary ( or

So sorry for the Keefe famly's loss. I knew Dick from housing. He was a great guy. Someone you could always count on and he always had the best advise. I was a young guy and new to housing and he took me under his wing as he did many.

A great loss to his family and the NJ housing community. I live in Brick and ride by his house often. May he RIP. I will never forget my fellow Irishman.

I hope you will advise me of date, time and location of his memorial service.
Thank you.

Marion and Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your lovely husband, Dad and Granddad. What a wonderful tribute and obituary I just read. You all were indeed blessed with a wonderful handsome Irishman. He appeared to do more in his lifetime than most could do in 3 lifetimes. I am so sorry for your huge loss.
