Cohoes- On October 12th 2018, William C. McKeon, loving husband, father of three daughters and grandpa of three grandsons, died peacefully at the age of 71, and was reunited with the love of his life, his wife Pat.
He was born in Troy NY, to the late William and Katherine McKeon. He graduated LaSalle Institute in Troy NY, and briefly attending college in Albany NY, but soon thereafter drafted to serve his country on February 10th, 1967 for the United States Army as SP 4 in the Vietnam war.
