CELEBRATING 300 YEARS OF THE LASALLIAN MISSION.

The Manhattan College community dedicates a community artwork to commemorate the life and legacy of St. John Baptist de La Salle for the Tercentenary.

The Vatican declared 2019 as a Jubilee Year (Nov 17, 2018 – December 31, 2019) to recognize the 300th anniversary of the death of Saint John Baptist De La Salle (April 30, 1719).

“A Jubilee Year offers the opportunity to express our faith through concrete actions in favor of those most in need. I invite all of you to celebrate the jubilee through practical acts of kindness and service to young people yearning for mercy and compassion,” says Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, Superior General of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle Christian Brothers).

St. John Baptist de La Salle is the founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, and Patron of Christian Teachers. Manhattan College, as the first Lasallian institute of higher education in the world, created a community artwork collage of our Lasallian experiences. Students, faculty and staff contributed to this truly special work of art, and discussed the importance of living the Lasallian mission united with one heart, one commitment, one life.

OBITUARY
John Patrick O’Keefe
OCTOBER 22, 1926 – NOVEMBER 12, 2018

John Patrick O’Keefe, “Jack”, age 92, of Chattanooga passed peacefully in his home on November 12, 2018.

John was born in New York City on October 22, 1926, to Patrick O’Keefe of County Mayo and Sally Craven of County Galway, Ireland. Coming of age during the Great Depression as the son of immigrant parents, he began working after school delivering groceries at age 8. In his teens, he worked as an usher at the Metropolitan Opera. He entered the Navy V-5 pilot training program in 1944, and was in V-12 training at Dartmouth College when the war ended. He used his military victory bonus points to buy a television for his parents, and eventually helped them buy their first house.

He graduated from Manhattan College and later moved to Chattanooga in 1967. He spent his professional life working as a Human Resources Director for GAF, Polysar, and BASF.

He retired in 1993, and turned his energy to a life-long passion for wildlife by volunteering for many happy years at the Tennessee Aquarium. Gentle and kind, he loved reading, ice cream, nature, animals, Braves baseball, Rangers hockey, and Notre Dame football. He was a member of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, as well as being a proud Irishman, loving father, brother, and grandfather. Most importantly, he was a devoted husband who spent 62 years married to the love of his life, his dear Patsy Devine O’Keefe. He often noted that the happiest moment of his life was when she accepted his marriage proposal.

He is predeceased by his brother, Gene. He is survived by his wife, Patricia, and their six children: sons Kevin and Brian (Carla) and daughters, Mary Ellen (Michael) Cahill, Dolores, Jackie (Luke) Powers, and Sheila (Richard) Lloyd. John is also survived by eight grandchildren: Patrick, Bridget, and Maura O’Keefe; Devin and Erin O’Keefe; Kathleen Cahill; Phoebe and John Powers. He is also survived by his sister, Kathleen (Tom) Ryan.

A Funeral Mass will be held in the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Saturday November 17, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. with Father Mike Nolan officiating. The family will receive friends at the East Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home on Friday evening from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. He will be laid to rest in the Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Tennessee Aquarium. Arrangements are under the care of Chattanooga Funeral Home Crematory and Florist East Chapel, 404 South Moore Rd. East Ridge, TN 37412.
