It is with the deepest sense of sadness I announce the passing of my baby brother, John W Keves, Class of 1977.
John was the Houston Alumni Chapter representative, still listed, and he and his wife Janet proudly organized a full schedule of Alumni events over a 30+ year period, including communion breakfasts, golf outings and trips and visits from Manhattan Administrators.
John graduated with a degree in Business Administration and played on the baseball team during his time at The College.
Sadly, John passed on March 2, 2018 after a 5-year battle with esophageal cancer.His beloved wife, Janet, sadly passed 7 months earlier from cancer. He is survived by his children Laura, Thomas and Jennifer, son-in-law Bentley and rescue hound, Oscar, who he found on his doorstep 10 years ago and who never left his side.His family in New York include his sister Kathy,me, my wife Teresa and numerous nieces and nephews, who loved him dearly.
Neither John nor Janet will be forgotten.
