From Dennis "Coach" Warren:
"To my TACAMO Navy and Big Navy friends and Family.
With a heavy heart… John “Manny” McKeon passed away this morning after fighting hard for the past 4-5 days in a hospital in St Louis surrounded by his loving wife Tawni, family and friends.
When I think of Manny… I think of these qualities. He was one of the most kindest and generous people I knew. He would go out of his way to see the good in everyone he met, from day one. With a warm smile, and an encouraging word when needed. A Patriot who loved OUR Great Country and a true Servant Leader! And most importantly, A great friend. He will be dearly missed.
I’ll post his Obituary when I receive it. Praying for his family and friends
TCVA extends its sympathy and prayer for peace to John's family and friends during this time of the passing.
