JOHN E. KEANEOn January 11, 2011, John E. Keane, 95, of Swissvale, passed away as gracefully as he lived his life, surrounded by the love of his family.

He was a distinguished Army Staff Sergeant from World War II, and a member of the American Legion, VFW, AARP, and past president of the A.O.H., Swissvale. He wore his Irish heritage with pride and honor, instilling that love, sentiment and sense of humor in his family. He enjoyed the love and respect of his friends, and that of his children's friends, because his kindness endeared him to all.
