Condolences for the family of “Mike Keogh”

Condolence from John McKendrick on March 9th, 2021 3:33 pm

I was very sorry to hear about Mike’s death.
I went to the same school as Mike at St. James in Colgan, Ontario but was a year ahead of him so didn’t know him well at that time.
I reconnected with Mike in the late 1980’s by accident when I moved back to Tottenham from Saskatchewan.
One night I was out late with one of my friends, Wayne Gooderham, and headed back to his place only to discover that Mike was living next door and still up reading one of his many books. We immediately connected and I quickly came to realize how well-read Mike was. Wayne would invite Mike to join us and that is when the conversation started. I remember learning that he was an avid reader and him showing me all the books he had read. I would then talk about some of my favourite authors and on the conversation would go until the wee hours of the morning. We would move from books to politics and then we would talk about what it was like to grow up in Tottenham and to go to St. James School in Colgan and then he would talk about what it was like to grow up as part of the Keogh clan and we would go on for hours and hours and sometimes until the sun came up and then we would head over to the Cedar Kitchen Restaurant for breakfast before going our separate ways and heading back home to bed.
This happened many times over until I showed up one day and asked where Mike was and was told he had moved to Bracebridge.
I never saw Mike again after that but I have fond memories of our time together and am sorry that I never reconnected with him. He was definitely a great storyteller with a sense of humour.
I have said a prayer for him and hope that he rests in peace.

I miss you Mike. It’s too bad we couldn’t still be kids and hang out like we did.
Your cousin Stephen Milbury
