Sorry to hear of Kieth's passing. I truly enjoyed my years with the Brew Jays and like most enjoyed the tournament lunches set out by Kieth. He was a true gentleman, a great family man and a model citizen. Whenever I hear his name it will bring back many good memories.

Our sincere condolences to the Connolly family. We spent so many great days at ballparks over the years with the entire family & Keith's picnic "trunk" was enjoyed by all! Some really memorable Brew Jay parties were hosted by Keith & Joan & the music was always great! He will be truly missed & remembered by so many whose lives he has touched. Larry & Sharon Repath & family
