“Kevin was a larger-than-life figure who was full of energy and life," said Jonathan Frisch, AP&G vice president. "As a great sales executive, he was fiercely competitive and goal oriented — no challenge was too great and he would never quit until the job was done. Kevin had many great successes and accomplishments at AP&G/Catchmaster, but mostly we will remember him for making work fun, for his big heart, and for being a great friend. He will be sorely missed. ”

Keane is survived by daughter Faith Keane, age 11, and son Jacob Keane, age 6, as well as two brothers and three sisters.
