ALLEN, Texas — Kevin Keane, VP of Professional Sales at AP&G, died on April 1, at his home in Allen, Texas. He was 53.

Keane joined AP&G in 2004, as district sales manager for the Central, South Central and Southeast U.S. territories, and was promoted to VP of Professional Sales, in 2010.

“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.

A memorial service for Keane will be held on Thursday, April 18 at 11 a.m., at:
