Louis O'Keefe Memorial Fund

On Monday, January 16, 2017, Louis O'Keefe went to work just like he did most other days. No one thought that this would be the last day they would ever see him alive again. In a truly heroic and unselfish fashion, Lou passed away while trying to aid a worker who had previously made the descent into a narrow manhole, not knowing the demon that awaited them. Lou and two other workers were overcome by toxic fumes and passed away while Firefighter Leo Marino is fighting for his life in a coma. Lou lost his life just like he lived it, caring for, and helping others. Now his family needs your help in giving Lou a final farewell and a decent send off. Whether it's a dollar or a thousand dollars, your donation will be much appreciated and help out a family who has had their share of loss in the past few years.  
Thank you for your support and please pass this on to a friend.
