Cherished father of Kevin McKeown. Proud grandfather of Jonathan and Melanie McKeown. Special brother of Ron McKeown. Thomas will also be sadly missed by his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends, especially his colleagues from Babcock & Wilcox. Thomas was a soccer referee in Cambridge/Ayr for over 45 years, he also selflessly dedicated time with the Canadian Cancer Society as a volunteer. He loved camping and spending time with his beloved family. He was a fighter, beating prostate and bladder cancer both of which he battled for the past 20 years. At Thomas’ request, cremation has taken place. There will be no public visitation or funeral service. As an expression of sympathy, donations made to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be greatly appreciated by the family.
