Tony O' Keefe passes away following surgery complications

6 posts in this topic

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing away of fellow angler and friend, Tony O' Keefe, from Morris, MN. Many knew Tony as an avid outdoorsmen who loved to hunt and fish, and who competed for many years on the Minnesota Walleye Trail and the past five years, at the Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic.

I received a phone call this morning stating that Tony had passed away last night following complications during surgery performed earlier this week. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his loved ones. We will miss you Tony.

Funeral services are expected to be held next Tuesday. I will post a time and location once I learn more.

My prayers go out to the family. Tony was a great guy I will miss competing with him in tournaments and just bsing with him. I remember one fall classic we both were sitting in our boats waiting to take off. Tony asked me if I was on fish I gave him a nod then I asked him the nod back. We took off and we both were at the same spot never saw him prefishing the spot he never saw me prefishing the spot. We both caught a fish right away and started laughing. We will miss you Tony.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
