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.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
