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.

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
