Keefe, Michael Thomas "Tom", age 61, of Williams Point, Antigonish County, passed away on November 21, 2022, after a courageous fight with cancer in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Canso, he was a son of the late Clarence Thomas and Theresa Kathleen (Boudreau) Keefe.

A caring, generous man with a big smile, Tom was the type of person who wore his heart on his sleeve. He knew how to make people laugh and was always quick with a joke even if it was at his own expense.  Tom met the love of his life, Cindy, in high school, and they spent the next 45 years raising 3 beautiful sons whilst creating wonderful memories.  A loving husband and awesome father, he adored his grandchildren and truly savoured every moment spent with them. Tom held a special place in his heart for nieces Renee and Lauren and thought of them as daughters. While Tom worked for many years in different retail stores, it was when he became a heavy equipment operator that he truly found his passion.  Tom was also an avid sports fan (Habs), and very competitive in nature no matter the game; but he couldn’t hide his displeasure when losing to Cindy in cards.  

He is survived by his wife, Cindy (Haines); children, Merle (Laura), Clydesdale; Michael (Kelly), Halifax; Steven, Williams Point; grandchildren, Rory and Rosa; special nieces, Lauren and Renee; siblings, Mary (Kevin) Zinck; Eddie (April); Gerald (Jenny); Agnes Keefe (Dennis George); Toby (Donald) George; and Juanita Keefe; brothers-and-sisters-in-law, Harold (Genesta), Georgina (Gordon) Hughes, Mary Jean (François) Rochon, Lois Richard (Christian), Alfred, Sally, Danny (Debbie), Kay, and Kim (Allan) Baillie; and many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by his brother, Merle; sister, April; mother-and-father-in-law, Rose and John Haines; sisters-in-law, Lorraine Mooring and Karen Haines; and brothers-in-law, Carl Mooring and Carmen Haines.

Cremation has taken place.  Visitation will be held Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish.  Funeral Mass will be held Monday at 11:00am in St. Ninian Cathedral, Antigonish, with Reverend Daniel MacLennan presiding.  Burial in the parish cemetery.

In Memoriam, donations to St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation appreciated. 

Special thanks to Dr. Eckhart, Dr. MacCormick, Dr. Phillip Cooper, and the staff of the Oncology, Progressive Care, and Palliative Care Units at St. Martha’s Hospital for their wonderful care.
