Obituary

Calais – Larry James McKeown, 65, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Larry was born in St. Stephen, NB on January 31, 1955, son of Irving and Berla (Reynolds) McKeown.

Shortly after graduating from Calais Memorial High School, Class of 1973, Larry started working at Georgia Pacific, initially in the grinding room, and eventually as a lab technician, a position he held throughout his career. Larry was still employed with Woodland Pulp but in 2018 had to take a leave due to health issues. Although he was proud of his long-time employment of over 45 years, his true love in life was his wife and best friend, Nancy. On April 10, 1976, he married his childhood friend, Nancy Hume, the start of a wonderful life together.

Larry was a member of St. Croix Country Club, St. Croix Bowling Club, Spednic Club, United Steel Workers Union #27, and the Quarter Century Club. He enjoyed golfing but was an avid sports fan, especially the local high school sports. Larry loved attending the local games to support the area youth, whether it was home or away.

Larry was predeceased by his father, Irving McKeown. Surviving are his loving wife and best friend, Nancy McKeown; his mother, Berla McKeown of Calais; three children, Crystal Gallina and husband Glenn of Calais, Katie McKeown of Calais, and Scott McKeown and wife Alex of Carmel; two grandchildren whom he loved dearly, Derek Myers of Calais and Riley McKeown of Carmel; three sisters, Evelyn Broncato of CA, Carlene Gaddas and husband Frank of St. Stephen, NB, and Judy Davis and husband Don of VA; his brother Stanley McKeown of Calais; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Sylvia and Danny Estey of Zealand, NB, Andrea and Dwayne McCaffrey of St. Stephen, NB, and Paul and Dawn Hume of Las Vegas, NV; and many nieces and nephews.

In keeping with Larry’s wishes, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations in Larry’s memory may be made to the Calais Athletic Boosters, c/o Randy Morrison, 34 Blue Devil Hill, Calais, ME 04619. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.

So sorry to hear of Larry's passing. My condolences certainly go out to Nancy and his family for his loss. I was so thrilled to visit with him when our paths crossed a few years ago while I was visiting Terry and he came by after having done some work at his cottage ... I really miss those days when we were kids and we told ghost stories in the McKeown's barn while our parents were visiting and playing cards... My, how quickly our lives drifted apart at the onset of adulthood and the raising of our individual families...My heart goes out to you all during this difficult time. All the best to you in the coming days. --Steve Reynolds--
