Obituary of Martin J. Keane

Martin Jarlath Keane was a long time resident of Forest Hills Gardens. Born in County Galway, Ireland in 1925, he emigrated to America in 1950. He was a self made man who rose from the job of a glazier, becoming a major real estate developer in Astoria and Forest Hills. He built scores of multi family homes and apartments over the course of his sixty plus year career.

He was a loving husband to the late Sarah (Travers)  and was predeceased by his daughter, Roseanne and sons, John, Martin and Joseph. He is survived by his loving daughter, Eileen and son in law James Richardson. He will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren, Richelle Montelione, Melissa Clayton, Katharine and Maura Keane, Travers and Thomas Richardson and four great grandchildren, Devonn, Tyler, Trey,and Tristan.

A quiet dignified man, his family will always be grateful for his unconditional love and generosity.

May he rest in peace
