Marlborough – William R. Keefe, 82, a former longtime resident of Hudson, died at his residence Tuesday Jan. 18, 2010, surrounded by his loving family. He leaves his wife of 58 years, Patricia A. (Pay) Keefe of Marlborough.

Born and raised in Framingham, son of the late John and Mary (Reedy) Keefe, he attended local schools and was a 1946 graduate of Framingham Academy High School. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy after serving from 1948 to 1952 as a Korean War veteran.

Mr. Keefe was employed by U.S. Natick Army Labs in their Research and Development Department from 1951 to 1985, when he retired.

He was a devoted husband, loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather, and was looking forward to the birth of two additional great-grandchildren. He looked forward to gatherings with his family and especially enjoyed sailing the Cape Cod Islands with his daughter, Colleen, and her husband, Peter. He was a member of Saint Michael’s Parish in Hudson.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his two sons, William Keefe of Townsend and Russell Keefe of Hudson; his three daughters, Mary Smith of Florida, Colleen Bisi of Marlborough, Joanne Carroll of Missouri; 21 grandchildren; and 23 greatgrandchildren. He is also survived by three brothers, three sisters, and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral Mass was celebrated Jan. 22 from Saint Michael’s Church of Hudson, with burial held at the convenience of the family. The Tighe- Hamilton Funeral Home of Hudson assisted with arrangements. Memorial donations may be made to American Cancer Society, 30 Speen St., Framingham, MA 01701.
