On Wednesday, April 15, 2020, Gregory Keane, loving partner of Donna Dombrowski and adoring father to Julia and Margaret Keane, all of Collinsville, CT passed away at the age of 62 after a courageous battle with ALS.

Greg “Keano” was born February 6, 1958 in Hartford, CT to James and Nancy (Paine) Keane. He was a 1976 Graduate of Canton High School, where he was an outstanding athlete. He led an adventurous life after college, traveling across the country with friends, living in Jackson Hole and continuing his travels to California and Hawaii.

Greg was blessed with an angelic voice, and during the Canton Benefits production of Pippin he met his friend and former wife Patricia (Symonds) Keane. When they married, he became the stepfather of Ryan Miner and Aubrey (Miner) Caulfield, and soon after they added Julia and Margaret to the family.

Greg worked at Cas-Kel manufacturing, Ensign Bickford and Perry Technologies as a Quality Control Inspector throughout his career.

An avid sports fan, he loved his Green Bay Packers and Boston Celtics, and was finally wooed to be a Boston Red Sox fan by his love Donna.

Greg had an amazing ability to tell a great yarn. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his timing for jokes was impeccable.

Greg was predeceased by his mother Nancy (Paine) Keane, survived by his father James Keane, daughters Julia and Margaret, brother Michael and his wife Ann, sister Theresa (Keane) Schrijn, sister Cynthia Keane and her children Aly Carron, Cole Carron and Max Carron, and sister Mary Keane. In addition to his immediate family, Greg leaves behind too many friends, Great Nieces, Aunts, and Cousins to mention.

Burial will be at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday April 22nd at Village Cemetery in Collinsville. A memorial/celebration of life will be held at a later date. Those who wish to view the burial virtually please email [email protected] Social distancing guidelines apply, stay safe.

In lieu of flowers please make donations in Gregory’s name to The ALS Association (, or simply do something nice for someone you love. The Vincent Funeral Home of Canton is caring for the arrangements. Please visit Greg’s “Book of Memories” at for online tributes.

Brothers are like bubble gum. For some strange reason I have been replaying this simile in my mind, day after day, since last Wednesday. Brothers are like bubble gum. They both can be so sweet and wonderful. The next thing you know they're completely annoying and infuriating, stuck on your shoe or worse , in your hair. When we were kids our relationship was a little bit of both. Like most siblings, about 20 percent sweet and 80 percent annoying. Brothers.

Our parents were amazingly patient and loving. Out of all five kids you can probably guess which of us was the wild one.

Growing up with Greg as my big brother had its advantages. He had many friends and was an amazing athlete. I loved watching him on the soccer field and basketball court. He was larger than life from my junior high perspective.

As it turns out we had our children at about the same time and this is what really connected us. We came together because of our beautiful kids. Aly, Julia, Maggie, Cole, and Max. Greg loved them all. Especially that they were so close and still are.

When they were very young we started vacationing together. Camping with 5 young children was completely insane, but it was also wonderful. After a few years the whole family joined in and shared many adventures to the beach, Watch Hill, and Block Island. Greg was like a man possessed until he got his first order of fried scallops which he happily shared with everyone.

We later moved the family vacations to the tiny cottage in Gloucester. There we watched our children change to teens and adults. Each year saying, "We need to get a bigger place". But we never did. It was home away from home. Each summer Greg and, his love, Donna would walk in smiling. He would take a large breath, like the world was lifted from his shoulders, and say, "I live for this week". We all did. We got to forget about the rest of the world and just be us. The "Core".

I believe that Greg was born to be on the water. Breathe easy my brother. Take in that salt air and sail free.

Greg and I were extremely close during a different season of life. I am a Keane acres alum. We lost a good one and my prayers go out to his family. Victor DelBon

Condolences to the entire Keane family on the loss of Gregory. I have many fond memories of growing up together in the early years - playing games in the street in front of the Keane house, and later playing soccer on the Canton High team. - Steven Bouchard
