American Veteran 01

Alan Thomas Keough

June 5, 1960 ~ November 30, 2020 (age 60)



Alan Thomas Keough age 60, peacefully passed away November 30, 2020 after a long journey of Early Onset Alzheimer’s at the NC State Veterans Home in Black Mountain.  He was loved by all and will be greatly missed. 

Beloved husband of Aleta Keough for over 32 years, father of two amazing sons Adam Keough (Loray) and Alexander Keough.  He is survived by two very precious grandsons Griffin and Faolan Keough.  He is also survived by siblings Roy Keough (Debra), Shaun Keough (Peggy) and Tracey Murray.  He is preceded in death by his parents Daniel and Jane Keough.

Alan spent most of his working career as a self-employed construction contractor, specializing in remodeling.  He loved the challenge of reconstructing run-down homes and making them beautiful.  He was a master craftsman and loved what he did.

He was a great family man and a loving father.  He loved the outdoors but his passion was boating and all water sports which became competitive as the boys grew.  Our family and friends had many lake and ocean adventures together, all so much fun and memories to treasure.

Celebration of Life at Lake James (NC) and Saratoga Lake (NY) to be held at a later safer date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to Memory Care, 100 Far Horizons Lane, Asheville, NC  28803 or online at
