Ad Astra Ed “Fast Eddie” Keenan ’70 — The below message dated Aug. 16th from Paul Hull ’59 to John Werner ’59 is passed along to all.
We lost another outstanding Fiji brother, Ed Keenan ’70. He grew up in Shelton, a Sigma Tau Fiji, got a PhD in pharmacology, and was Associate Dean Of Medical Education At Oregon Health Sciences University, He had a reputation as a charismatic teacher, and was a great guy. I knew him through the Foundation for Medical Excellence that he headed. He chaired meetings of a group called the Collegium that I have been associated with for about 10 years. We deal with medical education and ethical issues. He died suddenly two days ago. He had been in excellent health, and was a vigorous, active guy. We had a lot of fun reminiscing about our Sigma Tau years,
Not a good year for us here in Oregon, with the loss of John Wilson ‘62, Larry Schneider ‘59, and now Ed Keenan ‘70.
I am really going to miss Ed. He was a really good friend.
The State of Oregon has lost a major authority and leader in healthcare.
