Obituary of Matthew J. McKeon

It is with overwhelming sadness we announce the passing of Matthew J. McKeon.  Matthew passed away unexpectedly at home on Tuesday, May 9, 2023.  He was born in Hartford, CT, on November 5, 1968, and lived in Farmington and then the family later relocated to Glastonbury, CT. 

Matthew was the son of June (Wheeler) McKeon and the late Norbert A. McKeon, Jr.  A graduate of Glastonbury High School, Matthew also attended Bradford College.  Later, he graduated from Manchester Community College, cum laude, with a degree in computer science.  He enjoyed a long and successful career at Pratt and Whitney / Raytheon as a computer specialist. 

Matthew and his daughter Jondle were very involved with Special Olympics and he enjoyed cheering her on when she participated in many of their events of track and bowling.  In addition, he helped Jondle participate in horseback-riding therapy programs.   He truly devoted his life to her.  

Matthew had a unique gift of enjoying life in a cheerful and spirited way.  We always enjoyed his endless entertaining stories at our family gatherings.  Although he will be greatly missed, we will fondly remember him by his ‘joie de vivre’ and have some consolation in that. 

In addition to his mother and step-father, Charles Friedman, Matthew is survived by his beloved daughter, Jondle Joy McKeon, and his brother, Sean M. Wheeler. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, May 13, 2023 at 12:00 noon at Ss.
