William J. McKeown, Jr. was a devoted husband and father of six. He was a smart and successful business owner and a well-loved figure in his community. After almost 40 years of building the family business with his wife Margaret and his six children – Peggy, Phyllis, Bill, Charlie, Joe and Maureen – he began forgetting everyday details, he was driving erratically and displaying abnormal behavior. While changes occur naturally with age, the rapid increase in this behavior left our family believing that something was terribly wrong. As it turns out, it was. William was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease with no hope for a cure and the family was left to wonder how to cope.
