Keith was born in Amarillo, Texas. He grew up in Medford, NJ where he played varsity football and graduated from Lenape High School. He received his bachelor’s degree in business from Rider University in Lawrence Township, NJ.
Keith had a great way of making people laugh and everyone enjoyed his company. His big, bold personality allowed him to be a successful salesman for Scott Paper Co., McShane Enterprises and ultimately formed his own company, Paper-Now.
Keith enjoyed the outdoors. He was an avid golfer and loved to hunt, as well as hike in Valley Forge with his daughter, Meagan. Most recently, Keith found joy in exploring the city and walked for many miles each day.
Keith is predeceased by his father, James C. O’Rourke, and youngest sister, Karen L. O’Rourke. He is survived by his daughter, Meagan G. O’Rourke of Devon, Pa., his mother, Joanne G. Hurd (Irvine) and 2 sisters, Grace Aroha of Santa Fe, NM, and Tracey A. Thomas (James) of Medford, NJ, along with his stepsiblings, Irvine Hurd III (Gwyn) Medford, NJ, Diane Sweeney, Austin TX and Michael Hurd, Sebastopol CA.
He was so loved by his nieces and nephew, Brittany Bruce (Michael), Garrett Hessinger, Meredith Birkhead (Eric) and Caroline Thomas, along with his great nieces Zoey, Lily, Elly and great nephew, Oliver.
His quick wit and loving smile will be missed by all who knew him.
