Andrew James “Jim” Kehoe, III, 78, of Phenix City, AL died at his home on Sunday, June 09, 2024.  

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Father David Hamm at 11:00 AM (EST) on Monday, June 17, 2024 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, Phenix City, AL according to Vance Brooks Funeral Home, Phenix City, AL. Interment with U. S. Airforce Honors will follow in Ft. Mitchell National Cemetery. 

Jim was born February 27, 1946 in N. Tonawanda, NY, son of the late Andrew J. Kehoe, II and Jean L. (Poeller) Kehoe. He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam war. After returning home, he joined AT&T  climbing telephone poles and ultimately retired as a Project Manager after 30 years of service. An avid clay-shooter and hunter, in retirement he managed the Callaway Gardens Gun Club until it closed. At which point he began honing his woodworking skills, producing beautiful pieces for his family and friends. 

He will be forever remembered as a man of integrity, authenticity, and unwavering faith in both God and the New York Yankees.  Jim was an active member of St Patrick Catholic Church, serving in the Knights of Columbus.  Throughout his life, he dedicated himself to ministry including Marriage Encounter, To Be Church Together, prison ministry and mission work in Haiti.

Jim was known for his willingness to help a stranger, family, friends – it didn’t matter, when you needed something he was there to help. A pillar of strength within our family, his protective nature will be deeply missed in our daily lives. Though he no longer walks beside us, his legacy will endure, shaping future generations.

Other than his parents, Andrew J. Kehoe, II and Jean L. Poeller Kehoe, he was preceded in death by a grandson, Timothy John “Jack” Morrison.

Survivors include his wife of 55 years, Joanne (Murray) Kehoe; a son, Andrew J. “AJ” Kehoe, IV and daughter-in-law Brooke; a daughter, Kimberly Morrison and son-in-law Tim; a sister, Kathleen Abramo and brother-in-law Paul; and six grandchildren, Andrew James “Jay” Kehoe, V, Benjamin Cole Kehoe, William Cooper Kehoe, Clara Rose Morrison, James McCrae Morrison, and Leah Chamberlain Morrison; niece Meghan Chambers and her husband Andy and children Meara and Alaina, and niece Danielle Balling and her husband Cody and children Margo and Parker; and so many others who loved him dearly.
