Keith John Gilroy

Keith Gilroy, age 38, of Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood and formerly of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, passed away unexpectedly May 3, 2021. Loving father of Brayden. Cherished son of Susan. Dearest brother of Nichole, brother in law to Danny. Dearest uncle of Gabriel. Fond friend of many.

Keith had a lifetime passion of all auto-motives and excelled in every department in his professional field. His love of cooking was not far behind.

He was most tenacious sharing his knowledge of the sport of football with his family and friends. Whether you needed to know the stats of any football league or team, or just wanted to know when the next Penn State or Steelers game was on, just ask our dear Keith, he'd be happy to let you know.

He's left us too soon and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Arrangements entrusted to Chicagoland Cremation Options of Schiller Park, Illinois.


Tom and Jerry I would say! You two lit up the room together. The music you both played. The sandwiches you made were out of this world. When ever in doubt you would try to find an answer. I miss your laughter. Fly high and rest in peace I promise you I will also look after her. You sassy pants you. Were all her together.. Bruce, Beth, Rhonda, and your 💘. We all miss you.. BREE
