Death Calls For Thomas F. Keating
Thomas Francis Keating, of Novato, brother of Sheriff J. J. Keating, passed away early Tuesday morning from pneumonia, following an attack of influenza.
The death of “Tom” Keating, as he was familiarly known to hundreds of Marin county people, was a cause of sorrow to many hearts. He had spent most of his life in this county and his friends were countless. About a year ago he accepted an appointment as postmaster of Novato, but recently resigned to enter another business. Prior to accepting the Novato appointment, he was in the drayage business in San Francisco with his brother, Daniel Keating.
The funeral services were held privately, under the direction of F. E. Sawyer. He is survived by his widow and daughter Francis, Sheriff Keating, Daniel and George Keating, brothers, and Mrs. J. W. Ford, a sister, of Santa Rosa.
