Roanoke lost its true Renaissance man when Dr. Robert Keeley died Sunday at the age of 92.

Keeley, who co-founded the still-thriving Jefferson Surgical Clinic in 1956, was described by a colleague as a “master surgeon.” He was a patron of the arts; a lover of music and reading; and a man who picked out specific books for dozens of friends and employees every Christmas. He was a man of faith, who served in many roles at Our Lady of Nazareth Catholic Church and who actively supported Roanoke Catholic School.
