Mark Joseph Keefe was born on July 18, 1959 to James and Shirley Keefe in Fairmont, Minnesota. He attended St. John Vianney School through the 8th grade and graduated from Fairmont High School in 1978. He attended Mankato State University where he received his MBA.
Mark married the love of his life, Karen Marie Anderson on June 23, 1984. They originally lived in Zimmerman, MN and later built the home of their dreams in Eden Prairie. Mark worked for Target Corporation, Fingerhut, Donnelley Marketing and finally PrimeNet, where he was the President and CEO. On Feb. 10, 2010 Mark and Karen purchased PrimeNet in Largo, FL and eventually expanded the operations to Shakopee, Minnesota. Mark and Karen have split their time between their homes in Seminole, FL and Eden Prairie MN.
Mark was a loving, generous, kind man with a great sense of humor. He valued hard work, loyalty and, above all else, the love of his family was especially important to him. Mark enjoyed spending time at the beach with family and friends, traveling, cooking, collecting coins, fine wine, clocks and caring for his family.
Mark passed away on March 15, 2018 surrounded by his family at Largo Medical Center, Largo, FL at the age of 58.
Mark will be dearly missed by many.
When you see a beautiful sunset, it is a greeting of love from Mark.
