It’s a heartbreaking time for the Keough family.
Matt Keough,64, has died as revealed by his daughter Kara Keough in a post on Instagram late Saturday.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County staple paid tribute to her father in a touching yet heartbreaking post.
“Daddy, please take care of my son. Teach him the circle changeup and how to find forever friends. You’re on grandpa duty in heaven now. Xoxo, Hammerhead,” Kara wrote alongside a slideshow of photos.
This comes only weeks after Kara’s son McCoy Bosworth died during childbirth.
Matt was married to former RHOC star Jeana Keough for 20 years and even after officially separating the couple remained married yet estranged for a number of years.
The couple got married in 1984 and first filed for separation in 2004 but did not officially divorce until more than a decade later in 2019.
They share three children – Kara, 32, Shane, 33, and Colton, 28.
Matt, a former pitcher with the Oakland A’s, was also a heavily featured character in the early seasons of RHOC as he played a pivotal role in his estranged wife Jeana’s storyline during her time on the show.
Shane and Jeana also posted tributes to Matt on Instagram.
Jeana simply shared a photo of Matt during his baseball heyday while Shane wrote a touching post dedicated to his dad alongside several photos from Matt’s life.
“My favorite place was always on your shoulders. It makes me smile knowing McCoy will be there with you; right there on your shoulders. It wasn’t always perfect but I wouldn’t change it for the world. You taught me more than you’ll ever know and I hope that I make you proud. Kick back and enjoy the eternal sunshine. Till I see you again – I love dad,” Shane wrote.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jeana, Kara, Shane, Colton, and the entire Keough family.
