from Pastoral Review and Graziers' Record, 16 August 1951

A well known Riverina grazier, Mr. A. S. (Stan) O'Keefe, of Tooma Station, via Albury, and formerly of Yamma Station, Morundah, died at Wagga Wagga on 27th June.

Mr. O'Keefe received his education at Xavier College, Melbourne, and began his pastoral career in 1893 as a jackeroo on Yamma Station, which was then owned by his father. On his father's death in 1904 he became owner of the property and in 1919 he purchased Tooma, where he went to reside in 1940 after selling Yamma. Always a keen stockman Mr. O'Keefe made his hobby the breeding of thoroughbreds and racing them, perhaps the best known of his horses being Bright Steel (imp.), whom he used as a sire in his stud.

Mr. O'Keefe is survived by his widow, three sons and three daughters, two other sons (Fred, and Geoff.) having been killed during the Second World War.
