The Mentalist Keith O'Brien episode Dedication

In the fourth season episode of The Mentalist, ep No. 22, titled “So Long, and Thanks for All the Red Snapper,” it closes out with a dedication splash screen saying “In Loving Memory or Keith O’Brien.

Keith O’Brien was a driver that worked with the production of The Mentalist. He had lost a battle with cancer, and the show paid tribute to him with the closing homage, to one of their own. I saw reference to the tribute, but I dug until I found a source of info on his passing.

Ashley Gable, a writer who contributed to 12 episodes of The Mentalist, had replied to some online inquiries about the dedication and had this to say about Keith:

“Keith was a Teamster (driver) on the show. A man with a beautiful voice & an even better smile, he died of cancer during 422 prep.”

She further added:

“we thought an episode about sad goodbyes would be the perfect one to dedicate to Keith. He will be missed. Lovely man. “

No one should ever have to suffer through such an ugly experience as cancer. Ever. I don’t care who you are. (I have some contribution links in the sidebar of my site, because like I say, all it takes is $1. For example, if 5 million people watched a fund raiser telethon in the battle against cancer, and everyone who watched only contributed $1, well, as you can see, this is why it would add up.)

Our thoughts go out to Mr. O’Brien’s friends and family.
