We write this with great sadness and disbelief over the unimaginable loss of our dear friend and former boss Keith. Keith was taken from us all unexpectedly on Monday 26th November at just 73 years old and as we write this we still cannot quite believe that Keith is no longer with us.
A father, grandfather, partner, boss, colleague and friend he was treasured by all of us who knew him, and we were all privileged to have had him touch our lives.
Keith had an ability to obtain instant respect, not because of who he was or his standing in society but instead because of the way he treated you. It did not matter who you were, where you were from, or your age, you were treated with a warmth and respect and this is most certainly why everyone who encountered Keith warmed to him immediately. Keith was a true gentleman, a man whose door was always open and someone you could rely upon whenever you needed him.
Keith’s loss will no doubt bring shock across the local construction, cricketing and football worlds along with many other communities that Keith was at the heart of. We cannot begin to imagine the sadness and loss Keith’s family must be feeling at this time, but they must be comforted and so proud in the knowledge that Keith was loved and respected by everyone who knew him.
To us, Keith was more than just a boss, he was a true friend, a friend that we cannot speak highly enough of and will be missed terribly.
All our thoughts now should be with Hazel and Keith’s family at such a difficult time.
We have lost a great man, rest in peace Keith.
