Just been asked by Keith's brother to let everyone know Keith has passed away.

As a regular contributor on this site and a moderator Keith will be sadly missed by all. No doubt he will be entertaining them all upstairs with his own particular brand of humour.

I know all members will want to pass on our deepest sympathy to his family.

I am truly, truly shocked and saddened to hear this. I first got to know Keith many years ago when we both frequented the Northumberland Arms; a kind, pleasant, friendly and gentle soul who always had a story to tell and enjoyed a laugh, I was always happy to be in his company. To find him again, on here, after losing touch was a pleasure; I shall miss him, genuinely. Very, very sad news.

Such sad news! We've had many a good laugh here thanks to Keith's sense of humour and his wonderful competitions. However, on a more serious note I have to thank Keith for sharing his interest in astronomy with us, and with such enthusiasm that even I can sometimes .find myself star gazing . A very sad loss indeed! Warm condolences to the family.

I was absolutely floored when Foxy messaged me and told me of Keith's passing. I have known the Lockey lads since our Whitley school days. My sincere condolences to all the family Alan. I have told Dave Hunter and he will tell Jim, I know you were all good friends at one time .

I am in shock, I was supposed to meet Keith for a chat a few months ago but lost my mam, he sent me a lovely message, I was going to ring him to arrange something over easter. Keith was a lovely gentle man, and had a great sense of humour. My thoughts are with his family, so sorry Alan. RIP Keith.

I was really upset to hear the devastating news. Keith was a staunch supporter of this community project, and will be sorely missed. My commiserations to his family.  There has been a suggestion that we need to do something positive to keep his memory alive, and I'm fully in accord.

I too am saddened by Keith's passing.  We shared an interest in astronomy and when he got his telescope I urged him, on here, to get across to Keilder to enjoy the local 'dark sky';  I hope he did.

 

Ditto Vic's remarks about Joe Rooney.

Keith's funeral is at the Whitley Bay crematorium on Wednesday 1st April, 9am.

 

Forgive me if this is considered inappropriate, but what an entirely apt day for a man who enjoyed a modicum of tomfoolery! I fear I will not be around on that date, but should I be so will do my utmost to be there.

Once again everyone, MANY THANKS for your kind wishes. You TRULY are a remarkable crowd, and Keith spoke very highly about each and every one of you. Needless to say, I am struggling very hard to come to terms with Keith's death. Last week was a terrible week for us. It was my mother in laws funeral on Wednesday 18th, then the bombshell with Keith on the 20th. March hasn't been a great month for Liz or myself. HOWEVER, life has to go on for us both, and we have very fond memories of our departed loved ones.

It IS a fitting day for Keith's funeral, April Fools Day. He sure was blessed with a brilliant sense of humour, and I'm very fortunate that I have witnessed it all my life. Let's face it, with a face like his, he NEEDED a sense of humour :-) SORRY BRO, but I had to have the last word. Gonna miss you immensely.

 

Alan

      Northumberland's public health chief has urged residents to follow the new North East lockdown restrictions with coronavirus 'spreading like wildfire' across the county.
      The tougher rules will come into force from midnight on Wednesday, affecting about two million people across Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham, in a bid to stop the soaring number of Covid-19 cases.
      The new measures will mean that people from different households will be banned under law from mixing indoors in any setting, including pubs or restaurants, and will face fines of up to £6,400 for doing so.
      However, it will not be illegal to meet up with friends from another household in a beer garden – though it will be against public health advice to do so.
      Latest figures revealed all seven authority areas in the region have recorded an increase with cases up 79% to 2998 in the week leading to September 25 from 1324 in the previous seven days.
      The number of Covid-19 cases in Northumberland more than doubled to 450 in the same week – the equivalent of 139.6 cases per 100,000 people. This is up from 196 cases (60.8) in the week previous.
