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

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
