My Uncle Keith passed away Christmas night, after struggling with his health this year, and spending months in hospital. This is Keith a few years ago, when he was still well (on the right):
Keith never had use of his legs but lived a full and largely unhindered life in his wheelchair or crutches; he was a huge part of our family life growing up, as my Mum had to work many jobs to make ends meet bringing up four children alone, and Keith was a regular babysitter for us.
Our summer holidays also were spent with my Mums family including Keith, and there are many memories from those days, including the famous “wheel fell off” incident during a south coast summer.
Keith also introduced me to electronics, encouraging me to learn more and being involved in the first microcomputer kit I ever built – so I think he had a great responsibility for the life I have today!
Thank you for everything, Keith …
