  2. Dearest Uncle Keith, you always said an orange a day was the key to good health and longevity. I dare say we will all be buying oranges a little bit more often.
    No Christmas or trip back to Stawell will ever be the same. You were always on our visit list. You were always at our Christmas table for lunch. You’d bring in your neatly wrapped roses chocolates without fail and your hand writing was magnificent- a dying art in this modern world now. You could hold a great conversation about world news or the stock market right till the end and it was admired by everyone who spent time with you.

  3. Always a pleasure to be around. We will miss you Uncle Keith and your beautiful writen letters. Love always Marissa, Steven, Marco and Sofia xo

  13. Uncle Keith has been a part of our family holidays my whole life. This is the reality of living interstate and mostly apart from your extended family. We have been comforted knowing that Keith, in his later years, has had support and assistance from our much loved Stawell family. Thank you.
    In recent years, he has been our link to my nan and pop and his generation, and we will miss visiting him. He was a great conversationalist, always interested in what was happening in our lives and the world at large.
    RIP Uncle Keith
