Probably not the correct place for this but as photography related I thought a good starting point.

For those members who hold his photographs in their collections it may be of interest that Keith passed away peacefully in his sleep last November at 88 years of age.

A real gentleman, well known for his ship photography and in more recent time for his paintings and who will be sadly missed by family, friends and customers.

Regards
Bill

First met him in 1970 on the docks at Liverpool and on many occasions thereafter arranged to meet at various ports as we both travelled around on business and taking advantage to pursue our hobby. Over the years we became close friends, and regularly exchanged many negatives.
