Crossed the Bar - Ronnie Keir

28th March 2018, 16:56
It is with deep regret that I inform you that my old colleague, shipmate and friend Ronnie Keir died on Monday after a long illness.
During his career Ronnie worked for Denholms, Swedish Caledonia, Northern Marine, Stena Offshore and latterly with Cunard, where he sailed as Chief Engineer on the Queen Elizabeth 2, Queen Victoria and the Queen Mary 2 .

The funeral will be held at Clydebank (Dalnottar) Crematorium, Mountblow Road, Clydebank G81 4SL on Monday 9th April at 1pm for all those that wish to attend.
