  1. Keith was a much loved and respected brother -in – law and uncle to many. He will be sadly missed for his humour, wise words, ,kindness and his ability to make everyone feel special. Rest in peace Keith.

  2. You will be sorely missed, Uncle Keith.
    A true legend with an amazing legacy of Houldsworths (Batesons & Wilsons) that you leave behind.
    You’re defining character will never be forgotten. Your booming laugh was always a warm sound along with your sense of humour and readiness to make a joke or comment. You always managed to go out of your way and talk to me even when there were loads of people around – which was normally the case at Grandmas and Pops, and even at your house.
    May you rest in peace, and be surrounded by loved ones and cigars!
    All our love,
    Damian, Mandy, and Bump
