Funeral announcement of Southport Legend

R.I.P Keith Redmond

Keith Redmond born 19th June 1952 sadly passed away on the 8th January, surrounded by his close loving family after a 19 month battle against pancreatic cancer complicated by previously diagnosed myeloid leukaemia. Keith fought a brave battle without complaint and remained optimistic and cheerful retaining his sense of humour always helping others when he could. Keith was well known in Southport to many for his sense of humour, infectious laugh and the fact he always did his best to help others. He has run K Redmond plumbing & heating for over 35 years which is now in the safe hands of his son Karl and Nephew Daniel.

An inspiration to his family and everyone he came in touch with. He was an honorary member of Southport Hesketh Round table for many years where he helped fund raise. He could be found on Santa’s sleigh, at Dads and kids camping, stewarding at the Mad Dog run, annual firework display or promoting charity events in order to sell as many tickets as possible.

One of his passions was promoting gas safety in which he had many articles published. He liaised with local MPs and counsellors to ensure housing for the vulnerable was Gas Safe. Another passion was aeroplanes, where at a young age he obtained his glider pilots license.

He was a fun loving family man with a generosity of spirit, loved by many and will be deeply missed by his loving family Wife Catherine, children Vanessa & Karl and grand-children Chloe and Jake, daughter-in-law Joanne and wider family especially nephew Daniel.

Thank you to the many people who have sent condolences, it is comforting to know how well liked he was in the community. His funeral will take place on Friday 29th January at 1.30pm, Lord Street West United Church, Southport, PR8 2BH, followed by burial at Duke Street cemetery.
