Paul Spivey

Fond memories of a very special man, who taught me great moral values, I have used throughout my life, forever greatful RIP Keith

Trudy & Amy Maclean

Us stepping into your ring (gym) when we did, was what can we say "exciting, wonderful, and great memories that we will never forget". You taught Amy how to box and said some kind words after her first fight, a fight that even I couldn't watch (only from the toilets lol). You inspired kids from every walk of life, and we are so glad that we met you. No longer in our life to share but in our hearts you'll always be there. RIP Keith

Sarah & Michael Smith

One of life's true gents, you taught Michael so much along with all the other youngsters who passed through your door. The world has lost an absolute diamond. Rest in peace Keith in our hearts forever
