Keith last saw Ken at the EMT away-day at Warwick University. Ken was clearly unwell but told Keith about his trip to South Africa and wanted to take a full part in the discussions. He was so short of breath that Keith had to help him up the stairs to the conference room after lunch.
Ken had to be persuaded to to be taken home from where he was taken to hospital. It was typical of this dedicated public servant that he put his responsibilities before his own health.
Ken will be missed on so many levels by so many people. Truly a hard act to follow.
Our condolences to Shirley and their family.
