    Our thoughts are with Elva and the family at the passing of their dear husband and father, John. John was always the same courteous, friendly man with a touch of unusual humour. Our happy memories of houseboat cruises, fishing trips and holidays will be with us forever. Rest In Peace John.

    Our deepest condolences to Elva and the Keam family,
    We are sorry to hear of the passing of John, a loving husband and father.
    I have enjoyed when Grant has shared some of his dad’s stories.
    To have been lucky to hear one of Grant and John’s conversations earlier this year, you knew there was the most loving connection in the tone of their voices.
    We send our love, support and the kindest regards,

    Craig, Marta-Eve, Jenson, Ruby.
