John Keene : 1927 – 2017

It is with sadness that we learn of the passing of our friend and EFF club Life Member, John Keene, after six months of poor health. A passionate trout and salmon fisherman, he would often be seen travelling from his home at Cock Green to his beloved Leez Lakes to enjoy some summer evening sport. A cheerful, humorous soul, John was ever-willing to assist newcomers discover the joys, or to discuss any aspects, of the gentle art of fly-fishing.

Anglers who knew John are cordially invited by his family to attend a Thanksgiving Service held at 14:00 on Monday April 10 at Felsted Parish Church, followed by refreshments afterwards at the adjacent Smylie Hall. Donations to John’s chosen charity, the RNLI, may be made through the following link.
