Remembering Keith, a lovely man with a great sense of humour, his late wife Bessie was also a very kind lady. Rest in peace Keith, a long life well lived.

Keith and Bessie were an amazing couple. Rest in love.

Some people leave their mark on your life. While not related, Uncle Keith and Aunty Bessie have always been part of my childhood memories. In tow with Dad Sid and after he had a smoke and catch up with Uncle Lute the next stop was the Hildebrands. I always felt the kindness and love ❤️ of Keith and Bessie. Two early memories are looking at boats through binoculars from the Hildebrand living room and a small statue of an Arab man on the mantelpiece. Even as a young boy (many years ago now) I felt the warmth, good humour and kindness of that wonderful Bluff couple.

An absolutely lovely gentleman with a fine sense of humour and a delightful laugh. It was my pleasure to of known and spent time with him. Heartfelt sympathies to his family.
