Vale Keith Ronald Blackett
1945 – 2017
Keith passed away peacefully at home in the care of his loving wife Michelle and family after a courageous battle with cancer. He was a highly respected ex-member of the NSW Police Force, an accomplished fullback with the Manly Warringah District Rugby League Club during the 1970s, where he acquired the distinction of being the 196th First Grade player for the Club and he will be dearly missed by all of his community friends in and out of the sporting arena.
Keith will be sadly missed by Michelle, his sons and daughters Tim, Lara, Kate and their partners Kerri, Luke and Ben, his parents Winifred and Ronald (dec) plus members of his extended family.
A funeral service will be held on Wednesday 8 February, 2017 at 11:30AM at St. Marys Church, Whistler Street, Manly and all are invited to attend the service. No flowers by request, donations can be made to the Prostate Cancer Research.
May he rest in peace.
