Keith Walker, South Staffs Section

walker1
It is with regret that we have to announce the passing of Keith Walker….. Keith was in every sense an NACC stalwart, having joined the club in its infancy, and being an enthusiast in machine restoration in all its aspects. He was also a great believer in encouraging the social side of things, and the picture shows him being presented with a commemorative tankard at our Bangers and Mash night, four years ago. His innovation of using yellow dots to mark out our “Route 66” directions was inspirational at the time, and caused great amusement on occasions where riders went astray, or read old horse droppings as directions! He also instigated our regular midweek local runs…known as “Walkers Wednesday Weekly Wrinkly Wruns” which we did for a long while, until his health deteriorated to the point where he felt he could no longer ride safely. He will be very much missed, and our deepest sympathy goes to his family and Ann, his partner for many years. Keith’s funeral will be held at Bushbury Crematorium, Underhill Lane, Wolverhampton WV10 8NS, at 13.45 on Monday 9th April.
