      Sorry for the late reply but only just seen the message, I am never on this site now since they altered it, I cannot find anything.............Keith was my cousin, his mum and my mum were sisters.....Came from Hucknall .....They moved to Clifton but hit hard times, got behind with the rent and were evicted to Blackstone Street, was demolished and they went to Bestwood Estate,  parent's spilt up for a while, his dad was an alcoholic, the  reunited and moved to a Flat on Canning Circus.......Keith married young (aged 17) to a girl called Christine whilst they lived at Bestwood Estate, he had 3 daughters and lived at Lenton Abbey.....they both worked for Boots in Beeston, sadly their middle daughter died in her teens, the grief broke the marriage up........Keith lived in the Victoria Centre Flats, got depressed, drank heavily he nearly died.......He got ill later, was immobile and lived near Leicester in a complex......I saw him at his brother Gary's 50th birthday party December 2015..........He sadly passed away peacefully in his sleep in 2016.........His daughter Julie Pickles is on Facebook and so are his brother's Gary and Roy Beavan, I am as well.......Regards Lynn Taylor...
