Kevin’s daughter Georgia has reported that “…as of yesterday, Dad is no longer responsive or can talk. He can however hear, if people were interested to come by I would want them to understand the circumstances fully as it is very confronting to see him this way.
Thank you for getting in touch, it has been so lovely to hear of everyone’s fond memories of dad.
He actually started a Youtube channel only a couple of months ago and that was when he was at his best and not longer after his diagnosis, he was attempting to fit in as many things as possible into his suddenly shortening time frame. It might bring a laugh or impress some of your cohort if you were interested. It is also the most accurate version of dad I can think of. If you would like to share it or were interested in having a look yourself, the name of his channel is Ukelele Trubadour.”
If you open it up you might think you’ve got to the wrong page – but it is definitely Kevin – as we knew him!
Kevin’s daughter Georgia Tompson has advised that he was diagnosed with cancer 12 weeks ago – he was without any symptoms whatsoever. She states that he may have only days left.
The type of cancer is not stated but I am pretty sure it is bowel: Georgia urges “please make sure everyone is getting their regular health checks. So sad to know this could have been avoided with an earlier routine colonoscopy.”
As you will read from Brocky’s letter below, he has some health issues. His journey through treatment is not an easy one and I ask two things of my Classmates on his behalf. Firstly, please exercise a good deal of patience if expecting a reply after emailing him with your thoughts / best wishes as he is not always up to replying. And secondly, please do not post this message from Jeff or any associated discussion to Facebook, either our Facebook site or more generally. Best regards – Rick Davies.
Some of you may have heard a whisper recently along the lines that I have a health issue of some concern, so I thought I had better provide some clarity around it now if only to allay your concerns from not knowing anything at all.
