It is with great sadness that the Directors and staff at Harrison & Hetherington, Newtown St Boswells have to announce the recent passing of Keith Clark. Employed as an Assistant Head Yardman, Keith worked for originally John Swan and latterly H&H since 1986 until his death on Sunday 31st March this year.
Keith had worked at the mart for over 33 years, originally clerking and undertaking administration duties in the office and latterly as Yardman although still carrying out administrative tasks such as booking in sheep on sale days.
Those that knew Keith would know that he was always the life and soul of the yard and offices at St Boswells Mart. He was a genuine ‘all-rounder’ and was accomplished in all the roles he undertook. He always took the time to help out and was always chatty. He will be sorely missed by colleagues and customers.
Keith leaves a widow, Tracey, and two children Graham and Emma and our thoughts and condolences go to them.
The funeral service will be held at Melrose Crematorium at 4.00pm on Thursday 11th April (tomorrow) and all are welcome.
Keith’s colleagues have arranged a collection for his family; if you’d like to contribute please leave your donation in the mart offices at either Newtown St Boswells or Wooler. Thank you.
