Familiar industry character Keith Cann-Evans passed away on Thursday September 25th at the age of 79 following a short illness.

The former Hunter Grinders owner and managing director also had a successful career in the packaging industry – but it was through Hunters that many in the turf care industry will have known him.

Charmian Robson, who worked on the PR and marketing for Hunter Grinders, said: “He was a lovely, generous man and we had a good working relationship and friendship over the years.”

Keith lived in Whickham, near Newcastle and combined his passion for golf and travel through his work. After retiring he spent much of his time travelling to and from Australia and New Zealand where his children had emigrated.

He leaves a widow Janet, two children and four grandchildren. Said Charmian: “Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.”

The funeral has been arranged for 7th October at 11.00 am at Mountsett  Crematorium , Dipton. Co Durham.
