Keith Hob­son

Fi­nal good­byes take many forms and at the me­mo­rial ser­vice for Keith Hob­son it was the empty cof­fin in the room which stirred the mem­o­ries and light­ened the spir­its of those who came to re­mem­ber a lar­rikin whose life was well lived.

Keith had made his own cof­fin and even though it was lined with im­ages and snap shots from his life he was des­tined for a more giv­ing end. To quote In­grid, his daugh­ter, “Dad’s mor­bid sense of hu­mour was the or­der of the day. Even af­ter he's gone his self made cof­fin (which we no longer need) had all us of us laugh­ing. He had do­nated his body to science at Syd­ney Univer­sity. So dad, en­joy Uni life for the first time in your life.”
