Businessman who helped so many
A BUSINESSMAN who changed lives for the better died on Sunday April 12 just a month after celebrating his golden wedding anniversary.
Keith Egleton died, aged 78, after being diagnosed with a rare and inoperable form of thyroid cancer at Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow.
He leaves his loving wife Sue, with whom he celebrated their 50th anniversary on March 6, and two sons, Simon and Martin.
Keith was a keen businessman, who owned a hair salon on Yeading Lane, Hayes, called ‘Keith’s Fashions in Hair’ after working at sea on P&O cruise liners.
He also ran a hypnotherapy business from home and saw over 3,000 clients in 25 years.
Sue Egleton, Keith’s wife said: “In that time he helped so many people and changed their life for the better.
“The care Keith received at Northwick Park Hospital was second to none.
“They were fantastic.”
Keith was known locally by many and had several hobbies and interests. He enjoyed sailing, played golf at Harefield Golf Club, took daily walks, sold books as a hobby and was a member of the Uxbridge 41 club.
Mrs Egleton said: “We loved to go on cruises together. The last one we went on was to the Far East and it was magnificent.”
The funeral will be held on Thursday May 7, 2pm, at St. Margaret’s Church in Uxbridge. Keith requested that
absolutely all those who attend should wear bright colours.
The family request that there be no flowers, but instead any donations in memory of Keith should be given to Macmillan Cancer Support, C/o Walding and Son, 63 High Street, Uxbridge.
Sue Egleton would like to thank everyone who has sent cards and wishes of condolence for their kind thoughts.
