Busi­ness­man who helped so many

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
