It brings us great sorrow to hear about the passing of RFS Chaplin Keith King, who had recently retired and was a longtime resident of the mountains.

Keith devoted his entire life to helping so many - especially Blue Mountains RFS members - both on and off the fireground. His friendliness and calmness towards those in need will always be remembered.

Keith's family, brigade members, friends, and all those who had the pleasure of knowing him are in our thoughts and prayers.
