  7. My memories of Keegan bring a tear to my eye and a smile to my face. Wonderful memories of a man who smiled through the pain and taught us so much about life and the joy of living. Whether it be playing car tag or hanging doughnuts in the wheelchair, we could easily find you in the yard by listening to the laughter of you and your friends. Thankyou for the lessons in life you gave us all Keegs. People like you are the reason I teach.
    Sending my love to Greg and Sue. What wonderful parents you have been. You didn’t ever let Keegan’s health deter him from living. Rest In Peace Keegs. You are a champion.

  8. Keegan, one of the best blokes I have ever known. A mate I was able to trust and have a laugh with. I am grateful for the time I had known Keegan. One of the toughest person I would ever know. He was the type that would care about every one as he was the type to put a smile on your face and cheers you up even if you were feeling angry upset. Words cannot explain how tough and happy he was. He was just so grateful to have the support of his friends but also and most importantly his family. Rest in Peace mate. Won’t forget you.

  13. Sincere condolences Sue and Greg on the loss of your wonderful yong man who brought joy with him wherever he went. He was clever and insightful in class with his unique understanding of life, challenging us all to think about the world from a different angle. The days Keegs was at school were always more fun ( we’ll never forget the wheelies) and we and our kids are all better for having known him. What a great friend to all his mates!

  22. Susan and Greg the loss of your wonderful and kind and funny son is felt a half a world away. We love Keegan. Being around him made us better people. All these years his phonecalls brought us so much joy. He was an amazing and strong man, raised by equally amazing and strong parents. No one complained … You just got in with it. You surrounded each other with love and support. This is the thing we remember most about the three of you. Never getting bogged down in the moment but rather just getting on with it. Getting in with all the challenges placed in front of you. You all inspire us. Keegan’s loss is deeply felt because he leaves such a strong impression on those who knows him. He was loved … And so are you both. We wish we could be there to embrace you both and look in your eyes to tell you how much we love you and Keegan. Your loving cousin.

  23. Susan & Greg, we are so sorry for the loss of Keegan, you have been wonderful & devoted parents. Keegan’s life would not have been the same without your love & care. We have fond memories of catching up, when you drove all the way to the Gold Coast so Keegan could enjoy Schoolies with his mates. We are thinking of you at this sad time. Your loving Cousin Vicki, Mal & Family x

  24. Dear Sue and Greg
    I’ll always remember Keegan and his cheeky little grin, even as an infant. His smile was certainly infectious, I loved seeing you all when you would come into Target shopping.
    Years on and our children attended school together, and that cheeky face still remained, he taught so many about life and living, he had a wonderful group of friends. He will be sadly missed, but remembered forever.
    Rest easy Keegan

    We are so deeply sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy Keegan. He may not remember us as he was still so young before we moved away from Beeac but I still picture his gorgeous and infectious smile every time my sister Melissa and I would come to play.
