News of the sudden and unexpected death of Brian McKehon started to circulate around the local cricket grounds on Saturday afternoon after suffering a massive bleed on the brain in Withybush Hospital.

After moving to Pentlepoir in 2009, Brian soon became an enthusiastic member of the Saundersfoot Bowling Club and enjoyed many years of competitive bowling, winning a few club competitions along the way which gained him entries on the club’s Roll of Honour.

The highlight of his bowling days came when as ‘underdogs’ he and Stew Howe beat John Baggott and Pat Currie in the Senior Pairs final at Whitland to qualify for the Welsh National Bowling Finals at Llandrindod Wells in 2012.

Although defeated in the first round, it remained one of the proudest moments of his life.

Brian’s bowling days came to an end so that he could spend more time with his wife Susan, accompanying her around the many sporting venues and supporting her by taking his own sporting images.

Susan would remark that it was always so much easier to sort Brian’s images for the local press on a Saturday night because whereas she would take in the region of 1,000 to 2,000 images, Brian would come home with a mere 300 or so and always have managed to capture a brilliant image from each venue!

Along with his photography, together with Susan, he threw himself into fundraising for various causes, both local and national and could often be found with a collecting bucket in his hand in the various lobbies of the local supermarkets.

He was a tireless supporter of all local sport and will be greatly missed not only by his devoted and beloved wife Susan, but all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
