KEVAN WAS LOVELY MAN AND FRIEND TO ALL
A very sad day today for the family and many friends of Kevan Royle who died after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His funeral at Vale Royal Crematorium reflected the regard and affection in which he was held not only in Goostrey where he lived with his wife, Sylvia, and inseparable soul mate of 54 years but among all areas of his personal and business life with 200 mourners seated and dozens more standing for the service and celebration of his life. Kevan, 77, was an engineer by profession and locally in Holmes Chapel formerly owned a business producing aerosols before dedicating an entrepreneurial flair to building and restoring and upscaling properties, including his home in Brookfield Crescent, and a project in Nantwich that won him official recognition and accolades.The service included his son-in-law Nigel Llewellyn describing many of Kevan's attributes, his kindness, warmth, his love of friendships in the Crown and for his village. "He was part of the DNA of Goostrey... and a lovely man..."
