It is with the heaviest of hearts that we pass on the news of the death of Keith McKenzie, truly a giant in the veterans world. Keith, a former paratrooper and fire fighter, was the founder of Sadaya, a charity that took veterans on mindfulness retreats, and the Veterans Community Cafe in Edinburgh. He never let up in his mission to help others and to improve the lot of veterans. A man of great compassion, humanity and integrity, and a man of great faith, having found Buddhism. He passed away yesterday, on Armistice Day, at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh after an incredibly courageous battle with Covid.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Stella, his sons Cian and Roan, and all his family and his many friends.
Rest in Peace Keith
