The Very Reverend
Keith Jukes
Dean of Ripon

We are saddened and shocked at the sudden death of our Dean, Keith Jukes, who died at midday on 21st May 2013. Our love and sympathy go out to his wife Suzanne and all the family.

Keith’s death is particularly poignant for us because for many years he was Chairman of the Friends, a post he fulfilled with enthusiasm and wisdom until 2012, when pressure of work forced him to relinquish the Chairmanship.

Keith’s outstanding quality was his great depth of faith and commitment to the Christian life and mission. He and Suzanne were a sturdy couple, facing an increasing number of challenged ove the years, both professional and personal.

We give thank for Dean Keith’s ministry here and pray for all those affected by this tragic loss.

There will be a spoken Requiem in the Cathedral at 9am on Wednesday, 22nd May.
