Sad news for you today I’m afraid. Kev Walsh, sadly passed away earlier this afternoon after a short battle with cancer. Kev was best known as former Lambretta Club of Great Britain Chairman, he was still a BSRA committee member and chaired the annual ‘Number Ones’ meeting, He was also a parts fair organiser and all-round nice chap.
On behalf of us all at ScooterLab, we’d just like to pass on our sincere condolences to the Walsh family and many, many friends from the scooter world. Kev has played a huge part in the classic scooter scene for decades and will be missed by all who knew him. Respect.
A few words by Norrie Kerr
Today we have lost a legend. My good friend Kev Walsh has passed away. Similar to when Mike Karslake passed away, Janet and I are full of sadness. We were to visit Kev with all his friends on Sunday coming. We knew the script had been written, and Kev told us the outcome would be terminal, but still the shock is hard to take.
From the late 60s till today, we were buddies, and I loved him like someone who admired another should. He was very special to us. From his ‘Walsh Beat’ ‘articles in Scooter & Scooterist all those years ago, he always stood proud of what he had achieved. He was the true epitome of the term ‘A legend’. God Bless you pal. R.I.P Kev.
Janet & Norrie Kerr
