The funeral of a Whitfield man, who was killed on the A2 near Canterbury two weeks ago, will be held in Barham next week.
Keith Hall, 44, who played football for the British Legion in the Deal Sunday League, died after the crash on the A2 at Patrixbourne on April 17.
Mr Hall, an immigration officer for UK Border Agency, lived in Beauxfield, with his wife Paula and two young children. He was described by his football team manager Doug Heaps as “a genuinely lovely lad”.
He will be greatly missed by us, his family and his friends
Mr Heaps had known Mr Hall for over 10 years. He added: “He was there every week. He never moaned, never groaned.”
Mr Hall’s widow released a statement describing him as a “good husband and a special dad”.
She added: “He will be greatly missed by us, his family and his friends.”
Family and friends will say goodbye to him at a funeral service at 1.20pm on May 8 at Barham Crematorium.
Sullivan & Son funeral directors are looking after the arrangements.
The family has requested no flowers, but donations to Kent Air Ambulance can be made via the funeral directors at 12 Beaconsfield Road, Dover, or by telephoning 01304 201322.
