John Keith Davies

I have just read, in the 'Obituaries' section of the Keighley News that a John Keith Davies has died.

From memory, I believe that his father was called Leslie, which would add-up, as would his age (66).

Does anyone know if this is 'JAKE' who used to live on Moorlands Avenue, Bogthorn, before he went to Brighton University (as it was in 1966)?

Hope that someone else remembers 'Jake'.
