The Chaplain in Tenerife South, Father Keith Gordon, sadly passed away this afternoon. Bishop David Hamid, Diocese in Europe, said he was grateful to all who were with Fr Keith at the end, and that he was surrounded at the last by his family, parishioners and brother priests who ministered to him. The bishop continued that Fr Keith “faced his cancer with bravery and always with an optimistic good humour. He fought a good fight. We shall all miss him dearly. May God open to him the gates of paradise and grant him peace.”
