Tribute to Roger Keenan

Community Network and its current and past trustees were deeply saddened to learn of the death on 28th December 2013 of Roger Keenan.  Roger served as a highly-valued trustee of the charity between 2000 and 2010.  He was the first trustee to provide an in-depth technical awareness on the Board, in combination with an acute commercial sense – both so vital to the organisation.  It was his early success in personally building a very successful telephony-related business which led us to approach him about trusteeship.  He was a very great asset to Community Network.

His fellow trustees recall him as full of energy, ideas and enthusiasm – such a live wire, disseminating his energy in a wide arc.  His practical intelligence and his ability to see new angles on challenging situations for the charity were invaluable.  And his generosity of spirit, loyalty and good companionship were hallmarks of the friend and true colleague that he was to all of us.
