Keith from Kegs and Cpt. Dave's on 10th has passed away

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I report that my dear friend, Keith Rawlinson, has passed away.

Keith was a long-term Playense who owned/operated Kegs bar and Cpt. Dave's on 10th avenue. His wife Mayte owned/operated Bloody Chicas and El Bar. Keith's health had deteriorated in the last year or so, and he'd moved back to England to be near his family.

Mayte has announced a memorial in his honor tomorrow, March 29, at Bad Boys Beach Bar at 2 pm. Bad Boys is on the beach between Calles 2 and 4.

Many of you have likely had the pleasure of meeting Keith--if any of you have photos to share, I would love to see them and I'm sure his family would be comforted somewhat in their grief by seeing how well he was loved.

My own heart is truly broken and I can't yet get my head around the fact that I will never get to see his smiling face anymore. Keith was one of the kindest, most compassionate, and most easygoing people I have ever met and the world seems a bit less wonderful without him in it.

That is so sad....I didn't know him, but I've seen his pictures on PI and everyone always spoke highly of him.....I am sorry for your loss, Heather and others who loved him.

Heard this news sad news before leaving Playa yesterday. Bad Boys will be an appropriate farewell. I think their wedding pictures are posted here somewhere. Sympathy to Myte, family and friends.

I heard about it from another forum. I have met him a few times and always thought good of him. I'm sure he will be missed by many.

I only met Keith once, but that was enough to know what a genuine guy he was. My thoughts and prayers to Mayte, family and friends.

Our deepest condolences to Keith's family and Mayte.
Keith was one of my mentors when I first got here together with Jimmy Brown. I'll bet they are having a beer together right now....
RIP Keith.
Chris and Carrie
