Keith Jukes, Dean of Ripon Cathedral, Died this afternoon in Harrogate District Hospital. He announced on Sunday that he was suffering from a cancerous growth in the stomach.
Keith was one of the more Christian Leaders in the Diocise, who perservered against a Church who wanted to combine several Diocise and depose Ripon as Cathedral, and a Bishop who was way to permissive of other faiths, to the extent of letting them pray to their own gods inside a Christian service (something I witnessed myself)
He was 59 years old and much loved, he leaves behind a Wife and two children
