Keith Laver

I have been advised that Keith Laver died on the 16th February.

Keith was a Patron and a Past President of the Canadian Rose Society and an internationally known Canadian hybridizer of Miniature roses.

His associates included Sam McGredy, Wilhelm Kordes, Harm Saville and Ludwig Taschner.

He and his wife June were involved with many WFRS conventions, but didn’t make the last two due to his age (in his nineties) and ill health.

I have sent a letter of condolence.
