    • Obituary: MR. D. S. KEIGHTLEY
      Mr D. S. Keightley, 66, of Angaston, died yesterday morning after a long illness, and final tributes will be paid with a feeling that he will live on in the many things of community value he so unselfishly helped to create.
      Born in the district, he was allied with Mr Ohlmeyer in his younger days, and then acquired and built up his Angaston business with the unfailing help of Mrs Keightley, formerly Miss Florence Sleader, who devotedly nursed him during his long illness.
      He was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1921, and around that time did splendid work toward establishment of the District Hospital, of which he was chairman at time of the officiol opening in 1921. After 21 years in office, he retired in 1942, and was presented with an illuminated address. The Institute, too, profited by his help and vision, for he was one of the founders of the Pictures in 1914, and was Institute president from 1922 till 1924.
      He was first secretary of the bowling club long before the greens were laid, and went on to win a top place among trophy winners. Later he became president, and growth of the club was akin to that of the Institute during his able leadership. He was a Past Master of Barossa Masonic Lodge, and the scope of his community interest reached also to the young people to whom he lent valuable guidance in the days when debating and constructive thinking were vital elements.
      D.S.K. has passed on, but it can be said of him that the path he trod bears the fragrance of affection and appreciation for the inspiration and good he wrought. Left with Mrs Keightley are two sons: Ronald, Adelaide; and Graham, Angaston. The funeral takes place today.

      There is some doubt as to Band/Baud and other spellings. I examined the original handwriting and Band is the spelling, consistent with other handwritten 'n' letters.
