Well-known Angus man Keddie Law has died suddenly at the age of 70.

Mr Law, who lived in Montrose for the last 25 years, passed away on Tuesday, March 1, at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.

He had taken photographs for Angus County Press for a number of years.

He was born in Burntisland on January 22, 1946.

In 1968 he graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in geography.

He went on to teach geography at Queen Anne High School in Dunfermline and then George Watson’s College in Edinburgh before moving to Angus to take up the post of principle teacher of geography at Arbroath Academy in 1974.

He lived in Carnoustie first and moved to Montrose when he married wife Isobel on August 1, 1991.

Mrs Law said her husband’s passions in life were photography, bridge, bowling and travelling - he’d been to 100 airports worldwide and being a geographer he enjoyed visiting places with geographical features.

She said he loved teaching, this area and had always been into photography.

She added one of his favourite holidays was a seven-week trip to New Zealand when they both retired from teaching in 2005.

Mr Law’s funeral will be tomorrow (Friday) at 11.30am at Emslie S Collier, Montrose.

Friends and family are asked to wear bright colours.

It will be followed by a private family-only service at Parkgrove Crematorium in Friockheim.
