It was with heavy hearts recently that we bid farewell to a true hero and friend whose unwavering dedication and tireless efforts have left an indelible mark on our community. Knel Deeb R.I. P was one of the first to volunteer for Lusk Action Group when we set it up some years ago and quickly established himself as a key member of the committee who got a lot of things done without fuss or fanfare. Knel was warm and engaging and loved a good debate, he was never afraid to touch controversial subject matter and was genuinely interested in people and what their own interests and passions were, he wanted to ensure that all angles to a problem were considered and discussed. Knel loved his town and was genuinely committed to making it a better place for everyone. His contributions were as diverse as they were impactful. Outside of the Action Group, Knel was also involved in so many ways in other groups within the community. Coaching the under 10’s in Lusk United, being a member of Lusk Autism Friendly Town committee, litter picking regularly, being our safety officer for the Lusk Summer Festival, founding organiser of our Christmas Lights, helping the ICA out when they needed it and, of course, being a part of our own committee, it may be a small comfort that Knel, the son of Lusk who cared so deeply about his community was also very much loved in return. Knel had time for everyone, always a chat or a laugh or kind words. He quietly got on with doing small things for people, that made a big difference. He was a devoted family man, to his wife Martha and to his children Natasha, Nathan and Aidan, his parents Maeve and Abraham and his five sisters: Seren, Yvette, Nyssan, Kyma and Ryam and cousins. To you all, we extend our deepest and heartfelt condolences on your profound loss.
Rest in eternal peace, dear friend. Your legacy will forever live on in the hearts of those who
were fortunate enough to have known you.
