A good number of Suffolk chess players attended Peter Keffler‘s funeral on Monday, held at Weeley Crematorium near Clacton. Appropriately, the flowers on the coffin were in the form of a chess board. Peter’s three children, Raymond, Andy and Sue, were all pleased to see so many chess-players present.
