Glyn sadly passed away yesterday morning in his home in Newcastle after losing the battle with cancer.
Glyn retired from the force in February 2018 after 31 years as a beat officer and dedicated ward officer on Harringay ward. He was well known in the community and loved by many.
I worked with Glyn for the past 14 years on the Harringay ward (the ladder).
Patrolling side by side, we were together for 8-10 hours a day. A bit like a part time couple. Through thick and thin he was there for me and I was there for him. He was a loyal,caring, loving and a very special person. To everyone that knew him, you know what I’m talking about. He had a sense of humour and knew some funny jokes and always called me kid (that was my nickname) and that's what I will miss most. We kept in touch when he retired until the last day.
I will miss you Glyn but I have the treasured memories of us together walking the beat. Every corner I turn, you can be sure there is a memory.
I know you will be looking down from above and saying keep it up kid.
Rest in peace Glyn Kelly.
