His son, Simon Keable-Elliot said: “My dad was a very kind and honourable man.

“He was very active in the local community and supported other doctors.”

Born on November 14, 1914, Tony’s mother, Jolie Buck, died at birth from an overdose of anaesthesia.

She was the partner of Robert Keable, an author, with his well-known book being ‘Simon Called Peter’, which is based on an affair on Tony's parents.

Robert then travelled to Tahiti and had another son with a Tahitian woman.

Tony was left behind and was later adopted by his family friends, Jack and Rita Elliott, who brought him up as their own son in Stokenchurch.

Robert Keable died in Tahiti in December 1927.

Tony rarely spoke about his father's rejection until the latter years of his life, and during his teens, he legally changed his name from Keable to Keable-Elliot, in honour of his family friends who took him in.

He studied in Dorset before becoming a GP in 1948 in Stokenchurch – a job he had until 1987.

He married his wife, Gilian Hutchison, in 1953 where they had four children.

Gillian sadly passed away in 2011, with their children (all sons) being David, who followed his father’s footsteps into becoming a GP.

Their second son, Ian, was an accountant before becoming a professional magician.
