Here is what I found:

It is with regret that I have to advise you of the passing of former member Mike McKevitt after a prolonged period of ill health.

Mike was a professional actor and some members will remember a Tuesday morning meeting in the form of a question and answer session where he reflected on his career.



Among his many television works he played Phillips in Avengers episode Thingumajig (1969).



Interesting details of Mike's life:

https://harlowmensforum.com/2013/01/08/secretarys-report-5/

Mike or Frank as he was then known grew up in Glasgow and started as a drummer. He was introduced in that role to the great Sir Harry Lauder and later played Lauder in a play based on his life story. After a spell in the Forces in Egypt and a brief period as a shop assistant, his success in amateur drama obtained him the promise of parts in the Donald Wolfit company. Although in the event he never worked with the great man, Mike became a member of the great Joan Littlewoood company at Stratford East with Harry H. Corbett, appeared in a Wesker play at the Royal Court during the radical 60s and had parts in many long running TV series such as Emergency Ward 10, Dr Finlay and Redcap, the last with John Thaw.

Thank you for posting. Sad news. Especially sad for me to bid farewell to a fellow Frank!
