My deepest sympathies to you and all of the family at this difficult timeStu was my nephew and I’m sharing all the messages with the family. Can’t read them without crying but it’s a great support to us all to know he was so well loved and respected. He was North End through and through. We’ve lost one of the best. xx
He was all of those things and much more besides. Your kindness means so much xxWhen this forum was much smaller, maybe some 15 years ago, about 8 of us forum members, largely unknown to each other, went up together for a weekend's camping in Grizedale to get to know what kind of fellow fans we all are when not hiding behind a keyboard. At the time, Yoga was driving us all nuts and we tried to meet up with Shaky in Ulverston on the Sunday, but Shaky was probably out on a dog trail.
I cannot claim to knowing Stu at all; in fact, I doubt I met him again after that camping trip, but you do get a sense of a person sitting around a campfire in the woods with others, under the stars, sharing a bbq. I thought of him as handsome, funny, sincere and inclusive.
Not only a massive loss to all his loved ones, but all the wider PNE family.
Warmest wishes to all his family in these very difficult times.
