One of our dearest friends, witty, charming, kind and gentle, full of fun and enthusiasm. He will leave a huge void in our lives.

Can't believe you are gone, Steve. Didn't get to spend enough time with you of late, but when I did, it was just like old times.
So sorry for your loss, Sue and also condolences to Steve's family.

Fond memories of our time together as workmates and friends. Burning the midnight oil putting the world and Brooks & Walker to rights.
Shame we didn't get the opportunity to meet up more often in recent times.
Condolences to all the family
God bless.

It's so difficult to believe that you are gone, Steve, you've always been such a big part of the 'Glandon lot'. The star of the Connect theatre productions too, it was such fun rehearsing together. Your wit, your kindness, your great concern for everyone you met will be sorely missed. RIP dear friend.

We miss you Steve. Such a quiet but sociable man who always cared for others. A member of our mini cycle group he, the thin one, who could have “slid through a letterbox” was always the one in front, powering up and down the roads .... to be first to get to Sue’s marvellous scones and cakes. He had the audiences laughing with him in his expert renditions of various roles in Allo Allo, Absolutely Fabulous and others. Careful in his decision making, you could always rely on Steve , even if was usually late! Unafraid to practice his french conversation, he ignored french protocol, kissing all the women, but never offending anyone. Thank you personally for all your care to me in the last two years.
Condolences to Sue and both families.
Rest in calm peace and tranquillity. Anne & Colin

Written on 20 March 2018

Peace in my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet
Let it not be a death but completeness
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way

- Rabindranath Tagore
