As you say Sam, i didn't know him as a poster, but still very sad to lose a fellow BCB'er.

Please send our condolences to his family.

Can you tell Rob? I know him and Stu got on well.


Notified. He was as amazed as I was. Didn't see that one coming... :(

I think it's the first time anything has happened like this in our little community.
Your taste in music and your generosity will be missed. RIP Stu.

I'm in total shock. My main interaction was helping him occasionally with things related to the coughing section. He was very generous and hardworking in that area. My sincerest condolences to his family and loved ones. I hope he's in a better place now.

This is terrible news; Stu was a genuinely great, friendly guy. I last met him at BOSH's JU in Richmond last year. Didn't he have a youngish daughter?

How old a guy was he?

I am genuinely shocked and upset by this terrible news. Stu was only around 40, and was as fine a bcber as I have ever met. I am finding it hard to get my head round. A tragic turn of events.

I've posted my thoughts on the thread in the other section. This really is bad news.

Hey Stu,

You do realise that you've now got the job of organising Jolly Ups up there. When my turn comes to walk through the door I expect to see the best bar band that heaven can offer.

I'm sure that quite a few glasses will be raised in your honour on the 19th. Thankfully, Smamfy has managed to dissuade The Slider from donning a frock coat and tights, reciting an Ivor Cutler poem and releasing a box of jolly up CDs over the assembled throng.

God bless mate.

Having met Stu briefly, I found him a fine jolly-up companion. I am therefore, really sad at hearing this news. It's hard to take in - my condolences go out to his loved ones.

Terrible. My thoughts are with his family who he obviously adored. Many of his posts made mention of them.

Oh no.
I feel numb.

We never met, although we did exchange many PMs.
He was a lovely friendly bloke.

His poor wife and family.
