So sorry to hear of the passing of Stuart, my Mum Christine and I were neighbours to Stuart and family at Blackburn Rd. We will remember him as a good neighbour with a wonderful sense of humour. I always remember him smiling. Thinking of you all xx


Ephrem Clarke

In my life I had one true genuine friend, by best pal Stuart. We shared so many good times together, and was always there during difficult days. I treasure his memory, was so lucky to have him as a friend, and I will never forget the truth be and only Stuart.
