I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone who was better at picking you up when you were down, than Steve. In fact, he was a bit like Hannibal from the A-team..  “If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him!..”  And there was no doubt he …

You brightened every room, you lifted spirits, you laughed, you danced, you hugged, you loved, you were loved – by so many!  I have met many, many people, but very few that come even close to having the energy, drive, determination, spirit and zest for life that you did Steve.  You were unique in …

What can I say about this legend of a man that everyone who has ever met him doesn’t already know. We have all been very lucky to have known Tanzy, he left his mark and memory on everyone he ever met that is for sure. He will be sadly missed for sure, but never forgotten! …

Knowing and watching him grow up from the age of six or seven, i was lucky enough to see him Grow up into a unique Human being, a selfless caring and down right crazy man!.. loved him like my own little Brother, i think my fondest memory of him is when we both decided …

Tanzy. I won’t lie to you mate. Me and you. This wasn’t love at first sight. I wasn’t sure.  I thought to myself “Who the hell is this loudmouth Stretford Jim Carrey” ? But I got you really wrong. Very wrong. The year was 2001. Everyone can remember their first meeting with you Tanzy. …

Met you through my brother stick (Green), any friend of my brother is always a friend of mine but you were different, you were so kind and welcoming to me with open arms to me in to the riff raff family, it was amazing. Coaching me through my boxing experience was very strange as …

We’ve been lucky enough to have the Tanswells as neighbours and friends for the last 6 years. We’re really missing all the noise which came with Steve next door and we know life will never be the same again. My most abiding memory of Steve is probably when he nearly set our house on fire. …

I’ve been wracking my brain to try and remember the first time I met Steve but I just can’t think. It was probably via the Contis at a party or in the pub. I do remember though that he was always so friendly. A proper charming, cheeky chappie. I got to know Tansy more …
