Like so many, I cannot get my head around this. You had such a sense of fun and always filled the room with laughter, you were simply a great bloke. I have so many good memories from working together in the late 90’s, the bars of Tashkent, relying on your Russian, watching CFC together at Wembly lift the FA cup in 97 to later gatherings for client meetings and finding a corner to discuss the latest issues at Stamford Bridge. You built a great business at Chaucer and contributed so much to the market and will leave a very large hole. I cannot imagine what Catherine and the kids are going through but I do know how much you loved them. Rest in peace you will be so missed.
