Steve will alway be in my thoughts. He was a giant of a human who freely gave everything that was asked of him and took nothing that was undeserved. He had a joy for life and even after his diagnosis he remained one of the most positive people I have ever known.
Other than being a Chelsea fan he was as perfect a human being, team mate, friend and bloke as I can imagine! The number and diversity of the people at his funeral told me that everywhere he went in life he made friends and left a bright light in peoples’ lives.
He fought his cruel disease with bravery, determination and positivity that inspired me and showed the depth of his love for life, his wife and his family. Steve will live on in his kids and in the fond memories of all of his friends.
Rest in peace big man.
