I have known Stuart a few years now mainly through delivering or collecting from All Pallets at Eastbourne Sussex.
He has always had a lot to say while we were there, but has always had a laugh and been full of mischief and banter which was sometimes not appropriate for my delicate nature.
As you all know he was always up for a prank or two.
I was quite shocked to hear while I was furloughed for the first Covid Lockdown that his cancer had come back but he was in hospital to have it all removed, which he told me was a success. What a shock it was to hear how his cancer had come back again for everyone that knew him.
Then to be told that it was also spreading into other parts of his body and to hear from Adam Taylor that it is terminal.
Unfortunately it looks like he won’t see this side of Christmas which has shocked us all, it was great to see him today at All Pallets and have a small chat with him and receive some well loved abuse from him which we had all missed.
