My partner, Karen Farr and I have been searching for our old work colleagues from the 100+ International days circa 1977 to 1980.

It is with the deepest sadness that we have learned about Steve's untimely and tragic death.

We worked together for a while at 100+ International in Oldbury, (they used to manufacture Leather rim steering wheels and Alloy road wheels).

Steve was a great character and a good friend. We spent work and leisure time together and he had dinner at my house on many occasion when he was living alone in his flat in Lye near Stourbridge. Karen and I both have many happy memories of him.

Steve love to sailing even back then, but we are intrigued as to how/why he moved from the West Midlands down to Newton Abbot and when?

You mention on Steve's website about a career change? We would love to know more about his life. It has come as a bit of a shock to us both that Steve is no longer with us in this world.

We were thinking of taking a trip down to the Torquay area sometime over the next few months for a couple of days and wondered if there was some kind of memorial to Steve which we could visit whilst we are in the area to pay our respects?

Please feel free to contact me

Kind regards

Hi Dad, happy father's day - it's funny how you pop into my head at unexpected times. Last week I though about you heaps. Poppy say's the funniest things, and loves stories about you. Sometimes she gets upset that she never got to meet you. Also, what's strange is how years literally pass and that part of me that misses you and is utterly distraught that you're not here, that part is still there, yet somehow I seem to have grown around it. Gotten used to it being there. And that's okay. I'm sure that you look down over us, sometimes I can feel you close by. Anyway, I just stopped by, because its father's day, and everyone is posting about how fab their Dads are... which is nice, but really, the truth is, all the other Dad's are nice I'm sure, but I got the best one of all. Here or not, you're my Dad, I miss you and love you. always xxfxx

Hey Stevie!
Its a beautiful day here today, it couldnt be better sailing weather. I know you are watching us and probably totally jealous! Hope it's all good up there, and you're not having too much fun! Everything is going well down here, uni is the dream, having an amazing time. I know you'd be really proud of everything that we are getting up to. Miss you and thinking of you today.

Keep watching, it's going to be one hell of a show.
I love you

this time 6 years ago, you were alive, you were my dad. a few hours later, all hell broke loose and my life, jon's life and many others were forever changed. everything in my life seems separated into two times - before, and then after the ocean took you from us. years pass, and it still hurts just the same. there are still times when im crippled with missing you. there are times i laugh and smile, and oh raising poppy brings back so many memories of you - the amount of times i follow the guidelines you laid out, or imagine you laughing your head off when she is defiant. you are present in my memories everyday, and i honestly cant imagine a time when youre not. i get along and carry on the same as anyone else would dad, and i hope i make you proud, though there is a deep hole in my heart where you were, that i dont think will ever be filled. no one on earth made me feel safe or secure the way that you did. im so proud of you dad, proud of the man you were, proud to be your daughter, my only wish is that i had of had the knowledge in that before time, to sit you down and tell you all of this, to tell you that im grateful for everytime you told me off, grounded me, shouted at me, hugged me, patted my back, phoned me just to 'check that youre alive,' im so thankful for every dinner we shared, for the laughs we had, every second of my life with you in it. im thankful. if i had you back for an hour i would say all of this to you. i miss you dad. and tonight i will be thinking of you. as always. love you dad, miss you dad, for always xxfxx

dad, dad, dad. well we are into the very last 30mins of my 20's. tomorrow i will be 30, and today has been filled with thinking of you, and the last decade. i wish more than anything you were here to see this birthday with me, oh the jokes that would be made, you being old enough to have a 30 year old daughter, two grandchildren and jon and shawna have another on the way. how fast time passes. im so thankful that you shared part of this decade with me, thankful for the lessons you taught me, and that we had some years of being as close as we were. though you have been gone four years, nearly five, there still isnt a day go by where i dont think about you, and miss you eternally. i wanted to share this moment with you, in spirit, going into my 30's with your spirit close to me. i love you dad, and miss you more than i can say, wish so much that i could call you and speak. love you always, your petal, frances xxxxxx

oh dad. its so random how you fly into my thoughts and there you stay. i miss you so much sometimes its unbearable, the need to speak to my dad and ask you a simply question. i dont know that i will ever ever come to terms with the fact that i am never going to talk to you again. it blows my mind. and now there is all this stuff happening to do with your silly stupid death, and i just want the truth to come out. i pray every night that all those involved will speak the truth, that those who are afraid to talk, will find the courage... the courage you had out there on those seas. four years gone dad, and people are still rattling on about your death... so poppy talks about you lots, which is interesting. apparently you showed her how to fold socks, in your spiritly/ghostly form. this true? i pray that you watch over her. keep her safe while she is dreaming. dad, dad, dad... i miss you. im a big girl now, all grown up and yet i still need my dad. i will miss you every day for the rest of my life i think. love you always dad. im so proud of you. love you, from your petal. xxxxx

i was thinking about you today, we had 5 inches of snow..well something like that, put it this way, for devon, it was very impressive! just thinking about things and you know people say that you dont know what you've got untill it's gone, it wasn't like that with you. We always knew how special and amazing you are, we always treasured any time we had with you, like when you came round to dinner..especially that one time, when i made the most disasterous pudding which i'd forgotten to put sugar in (come on, i was 10, easy mistake to make!) but we all tried to dutifully eat it, for like 2 minutes then just started laughing! So it's not that we didn't know, because we did, but it's that we always thought we appreciated it, only now we have the capability to realise that without you here, that all the worrying we did, all the moments where i sat in my room with my fingers crossed, wishing for you, was worth it. It meant that we were able to spend as much time with you as we could, and for that we should be truly thankful. Yeah, i miss you so much but I know that you're still here and watching us..probably didn't need to tell you about the snow bit but felt i should set the scene! Hope you're ok, watch down on us and keep us safe this christmas. love you and miss you, your niece xx oh and i got my GCSE results in the summer, got 1 A*, 8 A's and 2 B's! and You know your rucksack, the big hiking one, it's coming on expedition to mongolia with me for a month so you'll be with me when i'm riding horses across the mongolian plains..which due to my fear of horses, i'm terrified about! So this will be fun! see you soon xx
