A sad day.

Last night, whilst I was on shift, I discovered that one of my WWW based friends had passed away.

Although I never met him, this chap was always chirpy and cheerful and never let his ailments drag him down. He was an inspiration to anyone who had a long term and debilitating medical affliction. He had been ill for as long as I have known him and he sadly passed away in hospital after fighting hard after an operation.

I am deeply saddened by his passing and want to humbly pass on my sincere condolences to his family and all of those people who have been affected by this tragic and untimely event.

R.I.P. Gareth Sutherwood, A.K.A Grekwood.

You will be sorely missed.

I'm sorry to hear that. It's always sad to lose someone, no matter how well you know them.

Thanks for passing this on.
Gareth brought so much humour and energy to everything he did. I'm kind of stunned to hear this news...
Cheers Grek, thanks for the bananas.

A truly very sad news. I've only knew Grekwood via the FoD where he was always so cheerful.While I'm deeply saddened, thanks for letting me know.

Thank you. I was his girlfriend/ partner ;'( It's nice to read how much he was liked. In the last year of his life Gareth also started volunteering for a charity that helps disabled adults & children. It was a charity close to home & meant a lot to him. So there's also a fundraising page for that [link] [/link]
