Steve Brister - Golden Boy Forever

Steve Brister and his wife, Jackie

Steve Brister

1st January 1953 - 27th September 2010

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son, Brother, Uncle, Friend, BT Buddy, Avid Watford F.C .Supporter, Founder of the Norfolk Hornets...and GOLDEN BOY FOREVER...

It is with great sadness that I write this post. Early this morning, Monday 27th September 2010, we received the news that Steve had passed away after a very courageous battle with metastasised Prostate Cancer.

Over the past few weeks and months I have had the honour of getting to know Steve, Jackie and their family. Through their darkest days they all managed to hold their heads up high and sing, and I shall always remember the love and support they showed to me and BT Buddies.

Yesterday Steve's fundraising target was met and he was told that he had hit his £3,000, a fitting tribute. We already knew Steve was a special guy, and the love and support his fellow Hornets have shown since the donation page was launched shows that it's not just us who think that.

Over the coming weeks Watford F.C. and all its Hornets will find out just what Steve and BT Buddies have been working on these past few months, and just how amazing Steve has been in supporting the work BT Buddies does, even when things turned pretty bloody awful for him and his family.

We decided to create this little area for Steve, his wife Jackie, the family and their fellow Hornets so that everyone has a little space where they can come and remember such a wonderful man.

The Book of Remembrance is now open and we encourage all those reading to leave a message for Steve's wife, Jackie, his children, grandchildren, parents, brother and other family and friends.

Andrew and I were lucky enough to get to meet Steve and spend some very special time with him and the family in recent weeks and we'd like to extend our deepest sympathies to Jackie and all who knew Steve.

Rest peacefully now Steve, we'll never forget you.


Your SBYA BT Buddy,
