I know exactly what you mean, Mike. He made his office sound like the headquarters of MI6! I bet he was brilliant at his job.

Though I didn't know him, it's such sad news, and my heart goes out to his poor family.

I'm just reading through the thread again, sorry for quoting weeks later. I suppose because the funeral is imminent and I just miss my friend. But the bolded bit is true: he was excellent at his job. He always used to say that the counter-fraud game is a sales job and he was absolutely right. At the risk of pulling back the curtain a bit, getting liars to buy into their own bullshit by, in my case, sounding like a thick Brummie before taking their account apart is the name of the game.

His passing is my loss and I shall miss him greatly.

That's a lovely story and if anyone else wants to make a donation here's the link.

It certainly sounds like he will have a large group of friends from H&V attending tomorrow. I hope I get to say hello to a fair few.

It's really quite strange that the funeral is tomorrow when it still doesn't feel real. The H&V representatives will do him proud, for that I'm sure.

One of them is currently doing it in his trousers at the thought of speaking in public and I don't doubt that Stu will be up there pissing himself at it.

I only met Stu a few times at away games in London, most notably at Wembley and enjoyed great times pre and post match at the Swiss Cottage.  Such a character as he was always so friendly and funny. I hope for all attending (especially those also speaking) that it goes as well as these things can and he has a fabulous send off. Will be thinking of Stu, the family and all of you I know tomorrow. God bless.

Also hoping it all goes well tomorrow, only a brief meet in person but there are some folk you always read and think fondly of on here; it was moving the other week to read all the thread.

Thanks to those who speak well of their friend on our behalf tomorrow.

Send all our love to his family please.

I'd like to echo the above. I didn't know him but today is going to be sad for those that did. I hope it goes as well as it can and that you all give him a good send off. It sounds like he deserves just that.

Nice one Dave, I'm sure you'll do him proud.
