EXCLUSIVE NEWS FOR STUART’S FANS
New Memorial bench for Stuart Unveiled!
Isn't it wonderful how a group of Stuart's fans led by Tracy Sadler with help from
Maria and her husband Jesus (from Spain) who have gathered together to offer a fitting
tribute to Stuart - this wonderful memorial bench situated where Stuart is buried
- the "Huyton Parish" church graveyard.
Joyce (Stuart’s sister) with Tracy, pictured
This would not have been possible without assistance from the Canon John Stanley
and the church council.
The bench was inaugurated on the anniversary of Stuart's death - on April
The ribbon was designed by Maria and Jesus and was based on an original art
work of Stuart's.
In this photo (left) you can see Joyce cutting the ribbon with the assistance
of her son Andrew (Stuart’s nephew).
Stuart's sister Joyce was asked to cut the ribbon as she had been very supportive of this project as was a Pauline (Stuart's other sister).
At the opening ceremony there were 3 generations of Stuart's family present.
In one of the photos you will see a poignant memory of Joyce and her husband
John Wainwright sitting on the bench with Rod Murray - Joyce and John recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary - Rod gave Joyce away as her father was in the South Americas and could not get the flight home in time.
Rod was one of Stuart's best friends and flat mates whilst at the Liverpool College
of Art and they were both joined at some point by John
A photo of Alex (Stuart's grand nephew/ Andrew’s son) reveals the
unmistakable similarity between Alex and Stuart.
