Our brother - Stephen Williams (a.k.a. footy) was born on the 27th February 1968. He was the second of four children born to the late Malgo Williams. He was younger brother to Ian and older brother to Debbie and Tilla.
Stephen was a devoted father to his three children Jermine, Lemisha and Ceejay. He was also a grandfather to Kermaine (RIP), Ioley, Tavai and Nieo.
Stephen was a doting son and had a special connection with mum, who he lived with for the last ten years of his life after the breakdown of his relationship. Although it breaks our hearts that he is no longer with us and we selfishly hoped to continue to share many more happy life experiences with him, it brings us great comfort to know that mother and son are united once again.
He had a humble and placid personality. He was always affectionate to those who knew him best. Not showing his love with words but with actions.
Stephens larger than life personality was summed up by his unique laugh that can only be emulated by his son Jermaine. This laugh was matched by his big smile. He enjoyed life and partied hard, but balanced out his love of partying by being a keen sportsman; his passion for sport extended to weightlifting and rugby.
We are reassured by the fact that Stephens soul will live on in the lives that he has created and in those that he touched. May the good memories outweigh the bad and may he rest in perfect peace. We are proud of the victory he achieved in winning his battle against the demons that plagued him. He has gone home to God his maker and will remain safe in the arms of the woman who first loved him.
`Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.`
Ian, Debbie & Tilla
