Gill and Hannah you have been in our thoughts from the day you broke the news to us about Stephens illness it was such a shock. Having dealt with his tax affairs for many years and also his Dad`s many years before that we considered them friends as well as clients. Stephen was always a pleasure to do business with nothing was ever too much trouble, he will be very sadly missed x

The first day back at the shop knowing that Stephen wouldn't be there anymore was hard for Andrew. I know that The shop is in safe hands and the Boss will never be forgotten . He touched the lives of so many different people. Life goes on but will never be the same without the ones we love .

Paul Walters donated £10 in memory of Stephen

Dear Gill and Hannah.Iwas stunned when i heard the news from steve king some weeks ago.Words can never bring steve back but he has left indelible memories on those of us who were privilaged to have known him.
I first new steve from the late sixties from friends on birchwood lane.Then again later in the early seventies through ham radio.Pete and maureen hopkinsons place was were we all met for years.Fond memories of the red hot summer of 76 we all went camping to tenby.I can se steve now many times in the shop as i was waiting to pull out in traffic at fordbridge lane.

I think steve would have been knocked out by the eagles music played . as it has a very strong connection to ham radio as Joe Walsh has been for many years a fellow licensed ham operator.

I first met Steve walking to Junior School nearly 50 years ago. We became best friends right through school years and into adults, sharing many interests such as music, clay pigeon shooting and the love of cocker spaniels. He will never be forgotton.

My Hubby Steve

Yesterday was so hard, but we got through, and I hope you were looking down on us, and saw all the many friends past and present, and how much everybody loved you.

Your Brother played a great tribute to you in church, for which you would be very proud, because I truly am.

They say time is a great healer, I cannot see that at this time, if ever, I love and miss you so much, and, this is only the beginning of the rest of my life without you. For which I find it so hard to bare, there are going to be so many long dark days without you.

But I have wonderful memories of our life which I will forever treasure and look back on, and one of the best and amazing things you ever did for me, was to give me our beautiful daughter Hannah.

I will continue to bring her up for both of us as best I can, and continue to make you very proud of her, I hope when she eventually settles down, she ends up with someone as wonderful as you.

All my love forever

Gill xxxxx

Barrie & Anne Hopkinson donated in memory of Stephen

What can I say, firstly Steve "I'm gutted." You were such an integral part of my early life, my Mam's kitchen seemed to be the meeting place for us all. I remember me Mam doing the odd barbecue on a two ring camp stove round the back of the garage with sausages and burgers from the shop. I remember you giving me a lift to Matlock Bath on the back of your 400/4. Fastest I'd been on two wheels til then was about 49½ MPH on my moped, took us 4 seconds to get there and me about 2 minutes for my legs to stop shaking. I know we lost touch over the latter years whatnot with work and family lives, but you're always there mate, my heart goes out to Gill, Hannah and Derek.
