    A great shame and a sad loss to all, but especially to farming forums where he has been a great contributor for many years.
    May he rest in peace.

    Quite a shock, as I was unaware that Stephen was ill.

    We talked occasionally on the phone, and we had some long and interesting conversations.

    He will be missed.

    Condolences to his family.

    R.I.P Stephen.

    While most farmers are inward thinkers ,he definitely could think outside the box . A very interesting individual .
    Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

    Thanks for the alert, NeilO.

    Stephen always came over as a very decent human being. Sincere sympathy to his family.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen, he asked me to help him trace some family roots here in Devon.

    He was a very knowledgeable man & was very "full on"...he was also a very considerate and thoughtful man.

    Rest in Peace Stephen, and condolences to the family.

    Somebody has said he was controversial. Only if you disagreed with his views!! I found him authorititive and balanced.
    Maybe I would say that because he always spoke the truth about GM.
    My son met him in Roumania, found him quite a bloke.
    To me he was a real contribution to the forum and my education,

    Well said Jack, none of us are ever too old to learn using information from others.

    A great sadness.

    Very sad to see a real character go, must of first come across him on FWi, he was still true to his values- even recently taking SRB and me to task for daring to like triangle tracked cats!, but humble enough when he learnt something new from someone.

    Someone who left a lasting impression.

    Big shame he often startled me with his depth of knowledge
    In my belief he shall soon be reincarnated and is now as I type selecting the right copulating birth parents in the right environment for him to continue his cause, perhaps our paths shall cross again.

    Very sad news.
    He had a wealth of knowledge & experience, from many varying angles.
    The early BFF direct drilling topics would not have been debated so thoroughly without his input.
    Condolences to his friends & family.

    A genuine character. Rest easy.
