Oh no, that is sad. Gone too soon. A reminder that we have only a limited time to star in the story of our own lives. Now he will be a memory in the lives of others.

He wasn’t married.

He never came around after Brexit. Too bitter a pill to swallow.

Oh, I see. Well my condolences still stand. I certainly didn't agree with Ste's politics, but I'm sorry to hear that we lost him. Man, a lot of people are dying in their 60's these days... sad to see.

Thanks for coming by and telling this. I have chatted with STE many times
in the forum chat. He had a very dry and sometimes quirky humor.

RIP

Actually, they made a point of ensuring she ( N) could be registered as a  partner and based their application for her UK residency on this status ..it was not the easy route

 STE was the chap who introduced me to the Freedom of Movement Directive ..

About a month ago, I'm remember saying to myself, "I wonder what happened to STE, I haven't seen a post from him in a while?".

A might proper poster with a very "brit" sense of humour. I too, didn't always agree with his views, but welcomed his POV nevertheless. We are not here to agree though, but to have discussions on things that need to be talked about.

Sad news indeed.

RIP STE.

Sorry to hear the bad news about STE, an old acquaintance and very likeable character in person.

I met STE, in person, some years ago, had a pub lunch and he advised me how to use the Freedom of Movement EU Directive 2004, which I used to  bring my wife to UK and on the way I save a lot of trouble and lot's of money....... unlike some....!

Sad New indeed.

Ste wasn't short of money. He was a good tech and very well paid for it.

His politics were quite opposite to mine similar to what others have said.

We met Ste and Nadia quite a few times. He was a good bloke. I recall he had a heart condition. 60 is young to go though. RIP Ste.

Very sad news indeed and I wasn’t expecting to read that. We might have had different opinions on many subjects but he came across as a decent guy.

I can only imagine how his family is feeling.
