    Sad news

    Very sad to have to tell you that DJ Harry passed away this morning (wednesday 3rd December) of cancer after a long battle. He leaves behind his wife Elaine and daughters Natasha (10) and Rachel (8). I will be arranging a collection and card to be sent from all the kit car buddies who want to contribute. Donations by post please to 14, Ashgrove Close, Hardwicke Gloucester GL2 4RT. Cheques made payable to E Stevenson. If anyone wants to call me for a chat my number is 01452 531854 or email me. Obviously Elaine is not taking calls at the moment. Funeral arrangements will be posted here in due course. If anyone wants Elaines address you will need to contact me as obviously I cannot post it here.

    Am very sad - Lost a good mate

    B****r ..... Stones will never be the same again.....
    BUT if I know DJ - somewhere will possibly be getting an eternal music-and-light-show!
    It's a 52 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    A sad loss - he will be missed by all that knew him. Thanks for keeping us informed.

    If you are in agreement I would like to submit a small obituary piece based on the details you give above to Ian Stent at Complete Kit Car as they also knew him well from the shows.

    I spoke to Mike Tindall (Purple Passion) a short while ago and understand that you and some guys from the All Car Club helped sort Harry's house so that he could spend his last hours at home with his family. Thanks, I'm sure it was appreciated by his family.

    Ben, I'll give you a call tomorrow or feel free to call me anytime. 07500119695. I need Elaine's address.

    Pass on my regards.

    Truly a sad day.

    I have taken the liberty of stickying this thread so it cannot be missed.
    I knew it was close from the last time I spoke to him (and you), but not this close.
