Brian sadly died of prostate cancer on the 17th September 2007 aged 68. He grew up in Chessington in Surrrey, later on moved to Hampshire and in later years enjoyed life down in Dorset. Brian loved anything to do with boating, first owning a boat in the 1970's which he bought and did up, subsequently being able to get bigger and better motor boats which he used on the Thames, being a member of the Surbiton small boat club. In recent years he enjoyed taking us waterskiing (and having a couple of goes himself!) and his last boat was a sealine which he loved to go out in at Poole. We had great fun doing the RYA navigation course together! He also had several sailing holidays in Greece and Turkey which he enjoyed with his late wife Pam. He always supported the RNLI and requested donations to the RNLI instead of flowers at his funeral. He was a great one for 'safety at sea'; The cabin of his boat was always jam packed with bits and pieces of equipment 'just in case'! Brian was always full of plans and new ideas; he hated sitting around and always liked to be on the go. His energy and enthusiasm for life is still very much missed a year on from his death and he will always be in our hearts.
