It has come as an enormous shock to me as it has to many people to hear that Steve has passed away whilst competing in a Triathlon in Singapore. The sense of sadness and loss that his family will be feeling at this time is difficult to comprehend and our thoughts and prayers go out to his brother and sister, Matt and Claire and their partners, his mum and dad, Jackie and Frank and his nieces Erin & Niamh.
I had the pleasure and privilege of spending many hours in Steve’s company and a relationship that started on the rugby pitch over 20 years ago became a strong friendship. We had great fun living together in my flat in Park Circus for several years and as result of our bond we took the plunge to go into business together setting up Begley Brown Financial Solutions almost exactly 10 years ago. Without Steve’s contribution there would simply be no Begley Brown and his legacy will live on. Amongst Steve’s strengths were his straight talking with a big warm heart for everyone and anyone he met. He was a massive character, with a presence that could light up a room and once you’d met Steve you didn’t forget him.
Steve, you enriched more lives than you could possibly know and were loved by more people than you could possibly have imagined, you were a hard uncompromising player on the pitch but off the pitch you were a gentle, fun loving good guy with a generous disposition. To me, you will always just be my loyal friend “Begs”. You will be sorely missed big man but you leave us all much better off for having known you.
RIP my friend, Broonie, Victoria, Erika and Alba xxx
