Dickie Bird has told us the sad news that Steve Dawe passed away this morning, 24th September, after a courageous and long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by family and he departed peacefully.
Many of you will remember Steve from rugby, cricket and basketball at school and obviously from Purley RFC and the Old Purleians CC in later years.
A terrific guy with many friends, he was a man with fantastic humour and humility. Always understated but with an uncanny ability to entertain people with a multitude of stories, comments and ultimate one-liners, we shall miss him and feel privileged to have been touched by his friendship.
