Topic: Iluvwhite sadly departed

Hello All

In particular hello all friends of Iluvwhite who perpahs hasn't posted on here for a short while.

Sadly he passed away today after a 10 month battle with oesophageal cancer and he is greatly mourned by his family.

I know that forum members and lurkers alike will wish to raise a glass to his memory on this sad day.

You may gather from my login name that I am his missus and I am now off to raise a glass of my own.

Try and enjoy life folks.  Mrs Iluvwhite, condolences, your fella contributed to years of enjoyment on here.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

When I first posted on here, ILW was an reassuring link to people I had known in my three student years in Leeds (65-68). I'm sorry I never got to meet the man. RIP.

Re: Iluvwhite sadly departed

Thanks for thinking of us MrsILW. He'd lived a bit to say the least, was a trove of great stories about supporting Leeds away in the 60's and '70s and was always straight talking and funny. Sorry for your loss. And also to Old Codger (once of this parish) and Harvest I think who knew him from days of yore. RIP

Re: Iluvwhite sadly departed

Terribly sad news. I always hoped to bump into ILW and Mrs ILW when back in Halifax. Dirty Dicks was never the same after Steve stopped working there.

My condolences to Mrs ILW and his family. Take care.

I've just found out, by text (thanks OJ), this is terrible news.

I hadn't seen Steve for a number of years and we both lost touch probably due to losses of phones etc.  He was a great guy, an absolute entertainer to be with and Mrs ILW is a lovely person too.

I'm so sorry for your loss, J.

God bless

I am very sorry to read of this, and for your loss. I shared a couple of post-match evenings in town with Steve and he was great company and a sound lad. He'll be missed.

Bit late I know but his cremation is Friday at Park Wood Crematorium Elland at 12.45.  At 2pm BST worldwide there will be a toast in his honour.  There is also an obituary notice in YEP and online a condolences page which will be permanent.  Thank you for all your kind wishes.  His passing is still a shock.  If you need any further details - real name for instance - pls pm me.

Good luck and health to you all!!
