Terrible news. I thought he was clear. I lost my father two years ago in July due to cancer as well and I knew Andy from the forum rides / drinks. At least he is now in the better place. Fighting cancer is tough. Rest in peace brother.
Pulling sick skids with Fiddy and Bullheart.
Goodbye Andy. You were unbelievable how you gave cancer a couple of asskickings and returned to be so strong on the bike so quick.
Many fond memories from Wests, SEs, rides, his birthdays and one on one meet ups.
Big contribution to the forum/scene esp around cancer and mental health.
Really sad to see this, I've been following his progress on Instagram which has been silent for the last two weeks. He had so much determination to beat it even after everything he had been through.
Fuck. Gutted. RIP Andrew you were ace.
Aww, this is shit
Fixeh skid in peace where ever you are
Andrew and I discussed me helping him operate a fundraiser over his last few weeks and after his death in order to raise some money for a good cause. We never had a chance to discuss details like which causes he wanted to support but I think the forum should get together and do something in his name when the time is right. Subject to approval from his family of course.
As @TW said, meeting his problems head on. Whether it was cancer, roundabouts, parked cars... the daft bugger. Resurrect SEs for a send-off at some point soon?
This sounds like a brilliant idea (if the family agree).
Let's let the dust settle, give everybody time to breathe and I'll reach out to them in a few weeks.
I cant believe it happened.
Always determined to beat it no matter what.
As soon as I find out more about funeral arrangements I will post them
Sad news and those fond memories of him will never be the same.
RIP and +1 to the fundraiser.
+1 SEs too
I think it'd be good for people to get together and have an informal beer and talk about the man. Maybe SEs next week even.
So sad. RIP Andrew.
Cheers Andy. :-(
RIP Rowhan, and respect to anyone who knew him and supported him though it
Ride on homie. It just wouldn’t let him go would it.
Confirmed. South Easts revival this coming Tuesday 13th August in the Roebuck. Cycling into the back of parked cars/buses/people optional.
You did good Andy, you kept swinging punches till the very end, but it’s a sad day.
