Tribute penned for Millom dad
Last updated at 16:23, Thursday, 20 September 2012
TRIBUTES have continued to pour in for father-of-three Stuart Spragg.
The 44-year-old collapsed at his Huddleston Road home, in Millom, on Wednesday last week.
Doctors discovered bleeding on his brain and he was kept on life support until later that evening.
Now friends Russell Townsend, of the Bridge Café, in Millom, and Gina Hine have penned a moving tribute to Mr Spragg in a moving poem.
It says: “To us he was someone special, someone set apart.
“His memory will live forever, engraved in to our hearts.
“Stuart, we miss you.
“A face we shall always remember. A voice we shall recall.
“A memory to cherish forever. A friend who will be missed so much, so dear to us all.
“For anyone who had the pleasure of having Stuart in their lives, no matter what the relationship, we’ve all been left in pain.
“An irreplaceable soul, taken from us all.
“His smile, his loyalty, his loving, caring nature.
“We’ll fill our hearts with all your love that you enjoyed to share. And you’ll never be forgotten, mate.”
A memorial bench for Mr Spragg is due to be placed in the Bridge Café garden at a later date.
Mr Spragg was a full-time carer for his wife, Clare Spragg, and dad to the couple’s children, Megan, 11, Molly, 10 and Sam, five.
The family moved to Millom from their native Telford, in Shropshire, about 10 years ago and Mr Spragg was well known in the town.
Mrs Spragg paid tribute to her husband earlier this week, describing him as: “a quiet guy with a heart of gold”.
She said the family had received a lot of sympathy cards from people in the town since her husband’s passing.
His funeral will take place on Monday from 1.30pm at St George’s Church in Millom.
A reception will take place after the service at Millom Cricket Club in St George’s Road.
