I've been asked to post the following...

George Harris, Argyle and West Ham fan, has sadly passed away due to asbestosis. He was aged 70. RIP to a top bloke, his funeral is today.

Thank you Posty for this tribute to George, he was a wonderful man and an inspriration to me, sadly today I could not attend his funeral, which is what I wanted to do, I am on a drip for 8 hours in hospital at this moment.

One thing I would like to amend is the terminal illness that George had, it's called MESOTHELIOMA, it's caused by asbestos and there is no cure, hence terminal. I met George at the Mesothelioma support group that I attend at The Mustard Tree at Derriford Hospital, although I live in North Cornwall I attend Derriford Hospital and I am a member of this support group.

George always had a big smile, although quite unwell with chest problems and breathing difficulties he inspired me no end, I will miss his support hugely. My thoughts are with his family now and will be for a long time, they also attended the Support group, they worked with George to raise much needed and useful funds for our group, a truly supportive loving family.

Amazingly George and I did not mention Argyle much, maybe because recently Argyle news has been so negative and we must remain positive, a positive outlook is vital !

But, although I do not wish to talk about my illness on a forum, I felt I wanted to come 'out' on here because of George and what he meant to me.

Thank you Posty for starting this thread, a truly good man has gone to join other Argyle fans up there, you were right about it being an asbestos linked cancer, it's what we call Meso ( an easier word to say ) a terrible terminal cancer that anyone can can by just breathing in a fibre or two in the air at home, work or play. It can take 40 years to develope but can be 'caught' so easily.

Plymouth area is the 2nd highest in the UK due to the dockyard, the dockyard was the cause of, sadly, SO many cases of Meso, due to all the asbestos in use there, a terrible place for young men to work many years ago !!!

RIP George and my thoughts are with your loving family now. I' m not to proud to admit I have a few tears today as I remember George, BUT I remain 100% positive !

Thank you Posty, Ian had pm'ed me to say that he had a relative with something similar but I did not make this connection, it's a small world and I am sure Ian is also very upset today as I am. George never mentioned Ian, why would he maybe, he would have no idea Ian knew me and vice versa, our ATD was minimal, out talk was on being positive, laughing at something and for me listening to George inspiring others was enough.

Thanks for this news Ian ( Posty ) . However my thoughts as you can imagine are on a larger than life character today. Sadly missed but remembered with huge fondness.

RIP George
Neighbour and good friend, our grandson's first Father Christmas. We will all miss but not forget you. Keep watching from the Stadium in the Sky.

RIP George.
Terrible disease, hundreds, if not thousands, affected in Australia. Wittnoon a town in WA was dedicated to mining the stuff. James Hardie, a major player in asbestos, has, and still is, settling claims from those affected.
Thai, good luck and stay positive.
