I've just added a page on GoS in memory of Steve Horton, a fellow Green and friend of my family, who lost his battle with leukaemia a week before Christmas, at a far too early age.

Steve went to DHS in the late 70s and early 80s - one or two might remember him.

He lived his life modestly, and strongly believed that you should always give back more than you take in life. It is testament to that modesty that only since his passing has the astonishing extent to which he "gave back" been learnt by family and friends.

There's more about Steve here: http://www.greensonscreen.co.uk/stevehorton.asp.

(mods: hope it's OK to leave this for a few days here)

What an extraordinary man who has clearly led his so short life by example to us all, I hope Steve gets all rewards going following his passing and condolences to his family and friends.

Wow, what great and selfless work he did. Thanks for sharing the tribute to him.

How sad that he passed away so young, but his legacy will live on with the projects he founded that have done so much good already.

RIP Pilgrim.

RIP Steve, such a fine person; a privilege to know you for all of us lucky enough to have had the pleasure of doing so. Your legacy will be ever-lasting. I am so full of admiration for you, Rena, Betsy & Lottie.

RIP Steve.

The adage 'The good die young' certainly applied in the case.

Can only echo this - exactly what I was going to post word for word.

As someone who is embarking out on a project of trying to get a secondary school built for the slum children in Kibera, Nairobi, I can only imagine the satisfaction Steve got from the work that he did. He made a difference to people's lives and I'm sure they'll always be grateful for that. RIP Steve.
