Behind his quiet and unassuming demeanour was a true football man. Obviously, Bristol Rovers was his first love and his long standing association with Ian Holloway brought him to Argyle to work with the youth set up. Holloway's Twitter tribute to him sums it all up.
He always had time to chat and would always acknowledge. His football wisdom and knowledge was unparalleled. As others have said in 2011 he stood tall against the Administrators on behalf of the Argyle staff. I think they underestimated him not realising he had a strong administrative background as Chief Executive of not only Rovers but also Norwich City.
Many players past and present will be mourning his passing. Sad news.
