Adrian Smith RIP

Very shocked to learn last night that my friend Adrian Smith died suddenly last Monday aged 52.

Just goes to show that death can come when we least expect it. The Obit reads

"Died unexpectedly on Monday 13th June 2011 aged 52. Sadly missed by his partner Stella, his brother Stewart, sister Deborah and all his nieces and nephews. Funeral service at St Mary's Church, Aspenden on Wednesday 22nd June at 2.45pm."

Adrian had a great sense of humour and a real sense of fun, and was really great company. He had strong opinions on a number of subjects but was never unpleasant to those with different ones.

There is a guestbook linked to his obituary at the Harlow Star website where those who knew him can leave a message here.

To avoid causing alarm to friends of any of the other people with whom Adrian shared his name, I had better add that the Adrian Smith who has just died was an old boy of Bishop's Stortford school. This is not the Adrian Smith, formerly of Harpenden, who attended St Albans School (1973-1980) and served as a member of Harpenden Town Council in the 1980's.
