David Laundon, who took over from Gary at this year's AGM, issued the following statement on behalf of the Group.
'I have to inform you of the sad news that Gary Steele passed away this morning in St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford. He had been there for only the last 2 weeks after the local hospital had informed him that his cancer was still spreading and his treatment options were at an end. Gary was initially diagnosed around 2000 and has been living with and fighting his prostate cancer bravely ever since. He worked tirelessly to setup and develop the work of the Leighton Hospital Prostate Cancer Support Group and only stood down in May this year, when he felt that his health was continuing to deteriorate. Gary’s work, through the Group, has touched thousands of people’s lives. He was so well respected and I am sure that he will be missed by all of you who have come into contact with him over the years.'
