Stewart Leask RIP

Recommended Posts

My friend Stewart Leask was a die-hard Thistle fan and regular attender at Firhill .  He lived in Milgavie, but he and his wife Linda had a wee cottage on the Isle of Arran which she had inherited.

On Sunday 3rd February Stewart and his dog Corrie left this cottage to walk to the Glenashadale Falls.  He never came home.

A huge search was organised, involving the police, the army, the coastguard helicopter, the local Mountain Rescue Team and scores of volunteers from all over Arran

On Wednesday Corrie was found near the carpark for the Falls.

On Friday Stewart's body was found in the sea off the Ayrshire Coast.

As you can imagine, this long period of uncertainty put an intolerable amount of stress and strain on his wife and family.

A huge blow to his family and friends, and another sad loss to the Thistle family, his cheery, smiling face will be sorely missed.

We will be putting up a tile to his memory in the Jackie Husband stand.

So sorry for your loss, I had followed this story but sadly the outcome we had hoped for was not to be.  Condolences to all who knew Stewart and of course his family.  Nice gesture with the tile in his memory.

I had seen and heard the story of Stewart being missing, but had no idea he was one of us.

My sincere condolences to his family and friends on such a sad outcome.

Can only agree with everything that has been said. Really nice touch getting the tile in the JHS. Means there will always be a reminder of Stewart at Firhill. Deepest condolences to yourself, his other friends and of course his family. RIP Stewart.

Its very sad indeed and my thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.

Closure hopefully brings a modicum of comfort. 

Its a year since a similar thing happened here in Algarve but sadly the chap has never been found and the family are left without any form of closure.
