Simon Stevens

Simon Stevens

Simon Stevens was a kind, caring and thoughtful husband, who sadly lost his battle with cancer aged 38.

Simon was an active man who enjoyed biking, snowboarding, skiing, and camping, but his main passion was motorbikes.

Simon was born and raised in Stamford, Lincolnshire, attending St Gilberts Primary School and the Robert Manning School in Bourne.

He Joined the Royal Air Force at 19, serving for 12 years as an aircraft technician at RAF Marham in Norfolk, and RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire. He also served in the Falkland Islands, Oman, and Iraq.

After leaving the service in 2014 he began a job with Jaguar Land Rover, in Birmingham, where he lived with his partner, Lynne, whom he married a few days before he died.

Simon & Lynne are proud owners of a Greyhound and have also adopted three more from the Daybreaks Trust in Solihull, they both volunteered for the Trust and one of Simon’s last wishes was to raise funds to help them, a fundraising page was set up in his name and it hit £10,000 just days before he died.

Simon died on Saturday the 13th of November 2021.
