Friends gather at LSH to celebrate the life of Stuart “Pod” Fowles

FRIENDS of a beloved sports lover who passed away two years ago came together to celebrate his life.

Stuart “Pod” Fowles died on October 31, 2020 at the age of 50 after a short illness which resulted in hundreds of tributes being bestowed on him.

Stu was a popular sports enthusiast and airline employee. In particular, he was a huge Saints fan, an avid golfer, a former member of St Helens Tennis Club and a regular at The Gerard Arms at Dentons Green.

He completed a youth training service at Pilks and worked at the NHS in St Helens and Knowsley and then at the Liverpool Health Authority.

Stuart went on to work for several airlines and moved to various locations across the country including Luton.

Having previously been unable to do so due to Covid-related restrictions, Stu’s close lifelong friends Graham Roberts and Dave Howarth organized a get-together earlier this month at Liverpool St Helens Rugby Club, where Pod played and was a popular figure.

The Friends of Stuart Fowles sponsor a game at LSH each year in his memory around the time of his birthday, 12th January.

A fitting event was held in his honor as friends traveled from afar to attend, raising £600 for the Willowbrook Hospice that evening.

“Even though he was away from St Helens but we always knew when he came back everyone would be at the Gerard, on Christmas Eve he was the local celebrity,” Graham said.

“He grew up with us and when he moved away he made such an impression down in Luton, whenever we want to hold an event they’ve spread the word.

‘They stayed at the Mickle Head and came to Moss Lane. They had heard so much about Gerard and LSH.

“We took her to the Gerard, where there is a photo of Pod.”

Graham added that they will try to continue fundraising efforts in memory of Pod in the future.

“We will continue and we should as Pod was such a great guy, he was so significant.

“He was selfless, a top guy and sadly missed.” Friends gather at LSH to celebrate the life of Stuart “Pod” Fowles
