Andrew Pearson lost his battle with cancer over the weekend. He passed away Saturday morning having fought the disease for over 18 months. He managed to see the majority of last season – something he didn’t expect to do over a year before, but in the week following the semi final he received the news that the Chemo was no longer keeping the cancer under control.
He had loved the Championship winning season and was thrilled to see us back in the Premier League. As a valued Member of the DDCWWFCSC for over 20 years he was known by many for his gentle smile and quiet ways. At our last Dinner when he was invited to sit on the top table, he decided to speak about his health to the members present and showed immense bravery to do so in front of a room full of people. This brought the utmost respect from everyone present.
He was not well enough to make the final game at Anfield, but we were able to help him get to all of the games that he wanted to attend during his final season. Our thoughts are with his wife Jane and the family at this sad time, RIP.
