    Default Sven RIP

    I am sorry to have to inform our members of the sad passing of Steve Love (aka SVEN).
    Steve passed away on the 4th Feb 2012 in sad circumstances.
    He will be missed by many in Geocaching.
    My thoughts are with his family at this sad time
    RIP Steve

    With so many cachers around, I don't know all that many personally, but I'd seen Sven.'s YouTube channels and read his forum posts. It's not the same as knowing the man, but it makes his passing that bit more of a shock. I'm very sorry to hear the news and my thoughts and hugs go out to his friends and family at this terrible time. It shouldn't make a difference, but when it's someone who's not yet lived a full, long life, the tragedy is only compounded.
    RIP Steve - you'll be missed.

    Did not know him personally but have had some heated debates across this and other forums. He had an ascerbic wit and some dearly held views. I shall miss crossing swords with him

    I also didn't know him personally, but it's sad when anyone passes, especially one so young. My sympathies to his family and friends.

    (I note there's no similar thread at the Groundspeak forum. I've considered starting one but wondered if there was a good reason one wasn't already running. I know Sven. had his 'ups and downs' with Groundspeak, but wouldn't a thread there also be appropriate?)

    Thank you. I should cast my eyes around more - in truth, I rarely look outside the UK & Ireland section. I'm probably not alone in this. The link's appreciated.
