David Dean - RIP (UPDATED)
We have funeral details for Club's former Press Officer, Programme Editor and Webmaster David Dean, who passed away in the early hours of last Wednesday morning.
It will take place on Friday 7th December at 1.00pm at the Grenoside Crematorium. Refreshments served in the Tearoom afterwards.
No flowers please. Donations can be made to The Macmillan Palliative Care Unit at the Northern General.
"Deano" as he was affectionately known, was a dedicated member of the Sheffield FC family and committee for over ten years, being editor of the Sheffield FC matchday programme in the late 90s to early 2000s, as well as being the founder of the much loved supporters' website Behind The Flag.
As well as being a follower of SFC, he was also a mad Harlequins RFC supporter, travelling home and away to watch the Quins, and was also a big fan of bands Crowded House and The Stranglers, and had plenty of stories to tell of the bands - including the day he inadvertently ended up on the Crowded House tour bus by mistake.
Probably our fondest memories of Deano was his dry wit, and observational humour, as well as his loyalty to Sheffield FC during the switch from Don Valley Stadium to our current home at The Coach and Horses.
All at Sheffield FC send their love and condolences to Deano's partner Marilyn Swales, as well as his brother Steve.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Rest in Peace Deano.
