It is with the heaviest of hearts we announce the passing of Gordon McQueen, 70, who died at home in the early morning today, leaving behind his wife Yvonne, daughters Hayley and Anna, son Eddie and his beloved grandchildren Rudi, Etta & Ayla.

We hope that as-well as creating many great football memories he’ll be remembered most for his character. Our house was always full of friends, family & football, just as it was in his last few months as he fought so bravely in what became a very cruel battle against dementia.

The disease may have taken him too soon, but he definitely lived life to the full, the ultimate entertainer, the absolute heart and soul of every occasion, the most fun dad anyone could wish for.

A huge thanks goes to the wonderful staff at Herriot Hospice Homecare for their outstanding care, the utterly incredible Marie Curie team who were there at the end with Gordon’s wife & daughters & Head for Change for the emotional support & respite care. Also to our wonderful  friends & family who rallied around at the worst of times,  going above & beyond, for that we are so very grateful.
