STEPHEN BROOKSBANK was a special person who was known as a caring and committed Christian who was recognised for his dedication to helping others whenever he could and the fact that he didn’t see obstacles just solutions.
He passed away quite suddenly at the end of May and his friends at Age Concern Marbella and San Pedro Alcantara decided to celebrate his life rather than grieve his loss by holding a lunchtime get together at the Alabardero Restaurant in San Pedro.
A very large turn out reminisced about their friendship with Stephen and President of the Age Concern Group, Tom Burns gave a short speech about the man who he called one of the three most important people he had ever met.
It was Stephen who literally stopped Tom in the street and after asking if he was British (and accepting that it was actually much better that he was Irish) persuaded and cajoled him into forming the Age Concern Marbella Group.
There were many stories about the positive and friendly manner in which he undertook everything in his life and his Pastor also gave a moving speech concerning the man that he knew and led all of those present in prayer for his soul but also for those who were his friends and family.
