"Utterly devastated to announce the loss of an Old School Parsons Green Leg-end. After a very short battle with Pancreatic Cancer, Steve Sitch passed away peacefully yesterday. He only recently left the service and sadly was too ill to attend his leaving do last Friday. I’m sure you’ll join with me in passing our most sincere and heartfelt Old School condolences to Jacquie, Jim and Jim. Steve was a pillar at Parsons Green, a larger than life personality who was never short of a smile, a laugh, mischief and muppetry. RIP you utterly mad bastard. One thing’s for sure, it’s mayhem and high jinx in heaven this morning. And he’ll have God in a Fulham shirt too, no doubt."
i worked with Steve in 1973, his father Jimmy was always a great bloke to work with and is still around. Steve only retired a couple o weeks ago and was too ill to attend his farewell party. He never mentioned his illness on the chats I had with him on FB. Rest in Peace.

We are all quite shocked on the District Line today after hearing the news last night. We were looking forward to giving the big-fella a great send-off last Friday at his retirement party but sadly it wasn't to be, the cancer took a quick hold of him.
Will be greatly missed.
(his father Jim being famous for being the driver in charge of D Stock 7100, which mounted the concourse at Richmond in 1987!)
