In Memoriam - SharkofKent (Nigel) died 12/02/2007

It is with a huge amount of regret I have to tell you Nigel Paine - known to everyone here as SharkofKent - died over the weekend.

Nigel travelled with us to most European games and was a well known face at many supporters club events.

As rugby was Nigel's biggest passion in life, the SSSC have decided they would like to mark his passing by making a donation to the Matt Hampson Trust. If you would like to contribute please send a cheque made payable to the SSSC, to us c/o Edgeley Park, Hardcastle Road, Stockport. SK3 9DD. Alternatively you can hand your donations to us at the SSSC table in the Beer Village at the London Irish game.

On a personal note, Nigel is someone I will miss, he was a true gentleman. He was a single man and we don't know his family but I feel a donation to Matt is something he would appreciate.

Thanks everybody.

Edited to change thread title.



"Sh*t he's got an axe" he said as he turned and ran out of the room.

Well that really @#$%& sucks! I am truly truly sorry for his family and friends and I hope that they are all doing ok.

In the few exchanges that we had SoK was friendly, sharing and above all a gentleman. He was a true sharks fan! Which in my book makes him one hell of a guy.

I hope all the sharks fans that knew him personally are ok, my thoughts and prayers go out to Nigel, his family and his friends.

Go Sharks!

Absolutely dreadful news.

He was a regular pre-match breakfaster at T'Oak and he will be sorely missed.

This is really sad news. Nigel sat next to our group and as CE says, was a true gentleman. He was always friendly and approachable, and I'm going to miss him. :-/

I was very upset to read about Nigel.
I first met him in the Royal Oak before one of our games some time ago. I subsequently bumped into him at various away games and the Royal Oak. We normally had a long chat about how Sale were doing as I found him a very easy person to talk to.
We will miss you Nigel.

We too are saddened and shocked by the news. I only spoke to him a couple of weeks ago.

Nigel was a genuinely nice chap, quiet and unassuming, and a true and devoted Sale fan. We travelled with him to many matches, both home and abroad, and he will be sadly missed.

We think a donation to the Matt Hampson Trust in his name is a particularly good and apt idea.

Very shocked - Tricky rang me earlier to tell me and this is my first opportunity to get to the computer since then.

We met up with Nigel last September before the Worcester away game. He had seen the post saying we'd be in the Swan pre-match and lo! he arrived. We had a good yarn and a drink and shared a taxi to the ground, and then met up later back in the Swan to save a few more pints from going off.

Nigel was a really nice guy, a gent, and always took time to come and say hello if he saw us. Hope he enjoys our next few matches from the grandstand in the sky, and we'll have a drink to him on Sunday before the Wasps game.

God Bless x

I hope I'm not confusing you - if I am, then my sincere apologies - but Nigel died in February 2007 and this is an In Memoriam nudge.

I had hoped the "lest we forget" suffix would have given the game away, so sorry if I didn't make it clear.

Nigel was a breakfasting trencherman at T'Oak and was excellent company. Her ladyship and I enjoyed his companionship over the steaming eggs and b on several occasions.

We have lost three [at least three known to me] characters from this august forum and from the SSSC and I feel that we should, at least once a year, remember their passing, lest we forget.

Again, apologies for any confusion - it is entirely my fault.

I've received the following email from a member of Nigel's family and I'm sure she won't mind me posting it:

Hi

My son, Nigel's nephew, found your thread reporting the sad loss of Nigel on your Sale Supporters Club website this evening. Please could you thank your forum members on our behalf for the wonderful kind messages they have left regarding Nigel.

I actually divorced his brother many years ago and had not been in touch with Nigel for many years but will always remember him fondly. He is also missed by his two nephews and his godson. He was hugely missed by his father who died a year after Nigel. Your members might be fully aware that Nigel's other love was Cricket and in his memory, money donated at his funeral was used to purchase two cricket trophies for the school that Nigel used to go to in Ashford, Kent.

Thank you once again for your lovely messages. I know they will be valued by my sons.

Best wishes

Nikki

Just a little further information about Nigel, from his old school Ashford Grammar School, now renamed the Norton Knatchbull School in memory of its founder:

Quote:
Nigel Paine - We were saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Nigel Paine (1967 1974) at the age of 52. He had been battling a heart condition for many years but privately and stoically. He has worked as a systems analyst for British Rail at their Crewe headquarters and was an ardent follower of cricket and rugby.

Lest we forget departed friends.

Nigel left us four years ago today.

R-i-P.





If I should die and leave you here awhile,
Be not like others, sore and undone,
Who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep.

For my sake turn again to life and smile
Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do
Something to comfort other hearts than thine.

Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine
And I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

No doubt Nigel looks down before every home game at the AJB and asks "But where can you get a decent breakfast?"
