Mr Bloxwich, Stuart Williams

Posted: October 15, 2019 in Uncategorized

I suppose as a historian I should be used to things passing, but somehow I cannot really get used to it. Bloxwegian, local historian, author, photographer, sci-fi nut, one-time Viking and long-time colleague at Walsall Local History Centre Stuart Williams – or to me simply Stewy – has passed away. Stewy encouraged and then helped me set-up Wyrleyblog and it hurts to see him go but somehow, if there is justice, I get the feeling his spirit is about to be presented with the Freedom of the Borough of Bloxwich by Gene Roddenberry – to the pride of his parents as they look on.

My thoughts are with his brother, Andy.
