My darling husband, Treforest Gump passed away last Saturday after being diagnosed with terminal cancer last year. Running was his life and passion. The amount of times I used to moan when we got out of bed at 3 or 4 am in the morning to travel to races lol. I'd give anything now to moan about this again. His last couple of races were The Aberdare 10k 4/07/10, the Boddington Marathon 19/06/10 and the Dartmoor Discovery, which he disappointingly had to drop out of, probably due to the cancer. He loved this challange. There's quite a few runners I met when we were at these races. I remember quite a few from the Teighbridge Trotters, Running for Beer, Plodding Hippo and a lovely couple from up North but cant remember your names, we camped next to you at the Dartmoor Discovery 2 - 3 years back. I'll miss you all and wish you all the best with the running. For the people who met us but cant quite put a face to the name, I always had our 2 laboradors (puppies) with us Marley is golden and Maisey is a choccy lab.
Thanks all for the memories I have of you even if you never met my husband you shared the same passion.

Thank you KK for pointing this thread out to me
Mrs Treforest Gump, I am so saddened to read of your news
I remember you and your hubby.A lovely man
thinking of you
Mrs Treforest Gump, so sorry to hear this sad news. It was my husband and I who camped next to you at Dartmoor a few years back. We had the good fortunne to meet your hubby there previously and also had a great weekend with him at Two Bridges in Rosyth. He was a true gem of a guy, can't believe he's gone.
Take care, our thoughts are with you, Lorna xxxxxxxxx
Lovely pictures Mrs mac
I am so saddened to hear this news. Last time I saw him was at Boddington last year, but I'll always remember him from Dartmoor Discovery... he was a lovely person and so much fun.
My heart goes out to you and your family xx
Mrs TG - I am so sorry to hear that Kevin passed away. Those were indeed happy days at the Discovery
So sorry to hear of your loss, Dartmoor was a fun time.
Thanks RFB and Trinity for mentioning on FB as I don't really come here much, and woouldn't have known...
LT and Mrs LT..
Thanks Trinity, yesterday was a very special day for me and I was thrilled (but expected) to see the number of people who were there to celebrate his life, especially Elvis lol, I wonder if he's ever done a funeral before. Kev would have loved it. We didn't leave the pub until 11 last night and people were still telling me stories about him or showing me photos. Quite a few were drunk but I wanted to stay sober so I could remember them all.
Mrs TG x
I don't post here regularly and never knew your husband, so was quite shocked and saddened when I started to read your first post on this thread. But it would appear that through the sadness there is happiness and that husband touched the lives of so many people; a difficult thing to achieve in reality. You must be so proud of him! I'm so sorry for your loss but I do hope that your cherished memories continue to bring you happiness for many, many years to come.
