Stephen Hardman 1945-2013 (Southport) OTS News.co.uk is saddened to report the death of Stephen Hardman, aged 68 years. Stephen passed away on 25th July 2013 Stephen was involved in the Southport Lifeboat right from the early days, one of the first crew members but after stepping down continued with navigation tuition and fundraising. A constant thrill seeker who’s pastimes have included motor bike racing, horse riding, roller-skating, rock climbing, scuba diving and fly fishing to name but a few. He was an accomplished musician and played a wide variety of guitars some of which he had made himself. He was non judgemental and always had time for anyone especially those that needed help. He will be so sadly missed by his family but they understand that it was his time to go as his health had suffered considerably over the last 8 years, even though right until the end he gave it his all.
