"A gift he shared with many people through performances around Doncaster and the UK. His music I know touched many people's hearts.
“If the legacy of a man's life is measured by the live's he's touched and how much he is loved - then I know a massive part of Stephen will live on forever in all who knew him.
“His family ask you allow them time to grieve together privately. We will look to arrange a celebration of Stephen's life in due course.
“Love from Paul, Christine, Jennifer and Rob.”
