RIP Steve "Baby Geno" Griffiths (14/02/2014)

We were sadden to hear of the death this week, unexpectedly, of Steve "Baby Geno" Griffiths at the age of 61. He was a younger brother of Life Member Peter "Geno" Griffiths.

Steve was a member of the club in the mid 1970's and early 1980's competing in all the traditional harrier events over road and cross country. He especially enjoyed the camaraderie of the club. Recently he was a keen and regular supporter of the Harriers at cross country and road relay events.

As "Geno" recalled "I know he really valued meeting with so many friends and former adversaries at Andy Holden s funeral. He was a regular supporter at the Road relays at Sutton and recently enjoyed seeing the Tipton lads and ladies running at the Midland Counties at Leamington, where an obvious highlight was his godson Gareth finishing 8th in the U.17 mens race." 

Our thoughts go to his family and friends.

Update 18/02/2014 - Steve's funeral will be on Thursday 27th February 13.00 at Lodge Road Crematorium, Weoley Park Road, Weoley Castle, Birmingham followed by refreshments at Shenley Lane Community Association and Sports Centre, 472 Shenley Lane, Birmingham B29 4HZ.
