Obituary: Steve Frisby

Steve wasn't someone I knew personally: indeed, he predated me at Peterborough Wargames Club by a long way. I suspect, however, that some of my readers may well have encountered him on the tournament circuit in the past decade or so, be it DBR or Warhammer. Grahame Middleton from the club wrote an obituary for our site:
Steve Frisby was a founding member of our club back in the the late eighties. He was a stalwart of our early attempts at running participation games at shows and frequently represented the club in BHGS competitions, where he won many trophies at DBR and Warhammer, including umpiring Warhammer events at Britcon. He won several awards in some of our own campaigns and was always a tricky opponent who could come up with  very effective combinations of magic and killer troop types – you always knew you’d been in a fight after playing Steve! His passing is a loss to the wargaming community and he will be missed by those who knew him.
Steve passed away, after a battle with cancer, on Monday.

The club will be presenting a trophy in his memory at the Hereward Wargames Show in November.
