Gordon Urquhart

Recommended Posts

So sad to let you know about the untimely passing of Steve Rowan, sometimes known round these parts as Gordon Urquhart. Steve was a great friend and a good buddy, and I will miss him dearly.

Steve was an active member of the Saints community. Back in the early days of the guest book forums, whilst living down south he was Teletext Boy. Announcing the match day goings ons  to the exiles online during the Tom Hendrie era.

Later, he poignantly captured the passing of one of Saints’ most sacred treasures by producing Love Street the Movie.

He leaves behind a fine young man Andrew, with whom he could be found in the West Stand every home game, cheering on the buddies. My thoughts are very much with him.

Ach, that’s sad.  Untimely indeed.  :( 

A genuinely decent intelligent man.
 

We met in The Last Post a few years ago, to talk about a movie just like the one that featured the Gordon Urquhart character. He was funny, articulate, passionate and promptly bought his round.  Easily likeable.

My best wishes to his family and friends.

That’s really sad news. Stevie was a great Buddie. I came to know him through the online Saints community and he was a true gentleman. Here he is introducing the final match day at our beloved home Love Street which he produced alongside cameraman Allen McLaughlin (Triggers brother) who used to post on here as Firhill Saint.

RIP Stevie. You will be missed.

Heard the news on twitter a few days ago. Really sad news. A lovely guy. Always happy to talk to all about his beloved Saints. Condolences to his family down in Troon. Another great buddie gone. So sad

Jesus that has totally taken the wind out of me reading this, awful news and a real shock as I haven't seen him for a few months. Obviously living in the same town we naturally got to know each other and myself and my son used to meet him and his boy on the train or in the 1877 club most weeks. Very very sad.

Very sad to hear of his passing, was one of the first guys I met during the whole 10000hours stuff and came across a copy of the video only yesterday which he gave me to gen up on all things Saints.

Sorry to hear of the passing of a fellow Bud , especially one who seems to have been a thoroughly decent soul 🙁 R.I.P.

Can anyone who knew him answer , was Stevie originally from Foxbar ? Sort of Don / Dee drive area ? 

Lammermuir Drive Glenburn when I got to know him about '78

Despite growing up in the same area (some years apart) and the shared love of saints, i only really knew Steve since the time we both worked for different companies on the BBC's Pacific Quay project and became friends there.

a thoroughly nice man without pretensions and a very pleasant way with him.  I rarely go to games these days and it's maybe three years since I spoke with him, which is sad.

very sad loss and like Allan says, hopefully Steve is in a happier place now
