Unfortunate news

Hello, I have been thinking for a while that I need to post this. My name is Sam and I'm Charlton North Downs (Paul's) Son.

Unfortunately on the 5th of February 2011 my dad passed away with a sudden heart attack. He went out to play Tennis that Morning and said he was feeling bad indigestion, so went to sit down. It was a couple of minutes later that he collapsed on the floor. Steve one of his tennis friends said he went unconscious and stopped breathing within a minute. It was very quick.

Even though i know Charlton has not been doing very well and not many comments have been made by my dad the reason being. I thought i would tell you just in case any of you had regular contact with him or wondered why he has stopped posting.

I would most appreciate it if any of you did know him well enough or whatever he ha said i would very much like to know. my email is

I have read through my dads blog all the way through for about the first time (skipping Charlton scores haha). Reading his blog he never seemed to tell much about what kind of person he was like. I thought i would let you know a little bit more about him.

Growing up with my dad was very good. One of the first things i remember was his enthusiasm to try and get my family fit. It would be walks every weekend. He particularity tried to get me into exercise, fishing, football and being sort of manly. However to say i think it failed, i hated those things and was more like a nerdy kid who played computer games all the time.

I cant remember an amazing amount when i was younger but he certainly cared for his family. He was never open with his emotions in particular but seemed to try and do things right with good morals. He was a good man.

As i grew older i was a typical teenager of "life is so unfair bla bla bla". I didnt treat my parents good and throughout they were very patient with my bad attitude! They both wanted the best for me and my sister Kim.

It wasnt until I became a Christian at 16 that my relationship with my dad really changed and more than once he looked at me and said "sam im so proud of you annd how much you have changed." that really meant alot.

Even though he did'nt show his love with cuddles and affection he basically did so much for our family. He certainly cared, alot.

My mum and dad always wanted what was best for us, and seemedto always try and solve the problem. He loved us very much and the same to him. I would say he was a good man, likable, and seemed to be able to get on with most people (infact i never seen him not get on with someone before). People liked him.

I am 21 now. I know he did'nt mention but i got married in July to a lovely, beautiful woman from mexico I met. The day i got married the day went so well, and it was one of the happiest days i had seen him and so ive been told aswell. It is great how my family has accepted Flor my wife as family. Also how they have supported us even though we were young.

Ofcourse my dad was not perfect, but the relationship i had was one where we both cared and loved each other a lot. In many ways i'm like him.

Our family considering the circumstances, we are doing ok i guess. We seem to be doing better than what we did at first.

The ortopsy said that his left ventricle was enlarged causeing a blockage. His mums side of the family many have died of heart attacks at an early age. However my dad though that it was due to high blood pressure and cholesterol. But we might think that it was the enlarged ventricle that might be passed on to generation. There was no symptoms with my dad and it was a thing that no one could of done anything about probably. He was 54 when he died.

If there is anything anyone would like to know or anything you would like to share please do!

Sam, shortly after your Dad passed, your Aunt emailed me and asked me to relay the sad news to his fellow bloggers.
It was a very sad task but the bloggers responded by passing on the news to their readers.
The amazing degree of response was a clear indication of how much regard your Dad was held in.
No Dads are perfect. Mine certainly wasn't but I miss him terribly since he passed away last year.
Being a Dad myself, I'm sure he would want nothing more than for you to have the best of everything.
Your Dad was very well regarded
and it wasn't just because he supported the same team as us. Feel free to feel proud Mate. Sorry you have to be without him.

Dave at Forever Charlton here. We featured your Dad's blog along with many others in our daily news feed.

Just to say that I didn't know him but many speak well of him.

I'm also a Christian involved in church leadership

Thanks for posting - it will be read by many

Mike BARRY said...

I did not have the good fortune to know your Dad, but always looked forward to reading his well prepared and measured BLOG.
He obviously had great enthusiasm and committed a lot of thought and time for his posts. I will miss reading them and the CAFC community will be the worse for their absence.
It is always a tragedy when one is struck down at such a young age and seems so unfair and you and your family have my utmost sympathy.

Miss Kish said...

So sorry to hear this. I always enjoyed reading your Dad's blog. I am sure your father would be proud of your posting on here and letting readers know what had happened. It can't have been easy for you. Life is unfair I reiterate Mike Barry's sentiments. All the best to you and yours.

Hello Sam

thanks for your lovely piece on your Dad. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but really enjoyed reading his articles because they spoke from the heart. He was an ordinary bloke like the rest of us, so it was very easy to empathise with his views, even if you didn't agree with them!

What will never change of course is that we will remember his Blog for the rest of our lives. And so CND will live on in Charton folk lore!

Best wishes

Sam, I'm very sorry about the loss of your father.

A number of fellow CAFC bloggers wrote tributes when they learned of his passing. Some examples are here incase you haven't seen them:

Blackheath Addicted said...

Sam, just wanted to add my condolences and to wish you the best for the future. I can't say I knew your father well, but we met up a few times before games and at a couple of CAFC bloggers events. I think you can glean from the above comments that those who met him liked him and enjoyed his company. I just wonder how he didn't manage to convince you of the joys of being an Addick!
