Nicholas Stewart who was tragically killed on the Henry Prince Estate on the 13 August 2014. He was doing the best thing he knew how – football, this was his passion.
Nicholas or Nick, Radar as he was affectionately called by close family and friends, loved football from an early age.
That fateful evening, he had just left the house an hour before and was a two minute walk from our home. He was tragically killed in front of children, young adults and adults, by a man who was said to have been mentally ill. Nicholas was 25 years old.
He was very much loved by family, friends and members of the community and beyond. In his passing there were testimonies of his willingness to help others, especially children and mothers. The shopkeepers and people I met on the street would say to me that my son was kind hearted and polite, with good manners and never held a grudge against others. He always wore that smile regardless - Nicholas also had his share of struggles in life.
A few months before his passing he got a job as a sales representative with ACN Communications and weeks before this, he took on a painting and decorating Apprenticeship. He was always trying to do positive things, amidst his struggles in society.
