Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with sadness that Hawkeye has been informed of the death of Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Stephen Paul Lagadu REME (17 Jul 55 – 10 Jul 23). Stephen enlisted for service with REME in 1971 and went on to a commission within the Corps. His service included postings in support of the Army Aviation. The message below from his family gives details of his funeral service on 28 Jul 23.

It is with huge sadness that the Lagadu Family are sharing news of the passing of Stephen Paul Lagadu (retired Lieutenant Colonel in the REME). He passed away peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by family on Monday 10th July 2023 after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
A service will be held at 11:30 on Friday 28th July in St Michael’s Church, Mere. A wake to celebrate Steve’s life will follow also within Mere.
Steve requested family flowers only with a donations page and church collection being established for the Army Benevolent Fund and the Salisbury Hospice, who cared for him in his final days.
There is no obligation to wear black. Anyone from a military background can wear blazers with regimental ties (medals optional).
