I've got two signed and framed paintings of Stan, the first one I got him to sign In the pub.

We all knew he wasn't In the best of health.

Don't really know what to say.

My Father had a profound influence on me, he was a lunatic.

Sadly, it seems more a question of when.

Hopefully his passing will be as smooth as the passing he treated us to down the years.

Some of us were blessed to have seen him in his prime.

When Rodney went thought I would never see the like again. Then Stan arrives and the rest is history. Very sad news

I'm taking it that the poster wanted us to know to send him as many positive vibes as we can muster, Dave.

End of 2023/ beginning of '24 really has not been great for all our much-loved heroes, has it?

So sad that this bastard disease has robbed his family of years of decent life for him. We will mourn his inevitable demise but what a character, what a footballer and what cherished memories.

Kind of fitting that it should happen around the Rotherham home game, after we had that big Stan Bowles Day for him a few years ago for a home match against them.
Last time he got to grace the Loftus Road pitch and milk that applause with "Stanley, Stanley, Stanley" ringing out all around the ground.

I think the last time he was at HQ was after his condition had worsened, for that pre-season friendly against Bournemouth where before the game he came out on the pitch accompanied by Don Shanks and Gerry Francis.

So, so sad. As others have said, we all realised this day was probably getting nearer but it doesn't make it any easier.

I think after he does finally pass, the club should change that name on the stand. Change it to the 'Stan Bowles Stand'. He was always 'Stan'. He was never known at the club as 'Stanley'.

Not ashamed to say that I shed a tear or two on that day. He looked frail, but suddenly broke into a huge smile and raised his arms aloft as the crowd sang, "Stan-ley".

He really was something from another planet in his day. Worth the ticket price alone to watch him do his thing.

Much love to him and his family at this tough time.

Been dreading this, 3 of my family went with this f#cking disease, one at 52. If true, I will shed a tear for the great man , and I'm 68.

It's being so happy that keeps me going.

Stanley is the man, not just the footballer, but the man I have loved most in my life. At first as a teenager watching his genius, later on getting to know him a little, and then latterly helping to raise money for his care. When he goes we will have lost the single footballer who bore the soul of our beloved club. Joyous, wayward, wonderful. We will never see his like again. My heart is full.

I’m with you on this having seen my dad (a season ticket holder and fan from the 30’s/40’s).
In fact, I’m doing the Brecon Beacons Memory Walk in June and will be on here begging for sponsorship later in the spring.

Were you there for the game against Sunderland in '78, I think it was (maybe 77)?
Dreadful first half from both sides, but the 2nd half really came to life from us, and Stan scored one of the most memorable goals at LR I've ever seen (they put it in the highlights reel for that Stan Bowles Day).

Just found the link for it - Lord knows how many times I've watched his again!:

I was lucky enough to get an invite to Chiswick Cricket Club after that game to meet the great man. He was on good form, seemed to be aware who and where he was, and was happy to pose for photos along with Don Shanks. So glad I managed to get a pic with the pair of them, such a privilege

'Joyous, wayward, wonderful'

What a fitting and insightful set of words they are to summarise Stan.

Not old enough to see him in the flesh.

First game 1980 but know the love and adulation for him.

My aunt passed recently and had dementia but very bad for last year so was a blessing for her as really had zero quality of life.

There is no good way to pass but this condition is incredibly cruel.

Ironically the patient has no memory just turns back into a baby sadly and leaves the family destroyed just trying to care for them and waiting foe the journey to end.
Its called the long goodbye for a reason .
Best wishes to him and his family

Although music strangely can be recalled and remembered

Devastating for families.

Friend mine - not that money helps at all really in these situations- but his parents were quite wealthy.

His mum was in care home for five years and his dad for ten.

Wiped out the entirety of his inheritance along with visiting and being told to f off you wotsit by two previously loving parents

extremely cruel disease for all.
