Matt Stockdale. We'll miss you buddy.
Today is a very sad day at Planet Eclipse. One of our own, Matt Stockdale, passed away this morning after he lost his fight with Cancer.
Matt Stockdale has been at Planet Eclipse since 2005 as the production manager and has been an important cog in the development and progress of Planet Eclipse since he came on board. Matt has been active in the Paintball community for many many years, opting to ref more than play in recent times at the CPPS.
Matt still took to the field even through his illness and always with a smile, and never a complaint or sign of any self pity. Matt continued to work at Planet when he could as he had so many friends here and this is where he wanted to be when he wasn’t with his family.
Matt fought valiantly against the Cancer and we all thought he had won the battle only for Matt to be struck down in a super fast period of time over the last few short weeks.
Matt’s two beautiful daughters Nicola and Alice are doing a sponsored run this weekend and are collecting donations for Cancer Research & Bowel Cancer UK. We are not even sure if they will still be running after the tragic news but I guess the thought will still be the same if they run or not. If anyone wants to give towards a great cause I’m sure Matt’s Wife (Jen) and the kids will be over the moon.
From everyone here at Planet Eclipse we would like to wish his family our very deepest sympathies and also to wish Matt a peaceful onward journey to the next start gate…
Ledz & Jules.
