Last week we received the terrible news that one of our chefs, Stephen Graham, had passed away after a tragic bicycle accident. His funeral is today at his home in Northumberland and the whole Bramble Ski and Haute Montagne team – many of whom were very good friends with him – will be there in spirit with his family and friends.
Stevie was one of those people, instantly and infectiously likeable. He came to us as an incredibly talented chef, and has left as an inspirational friend.
He was always smiling or laughing, he loved the mountains, his photography and was constantly planning his next travel adventure. At work Stevie was a man with a plan and had great drive. He carried his joie de vivre with him always and it showed in the food he prepared and in the complete satisfaction of the guests that he looked after. Our business is built on the back of the exceptional people who provide the service in our properties and Stevie epitomised this.
He will be missed. but his influence and memory will live on. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
Ross Lemass and Stevie formed a chef/host partnership recently and Ross put together the following Youtube collection of images in memory of Stevie.
Stevie was planning to raise money for Unity Mission Trust, so if anyone feels like doing something in his memory, please feel free to contribute to this charity.
