Mike Stevens passes away

Published on: 12th June 2018

After a long fight with prostate cancer, Mike Stevens sadly passed away on 26th May at the age of 79.

Mike spent his working life in the toy trade, joining his father Leonard, a salesman, at Cowan De Groot, later to become Dekker Toys. He loved his job, and enjoyed trips to China with Derek Cowan in the early years. He retired from Dekker at the age of 65 and immediately joined Wizard Limited and brought the company great success, with his usual enthusiasm and hard work.

Barry Robson, former owner of Wizard, commented: “Everybody loved Mike. He will be sadly missed.”

Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Doreen, and two children, Terry and Michelle.

Mike’s funeral will be held at The Surrey & Sussex Crematorium, Crawley, on Friday 15th June.
