Sadly, 'Stevo' passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning after a short but fierce fight against cancer.


Stevo joined Argaum in the summer and had high aspirations of what was to come.  He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family at this time.

 Rest peacefully now.


“It is my sad duty to inform the Plymouth Argaum RFC community of the death of John “Stevo” Stevens. He died at his home with his family and his beloved fiancé Max at his bed side. Stevo had been battling cancer for the past 6 months and passed away on 27th Feb 2009.

Stevo, former landlord of the Masonic Inn and Bombardier in 29 Commando Regiment, last played for Argaum in the 24-18 victory over Plymouth Barbarians in September 2008 before his health deteriorated. No one can doubt that his powerful presence in the front row contributed enormously to the Argaum victory.  The forwards, and team as a whole have missed is character, sense of humour and hard work this season. Stevo my friend, may you rest in peace.”
