Community urged to remember Stephen Clements on anniversary

Residents are being encouraged to take time to remember the life of media personality Stephen Clements on the first anniversary of his passing.

The Carrick broadcaster (47), who hosted a mid-morning show on BBC Radio Ulster after successful stints at Citybeat and then Q Radio, passed away suddenly on January 6 2020.

The married father-of-two was a strong supporter of charity and community events.

The Stephen Clements Foundation, which was established to “celebrate and continue Stephen Clements’ ever-lasting legacy” is calling on people to reflect on his life this evening.

Posting on social media, a spokesperson for the foundation said: “Our hearts are broken and even though a year has gone by, the pain and loss in his absence is felt every day.

“The world hasn’t been the same since and it won’t be for a very long time. Please join us this evening to remember Stephen.

“In loving memory, we are asking people to light a candle at 7pm and to pause for a few moments.

“Think of Stephen’s huge big grin and a time where he made you giggle, smile or cry with laughter.

“Although he has left us, his legacy will live on forever. As always thank you for your continued support and kindness.”
