Since diagnosed last year June with stage 4 Lung Cancer, Owen fought an on-going battle to live and treat the disease in his own way. He was supported by the house community who attended his fundraiser at the Qube project club in Victoria London, which helped Owen to achieve his goal to receive treatment in Honduras. Owen returned to England to discover that his tumors had increased in size, but the cancer was contained. He continued to lead an active lifestyle, until he was gradually forced to slow down due to increased breathlessness. During January 2016 Owen collapsed with pneumonia and spent a long period of time at home to recuperate. He overcame this plight and managed to reach another milestone, djing at a weekender in Brussels, A celebration of life and friends. Although in great spirits, Owen’s breathlessness was a major cause for concern, until he admitted himself into hospital after not being able to breath. Owen was diagnosed with having fluid on the lungs, which was drained, but was also delivered the devastating news that his cancer had now spread to other organs in the body, alongside having pulmonary embolism in both lungs. He was discharged from the hospital after there was nothing more the health professionals could do to prevent his deterioration. Owen spent his final days at home, remaining vibrant, surrounded by friends and family. He playing his beloved vinyl and celebrated his return home from hospital. In the final weeks towards the end of March 2016, Owen's breathlessness became more deliberating for him, leaving him unable to have full conversations and bedridden. On the 25th March good Friday our brave friend Owen lost his battle with Cancer after fighting for 8 months against the disease. Owen is survived by his 3 children; mother, brother, two sisters and partner. Owen was a great inspiration to many for trying to treat his cancer with alternative treatments and his positive attitude. He remained defiant, determined to beat the disease and continued to live a full active life, completing his wish list. He was a popular character on the underground house scene, mostly known as a party photographer, promoter of parties and his radio shows. Owen will be greatly missed by his friends, family and the people who he touched worldwide.
