In memory of our beloved Stig H we have made this page. He will always remain in our hearts.
This button will still take you to Stigs startpage, but without any more links.
Stig liked MUSIC a lot and he bought records now and then, but he played them very selldom when I was home. We didn't agree about on what volume music should be played and couldn't Stig play loud he didn't play his records at all.Stig liked to have the radio on and the last years he used to listen to channels with popular music. He loved his guitars and very often in the evenings he hold the guitar in his hands while he watched tv.
To read books wasn't any of Stig's favourites except books about the pleasure in life like whiskey, beer, Porsches, Ferraries, Rolling Stones and other special books.
What he did read was comics and he prefered Beetle Bailey which he had on subscription for many years. In the Beetle Bailey magazine in Sweden we also have Hagar the wiking. Stig also read about the cowboy Lucky Luke.
Stig liked to cook but not ordinary food. He liked to make stew and to try new dishes. He tested to make different kind of pickled herring to easter, midsummer and christmas. Stig also liked to do his own snaps and sometimes it stood glass jars in the kitchen window containing alcohol, oranges and cinnamon. The first time Stig invited me to his home he served me cheese, bisquits and red italian wine (Villa Antinori). The first time he made me a dinner he served Nasi Goreng and after that grilled bananas! To christmas he used to do a very strong mustard and very strong devil eggs that our relatives appriciated a lot.

The type of cancer that Stig got in his throat - adenocarcinom - depends on longtime with gastric acid coming up in the throat. The tumor made metastases that was in the abdomen and on the intestines. This is a male kind of cancer and it's a very low living rate because the throat is so stretchable so the tumor is very big before it makes any trouble.
After the operation in August 2006 we made this THANK YOU under Stigs menypage.
Monday the 19th of Februari 2007 at 15.00 o'clock we got the sadest message of all, there wasn't anything more to do. Stig asked the doctor "how long time do I have left" and the answer was "whatever we say, it will be wrong". The 13th of March Stig came home to be nursed the last time in his home by Hallsbergs homesick care and me, his wife. Stig got so many visits, phonecalls, letters, messages, regards, presents and flowers. The consideration that our nearest, friends, workingfriends and all others showed Stig and his family was hughes. The last two weeks Stig was to tired to see anyone else but the closest family. Sunday the 27th of May at 08.27 Stig ended his life, in his own bed, calm and peacefull. The ad
